And have you tried others? Why do you use what you use?
gmail for personal stuff and storage, outlook for work. used yahoo in the past and it sucks. gmail trumps all
I have been using Gmail since it launched, but I am slowly moving into iCloud as I'm trying to distance myself away from Google as much as I can.
Both have been good when it comes to spam. I remember coming home from a week long trip in 2001 and having 1,000 messages of just pure spam in my AOL mailbox. It's amazing how the technology has evolved.
Outlook is actually an excellent service. They learned from their hotmail mistakes.
I've used gmail pretty much since it was first released; my username is exactly what I wanted. I used to use Yahoo but left after gmail due to the desirable username. I also have my own domain that I installed Google Apps on it for a gmail interface on accounts I create. These are usually for places where I don't feel like giving my "real" email. I also have a @mac, @me, & @icloud but I seldom use it, usually only for in-store Apple purchases.
I use none of the ones mentioned in the survey, hence I clicked 'other'.
My host provides Squirrelmail; it's not too fancy but it doesn't need to be. Naturally I use Mail at home, and it's rare that I need to check my email while out and about.
Gmail for personal stuff, outlook at work (though the software, not necessarily the email)
I like all the services that come along with having a Google account. I also think Gmail is easy to use and has a lot of features that I like. I find that the web interface for Outlook is too heavy - it causes me problems I don't have in Gmail. Yahoo seems pretty good, but I'm happy with Gmail.
My own domain.
On an apple site and you didn't include iCloud
I use iCloud for most of my email needs and I have my own domain for those that don't want to use my iCloud account
I use both gmail and outlook.com for my email.
Where's the option for "more than one"?
yahoo and gmail.. and outlook
I've used the following services through the years:
.mac (now iCloud)
Several of my own domain names
Currently, my primary email is @mac.com, now @iCloud.com for new users.
Gmail...I'm a very simple man.
My primary email account is through Yahoo, have had it since their beginning in 1997, but I manage it via a gmail account (everything automatically pulled in). I only keep the Yahoo account because I've had it for so long and prefer to have my actual name in my user ID--wasn't available via Gmail.
I used to use Gmail but I got sick of their incompatible iMAP BS in all the email clients I've used.
So, I switched to Fastmail and it does exactly what I want. It's very fast, no ads, great web interface, has power user features that's better than Gmail and so on.
I use an old Yahoo email for newsletters/sign ups/potential spammers.
I have an outlook.com email address solely due to being able to lock up my first initial last name, but I don't regularly use it and currently just forward to my gmail account.
I voted other.
I've used Outlook.com ever since it launched. I was able to get a variation of my name (which is very common) so I started using it. I prefer it to Gmail anyway when I have to go to the Web interface, but I don't do that too often anymore.
Don't use the web interface too often anymore? Is it just me or is the web version of email the 'future' of things?
Webmail, as in via a browser? Only for POP accounts (most of my mail is through POP accounts) when I'm not at home and need to check incoming mail. Two work Outlook accounts, but I don't use their web interfaces. Gmail and iCloud accounts which I don't use at all. Basically I like to use Mail.app and only from one system.
