Do you use gmail or yahoo or live? I'm trying to find a good primary email to use with my iPhone 4. And do you use the mail app that came with your iPhone?

I like my Gmail, very reliable. I also have a private email I use what is hosted on my server.

I use my @mac.com address for most things
And I have a Gmail address for personal use
Also have my work email forwarded to a separate Gmail address

On the phone, I use the Gmail app for Gmail and the Mail app for @mac.com

Never used Yahoo at all

I've been an a @mac user since apple first unveiled it as part of the iTools suite of services.

I also have a gmail account that I never use, a hotmail account that is dormant and a couple of domain names with emails associated to them for non primary needs.

I use Gmail; have been since it was beta invite only in 2005. I used the native mail app the whole time until Gmail's iOS app finally got Push Notifications. Now that's my main email app.

I use AOL as my secondary account just because you get two addresses (@aim.com and @aol.com) and because you get an AIM account with it, which is the best popular messaging system. Also, I think the @aol.com address looks nice.

I also use GMAIL as a tertiary account since I have a YouTube account.

Avoid Yahoo or Microsoft.

I use the same hotmail address that I've had for the past 12 years and I use the standard mail app which works really well for me.

My personal email is hosted by fasthosts, with my domain. Works great.
Also have used iCloud and Yahoo in the past, no problems at all. I used the built in Mail app.
