I used to have a gmail account. [/bragging]I had one when you had to be invited to it by a friend in order to get one. [bragging]

But I stopped using it because I'm already too used to Yahoo. I don't know if my account if still there or not, but I doubt it.

i use a gmail account regularly. it's perfectly functional.

also, you can't have an 'outlook' account -- outlook is just a mail client.

Chances are, you're account will still be there. I didn't log on for a long time, and decided to see if it were still around, and it was.

I've had it for a year or two now, its really good.
I don't use the web interface for retrieving my mail though. Mozilla Thunderbird ftw.

I have I think 5 email accounts. I have hotmail, gmail, one through my home university, one through my university here, and a yahoo one that I use when I don't want to give my real email. I use my gmail and my home university ones the most and for private emails. Hotmail is for my mom and junk mail (I'm a horrible daughter), and my university email here is only for things related to school here.

i also have various accounts. I have 2 in mail.com: one, for personal use (friends, family), another one for designer job. I have another for junk mail, and I have a gmail account for contact with my students. Sometimes they have to send me files as homework and they tend to be big, so I ask them to send them to gmail, that way i won't have trouble with max capacity.

Gmail, its Gangsta Mail. I use it because Yahoo still fails to filter all my spam to an annoying point.

English isn't Sanni's first language, either. leaving out the word "you" is not related to it not being a first language. Nor is using "was" instead of "has". Those are just dumb typos.

Maleficent, I get your point but dan_the_man's mistakes seem to be stemming from lazy typing instead of English being his 2nd language.

Wow - this is a super boring thread

Who really cares who has gmail, hotmail , yahoo mail or whatever??? They are all fucking free! It is not as though, it is an exclusive club or anything that only wankers from Texas can join!

The only ones of those I had/have are yahoo and hotmail. Both are awful. Gmail is better, but I really am partial mostly to my university email. I can keep it as long as I don't leave it unchecked for over 2 months, I think. So it's definitely my favorite.

I've tried a bajillion different e-mails, and Gmail is the only one that's even halfway decent. Fortunately, "halfway decent" is "fucking awesome" in this case. I love it/recommend it.

Currently, I use...

2 Gmail accounts (1 is my main email, the other is if I don't want to give out a real or identifying email address)
1 university account (for school related stuff)
1 work account (through our store's website, to be used for updating the website, wine news, and store communications)

yup. I like gmail the best. My university email is too slow. And the store email is, well...lame. sam@insertliquorstorename.com.....pshhhh.

I don't use Gmail. What's so great about it? I may consider getting one.

Also, what's so bad about Hotmail?

hotmail's junk filter blows. And it's messy and ugly. Most of the page is taken up by ads. Gmail looks a hell of a lot nicer. Oh, and sometimes hotmail puts stuff in my junk box that normally goes in my inbox, and vice versa. It's just shit.

I have a hotmail, gmail, and university email.

I generally use hotmail, but I do regularly use my gmail. My university email is pretty much unused.

My university email is the fastest, has the most options, no ads, no junk, and it allows unlimited file transfer. We also have 4 different versions of it so you can choose which one you like best, and it's the most organizable.

I've had a gmail account for well over 2years now and I find it very easy to use, it's even accessible on my mobile. I like the archiving and search feature and it has a very simple to use google-esque layout. Also I love all the extra features a google account offers, including bloggers and tracking services.

I've got just under a hundred invites left to gmail, so if you want one just pm me your email address and I'll give you one.

Gmail is my primary e-mail account.

Gmail offers more than 2GB of free mail storage, not to mention its security and anti-spam options are much better than other accounts. Gmail is really a way to go!!

I have 2 Gmail accounts, an account for my website, and work email.

This has turned more into a 'who has email' thread.

gaahh!
I hate it when I cant access what I want to check. It makes me go insane! And I was just about to finally reply to my emails, too.

I never open the page unless I have to write an email... which is rare since I don't use gmail a lot. But I use the plugin for firefox that checks your email in the bottom right corner of the browser. Love it.

Gah, mine is still down!

I think Per used to have that plug in, and it wasn't always up to date. Or maybe that was just because he always had 208298750927590 unread mails.
