What is your preferred email host?

My preferred email host has been Yahoo for some time. Gmail is a good email to use but it's too complicated for me to appreciate it like some people do. There's 3 sections including one for promotions and what-not. Yahoos seems to be clean cut with only one inbox area and it's easy to setup on your phone. I've stuck with them for some time.

One thing I love about ProtonMail is that you have a "display name" unlike Gmail.

Outlook (which used to be called Hotmail)... I still have my @live.co.uk one that a lot of people have not heard of, surprisingly. I also have my hotmail accounts which I think they are still allowing registrations for but Outlook is the one. Gmail is next.

I kinda hate outlook but I miss hotmail.

 

Been with gmail since 04'.

 

I can't remember how i was invited to sign up, it was a closed beta version back then.

I once read something about GMail early days, it was interesting.

I just created a Yahoo account. I hope I do not regret this! :)

When I signed up for gmail almost 2 decades ago it was also in the closed beta stage. So I'm right there with you as for going back that far. I still prefer yahoo as it's simpler as I said above.

I had a yahoo account i used to play on their chess game lounge lol

 

i just got used to gmail, maybe i could switch to a better one soon.

I have no clue how to use icloud email address stand alone since it's tied to Apple. I should probably look into it.

Yeah I totally hate the design too.. I preferred the Hotmail days due to the design being much more simpler.

I agree that Gmail can be a bit more fiddly than traditional email providers, though I've kinda got used to it.

 

I too was an original beta invitee (I'm pretty sure almost anyone who wanted a code was able to get one before it went public).

 

I like Yahoo's disposable email system.

That can kinda be done with Gmail - nerdface+1@gmail.com for example will send to nerdface@gmail.com - and if you no longer want to receive emails sent to nerdface+1 you can basically block them..

Oh, I didn't know that. I know Gmail omits the period sign (.), so it doesn't matter if you include it or not.

I have emaila ccounts for yahoo, hotmail and gmail providers so I check them usinga third party from my phone. In general I prefer Gmail because of the filter options and how being Google you can synchronize easily to the phone and other devices. I think the multi inbox could be useful but I find it a bit too much, I think it is optional anyay, so I guess it is just about fiddling with the settings to turn off the smart sorting.

 

Outlook seems to want to force things on me, like using Skype, so I am not as keen on it.

 

Yahoo I rarely check it on desktop nowadays but I am glad they didn't stay behind. It seems to load and work well.

Gmail and google are spooky because it records your voice and what you type on chats like hangouts or whatsapp to offer you ads about it..

Yeah. I have heard some instances of adverts changing to whatever they are discussing. I've seen it outside of google too. Twitter adverts seem to be about stuff I have been browsing about.

For the past 7 years of so I've primarily been using Gmail for my email and the reason is that I don't get as much spam as I did on other email sites. Yahoo was my main account for over a decade prior to my switch but the spam was getting to be too outrageous and forget about hotmail because that's all that seemed to come through was spam.

 

Now that I have a Google phone it's easier to remain with Gmail too and use the perks such as accessing my phone's photos when I'm on my laptop with ease.

I honestly prefer Roundcube from cPanel though my own personal domains. I don't like google because of how they structure everything and they forced you to make a gmail account years ago which kind of stained their product for me. I no longer like Yahoo because they make you wait 15 seconds because you have adblocker on, and any others just seem sketchy to me. So I personally stick with my own personalized webmail.

I don't really have preferred email services account, each account has its ups and downs. My first account that I set up was Yahoo 20 years ago that I begin with then sometime later in the same year I then made a Hotmail account, as we all now know it's Outlook (Thanks to Microsoft), And Outlook is my main personal account that I use 100% of the time.

 

Then got three Gmail accounts, and then when I got into Webhosting I made my own emails up :) Used Gmail to link them up :) and use them allot. I have five custom email address.

My preferred email host would definitely be Gmail. The best part is that Gmail is free and it connects me with all of the Google Services, including YouTube and Drive. The mobile app is also very user-friendly! I remember many years ago it used to be called Google Mail

Yahoo used to be my main one, though as I need a more personal email I started to use gmail since it would be a more widely accepted email.

 

My yahoo one has gone to junk in both service and from years of using it, so I've moved most of my day to day internet stuff over to outlook.
