Tired of ads.
- Is there an email provider not putting garbage (food-meat-fish) in a vegetarian's face. And alcohol in a non-drinker of this stuff in my face? Male and female slobbering over each other in my face? I am sick of the garbage and madness in my face every time I try to email someone. I worked in an office for decades. Not one picture. Just a calendar. Very sober. Why not email providers. I[f] they need to advertise[,] how about a fountain pen or something conservative instead of the disgusting junk?

Hotmail is fabulous
- Hotmail is the best e mail address so far not compared to any other.

Best free email service - Google - Phone
- Gmail of course market share is a good indicator of who is doing things right. Question or point. Do they all offer free 48 state calling? I have really enjoy being able to return emails as well as calls from Google. Also competitive rates every where else.

Zoho is a go!
- I stopped using Hotmail and Gmail after tiring of relentless spam and inconveniences. Still use Yahoo and started using Zoho after stumbling onto it last year—very pleased with options and spam filter.

Yahoo and Hotmail
- I had Hotmail until they labeled me a spammer. I do have 36 in my address book, and then they started limiting my outgoing mail. I switched to Yahoo and they are even worse. Sometimes I cannot send emails for 2-3 days (both services did this).

Gmail: I get TONS of spam
- I really want to get away from Gmail… I get TONS of spam in that account. I don't see on here that anyone else does… makes me wonder why

Left Yahoo, Gmail, GMX. Now on Zoho
- I like Yahoo Mail a lot—the interface just seems very easy to work with. However, I was interested in alternatives. First, I tried (years ago) Gmail, but could never really fall in love with it—I found a lack of folders to be an unsurmountable obstacle. Then, I found GMX, which at first seemed pretty cool. However, the interface needs a *lot* of improvement (example: folder display sort column is taken from your last visit to that folder, which may have been by sender (for example), which is something you usually do only once and upon next visit would expect the normal sorting (by date) to be restored—not so with GMX). There are dozens of other annoying examples of this type. But worst of all, GMX mail has at times been rejected by MSN and by Comcast (& possibly others) due to GMX being a suspected source of mass spamming. Right now, I'm trying Zoho and, so far, very very pleased!

No more MSN
- My account has been hijacked. Lost all e-mails and hundreds of addresses. Can't even get ahold of MSN. Friends all mad because of the scam I was mugged overseas, etc. that I didn't send! None of these servers are worth a hoot from what I'm reading! And MSN is at the top of that list for me!

Have used Yahoo for Over 10 Years
- Put up with the ads as a necessary evil but have never been satisfied with inbox management, too hard to clean out.

Gmail, Yahoo, Hotmail, AOL, Opera
- I have all of the above, but I've never seen a compelling reason for using Hotmail (which I use as my spam box); it seems approximately equivalent to (if more flashy than) the solutions from AOL and Opera. They don't automatically forward, they're stuck with the "folder" metaphor that Gmail has taught me is archaic, and I don't recall anything resembling filters. Yahoo has one thing going for them: the fake email addresses. They'll let you make a temporary address that is invisibly tied to your main inbox, so you can publish it and later delete it if it gets spammy (or you otherwise don't want to be available to the recipient of that address any longer). Otherwise it was the same experience as the others. Additionally, Hotmail and Yahoo always seemed clunky (running on Linux anyway). I remember a short time when Hotmail even limited access to Internet Explorer users... I guess they got burned by that policy. As I recall, Gmail is the only one of these that frees your messages.

Gmail Alternative - Zoho
- I was using Gmail, but tired of the privacy issues. When searching for a usable alternative, I found Zoho. Zoho Mail is so good that I moved my organizations email with them (domain address). I have added my Gmail as POP there and use only Zoho to check all my mails. I have also informed people of my change still some people send to Gmail , but I receive it in Zoho. Also they support IMAP, so I can check my work mail in iPhone when I travel. They support attachment viewing in Zoho Writer/ Show which I use for business presentations and documents. Overall, a clear winner in the making.

I really miss Blue Bottle Email
- They had encryption, but stopped hosting free. Too expensive. Had to leave them…

What about Inbox.com?
- I use Inbox and Zoho. I started using Zoho when Inbox.com stopped accepting new accounts, and I needed a new business one.
- —Guest A U
- Gmail is the best because it has TONS of room AND storage so you can pick up emails, and/or put them in a separate file.
