    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 have a gmail account, however, I'm thinking about getting rid of it. I was able to get first.last@outlook.com and I'm testing it out. I use the native mail app on my iPhone for both of them.

    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.

    Gmail for personal & Gmail for work (university) both via iOS Mail b/c Gmail app doesn't permit multiple accounts/switching.

    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.
