The best email service for 2015?
I haven't tried AOL, but if MS Outlook is any indication, it's still GMAIL. I have yahoo and gmail. Advantage GMAIL.
I use and love gmail because of their excellent spam filtering. That said, I no longer use Verizon Fios for email because their spam filtering doesn't work at all....
whats wrong with apple service
Spam protection is just not up to snuff relative to gmail.
Moved over to iCloud a few years ago.
I picked gmail but I don't use it.
I'm still waiting for the results of the 2014 survey.
I can't claim to have tried them all, but google mail is convenient to manage. I still miss Eudora...
I use gmail and outlook.
I use gmail, yahoo, outlookl. I stopped using gmail as much when I was looking to buy a vehicle and started sending a few emails out. I noticed the advertisements started to change based on this. So did a google email test where I sent emails and put information in them about specific items in the text area, and sure enough it looks as though google actually reads your emails to cater their advertising to you. I wasn't to comfortable with that, so now not using it very often.
Also can't stand the default conversation view in gmail. Not sure why so many email services have started to follow this. Maybe I am one of the few who like the old way of sorting emails. give me by date in the order I receive and I am happy. At least you can adjust.
In reality outlook is probably the best, but for some reason don't use it often.
FYI..Isn't google the great "big data" satan? I am surprised it is number one...Kind of.
I used to be a big Yahoo mail fan, they served me well for years. But somewhere in all their constant UI updated to it over the years, I felt it got clunkier and slower. Somewhere in one of these transitions, they lost the first five or six years worth of all my saved emails, as well. I don't know if they've improved, but I definitely wouldn't personally go back to them.
AOL is simple enough and works fairly well, or at least that's the vibe I get from the two or three brief times a year I have to check mine. I've never used Outlook though.
I have a gmail, but it's my spambox. I always hear people rave about the supposedly great spam filtering gmail has, but it has never worked for me worth a darn.
Nowadays my primary email is a small, free IMAP provider through Mozilla Thunderbird. Best email account I've ever had.
Outlook sucks, as if they tried to make the most logical and used features hard to reach.
Yahoo is better, although I almost never use it.
Gmail is confusing on long email threads (online), but I guess it's the best of the three. It has some nice features well implemented.
I also like iCloud, because it's integrated with the rest of Apple's suite, and remains coherent even from a browser.
I use all of the email services for different purposes, but my favorites are Fastmail (for the gorgeous web UI and exceptional IMAP), Gmail (for the excellent spam filter), and Yahoo Mail (for the space).
Google will tell u it's gmail
iCloud without a doubt. I still have my gmail address, but iCloud works so well and I appreciate apples commitment to privacy so much that I'm using iCloud as my main email
Why is iCloud even under other? AOL gets its own radio button, but not iCloud? \O/
I aleays felt that a home user should have TWO email address. One for online shopping and the other for close family, friends! This way you can slim down your SPAM with good filters!
Sorry to revive an older thread.
Best service as a category depends on what you really need.
For me the best service is provided by ProtonMail (agreeing with Tamagotchi) and Tutanota as I value privacy more than anything else. The latter has an iOS and an Android app as well.
Gmail has become very good at detecting spam due to advances in neural networks. I still use them and probably won't stop anytime soon.
