hotmail, gmail, yahoo
... not much REAL difference - they all send & recieve emails ( job done )
besides google already know what I search for and what I watch on youtube ( when logged in) why give them moar info?
Hey the client works faster when deleting E-mails, plus I've got a nice folder set up. If it ain't broke, don't fix it.
I rarely use hotmail except for MSN Messenger and my XBOX LIVE account. I've had my account compromised quite a few times. I've never had that happen with any other E-mail service. Well, I've had some trouble with Yahoo, but not to the same extent, at all.
I've never liked Gmail's setup. Still don't. Maybe I never invested enough time into it, but I don't think I should bother because I'm happy w/ what I use now.
gmail deleted my pictures and videos and voice recordings of a loved one that died in '06
in all it was about a GB worth in emails along with a duplicate log of the yahoo IM chats we used to have.
as far as i am concerned i am glad i forwarded a fraction of them to my yahoo account because that was the instant messenger we used for video & voice chat while playing games like eucher. and it was just faster to open them and reference things we said to each other every day.
i had backed up most of them to a d/l folder on a drive that crashed 3 years ago and the back ups back ups of 2 copies each of cd's and dvd's that were damaged by a storm a year later.
i lost all my favorite pictures, emails, and videos of them and am only left with the arguement stuff and problems i forwarded to my yahoo account and 32mb worth of pictures on an sd card for a digital picture frame i asked for, for x-mas the year they died.
i still have emails on my aol and yahoo from as far back as '98.
so pardon me if i haven't jumped back on the trashbining bandwagon known as gmail from that period and on.
aol quit doing those practices before gmail was ever a thought.
