    What is you're preferred email provider when using the iPhone.

    I have always been a Hotmail user for about 10 years now and i used to use HTTPMail to access my account through Mail.

    When i bought my iPhone I was really disappointed that this no longer worked and I ended up going the IzyMail route.

    After 6 months use, and finding IzyMail absolutely rubbish, I decided move to Gmail and forward my Hotmail messages during this transition period.

    Now I want to ask everyone which provider they most like/prefer?

    I would love a 'push' service, but most importantly, I want something reliable and quick. Have I made the right choice?

    I used to use hotmail until I got the iPhone because I realized there isn't an account for it. So I setup a yahoo and gmail account and use them both.

    Gmail.

    I also have my own server with IMAP enabled, but the problem is, spam filtering on the server is garbage. There are 3 separate spam handlers and they let through dozens of spams a day, unless I set the filter so strict that half my personal correspondence ends up junked.

    I've been with 3 different hosting companies, and Spam Assassin and similar spam stuff they typically use work terribly, in my experience. Gmail is almost 100% correct.

    i have my own website (or rather domain) but i run it through Gmail.
    works great. can still send and receive using my domain email addresses and can get them anywhere.
    and its IMAP which is great for my macbook and iPhone.
