Hello Pit.

I've seen plenty of threads here about browsers (UG's where I heard about Firefox) but don't recall anything on email/webmail. So... what do you use/which is the best/why?

Hotmail. I do have a Gmail account and an AOL account that never get used. just because hotmails linked in with MSN so i know when i've got emails.

In college i have my account in Outlook. which is alright.

Hotmail because I can use it with MSN messenger

Gmail because it's got a big storage and some other perks

Gmail, no ****ing question.

It's just better in every single way.

Seriously.

"Every single way" means that it has:

Search function for your emails, it puts emails with the same subject together (easier to keep track of conversations, as well as all reply emails from UG going into one, much easier to keep track of) it auto refreshes, has more space, has a chat function, sent mails are automatically saved...

Seriously, I'm just going to ****ing invite you.

Hotmail (jeremyklaver@hotmail.com) and gmail (jeremy.klaver@gmail.com). Hotmail for friendly email and spam and anything minor, and gmail for more important stuff (registering for some websites, job stuff, school stuff, etc.).

Gmail, without a doubt.

If you want to store things locally (e.g. not use a web based email), then use Thunderbird (made by the same folks as Firefox). Gmail is pop friendly, so you can download you message to your machine if you really want to.

Gmail easily. Fuck hotmail, it gave me this stupid message saying that if I didn't check in every so often, I would lose my account. Once again, fuck hotmail. Besides, gmail is like, guh-mail (not gee-mail). I think about that when I'm in the car, oh it puts my mind at ease.

True, true and true.

Gmail is better.
And for all you people saying you use hotmail because of MSN, you do know you can use Gmail with MSN right?
And if you want to be notified of your emails like MSN does, just get the GMail Notifier...

I can't think of a single way that hotmail is better.

So UG isn't important?

I use G-mail for almost everything, because it's much more friendly to use.

I use hotmail because I'm too lazy to switch my contacts to a new e-mail or register my Gmail as a passport.

I use my school e-mail to send stuff back and forth to myself at school, as hotmail and Gmail are blocked.

Gmail.


I've even got my mother switched to it because her work account doesn't have enough space

and they have their own server and everything
