- I like shtrudel mail. First, there is no problem to find your own name as your email address. Second, you can have more than one email addresses for your mail box. Anyway, the user interface is very user friendly, and there are 4 supported languages. Good service.

- Ever try to send an attachment with gmail? A jpg or two? Most of the time they got lost in transit. And don't even get me started about conversation threading garbage - just turn it off, it's broken! At least Gmail is up most of the time, unlike Lycos Zimbra where the servers are down 20% of the time and pathetically slow the remainder but still… if my attachments are being stolen by Gmail and not delivered, it makes me wonder… where did they go, who has them, and what ARE they doing with my photos? Creepy!

Gmail best? April fools!
- Sorry, but Gmail is lacking one important feature - the option to turn off conversation threading. Conversations are a "bug" that need to be exterminated. They have "eaten" important e-mails, caused them to get lost or buried inside the wrong threads from different senders. Makes "reply all" a nightmare. Worse yet is when you're not notified of an incoming mail. I want to be able to see my incoming mails. I want to be able to decide which mails are relevant and related. Ugh! Recent changes to Hotmail make it incompatible with any browser except IE and sometimes Firefox 3.6, forget about using Chrome, Safari, Opera or more obscure browsers and Lycos's Zimbra is absolute garbage. The only mail service that has been relatively safe and stable over the years is Yahoo, but lately Yahoo's social networking features are a turn off. Most people don't use that junk, they just want email. Especially if they are connecting from work.

Privacyharbour is a Con
- Keeps asking free users to select images when signing up… keeps repeating. Did it for an hour.

Use Gmail but Tired of Google's Politics
- I've used Gmail just about since it first became available and overall have been satisfied. However, as Google grows into such a global, all powerful conglomerate and is throwing so much support in directions I disagree with, I'm beginning to think it's time to move on. I'm reading the comments and think I've decided to move over to Mail.com. Time will tell.

- Currently using Gmail. I also have been and still am working in IT for many, many years (programming, systems, Administration). Looking to go away from Gmail - They contribute to political campaigns, and I feel that should only be individuals not businesses that do so. Likewise so do Microsoft and Yahoo.

Want Something Newer…
- I switched from Yahoo since they are doing all those changes, and [allow] too much spam! Went to Hotmail and could not figure out how to get to my contacts to forward my mail. Then to Gmail and had the same problem. I am use to drop down contacts list which one thing I liked about, but it is a mess now. I just want something newer.

Gmail seems to be the best…
- …, but in order to even login you have to give them your mobile number or have them call your HOUSE so they can give you a login code. I see that as a disappointment that I cannot even sign up because I cannot afford a mobile device, and I certainly wouldn't give my home number out over the internet.

Windows Live is the Best!
- Windows Live or Hotmail is the best because it is like having your own computer, social network, and online storage, and email all in one for FREE!

Turning away from Hotmail
- I've been using Hotmail for the past couple of years, but I am getting really sick of it. The spam is unbearable, and I'm just wanting a change. I'm considering Gmail or FastMail.

- How about Gmail? It deserves the top one. It's the best I ever came across.

AOL, Gmail, Yahoo! and Hotmail
- I had AOL for years and love it, but now it is a pain. They were the best with dial up, but now the wold has pass them by. Gmail is a Joke and Yahoo download is great but this signing on every two weeks is a joke, and it's a pain if you have 2 addresses. Hotmail also is a joke — try getting help.

Saying No to Yahoo
- I would sway away from Yahoo… Since the new updates… nothing but slow, it's like watching grass grow trying to send mail… Poor online help, up to 48 hrs for a return email from them…

Hushmail should be illegal
- Bad idea. I lost everything because I didn't log in within the three weeks as required. I was notified I had to upgrade for a fee to regain access.
