I'm curious. What kind of email accounts do you commoners use? I'm a Gmail man myself. In fact, if anyone wants a Gmail account I have an assload of invites up for grabs.

EDIT: Please only vote for the ones that you actually use and don't just have lying around, or only have for IM services.

My Dad said he was gonna send me a Gmail invite ages ago. But he hasn't yet. :(

Anyway, I've got a hotmail and a Yahoo email account.

Devil Man has a G-Mail Account, You Handsome Bearded Viking You.

And it was none other than Roto13 who sorted it out for me to have a G-Mail account. Thank you, O' Great One :bow:

Devil Man has 50 Invites Available.

If you want one, PM me with your e-mail address. Devil Man doesn't do PM chats with anyone so one PM with e-mail address gets you your own G-Mail account.

If you dont want one, tough! :mad2:

I use Hotmail mostly, but Yahoo for signing up for crap, as I don't want my real mail getting fluttered with Spam

12-02-2006, 04:59 PM
I have 2 or 3 yahoo accounts that I use for nonsense like forums.

I have 2 serious gmail accounts and one goofy gmail account.

I have a school account for classes.

I manage a business account, which isn't excatly mine, and I have an ISP account which I never ever use.

Sadly, I never got hotmail or AOL, and I don't know what Snail mail is.

I have about 7 Yahoo accounts that i use for forums and stuff.
One Hotmail which is the main one I use for chatting.
I am not interested in getting any more accounts of any type, I am messed up enough.

12-02-2006, 05:21 PM

Hotmail, Yahoo and AIM. I do not use my AIM e-mail though, not often at least. I also have my e-mail from my uni which I use often. That and Hotmail are used the most by me.

12-02-2006, 05:53 PM
Mostly Hotmail, but I also use gmail as well as my ISP account for non-spam stuff.

12-02-2006, 05:54 PM
Gmail ftw.

I have a Hotmail which I use, and a GMail which I used to use a lot, but not so much anymore.

12-02-2006, 06:09 PM
I use Gmail, and I have messages from my old hotmail account and my UGA (school) account forwarded to it. By the way, if you have a cell phone, you can get a free invitation code to Gmail on its website. You don't need invitations from people any more, though I suppose that's still slightly easier. :p

12-02-2006, 06:09 PM
Hotmail and gmail are the two that I use. gmail is more for personal use, and hotmail is mostly online peoples

12-02-2006, 06:12 PM
Hotmail, would consider Snail mail :)

12-02-2006, 06:24 PM
I use my school email account, it's just easier.

12-02-2006, 06:26 PM
I use Hotmail. Works for me.

12-02-2006, 08:36 PM
I use hotmail, AOL and verizon for email.

12-02-2006, 08:38 PM
Hotmail, 'coz i'm a hot male. :D ;)

12-02-2006, 08:39 PM
I use gmail as my primary email. I also use my school's email when my professors require they send assignments to school email addresses only. I also have a couple of addresses set up on my server space, but I never use them.

12-02-2006, 08:41 PM

12-02-2006, 08:42 PM
I use Mozilla ThunderBird ! and i use my school address as a middle man for ....... my Buisness in Selling ...... Goods..... :shifty:

12-02-2006, 08:47 PM
I use my gmail and my work email.

12-02-2006, 08:48 PM
Hotmail (4 accounts), Gmail (1 account) and Sapo (one)

12-02-2006, 08:50 PM
I use the one that gets a lot of spam, i.e. Hotmail. :p In addition to that, I also use the university's e-mail.

12-02-2006, 08:53 PM
I use a combination of Gmail, Hotmail, and Orange.

12-02-2006, 09:39 PM
I have no idea why people use Hotmail. I really don't. It's unreliable, it's slow, it's limiting, it's just a really terrible client. When I switched to Gmail I was like "Wow, is this even possible? I thought web based email accounts had to suck!"

12-02-2006, 10:20 PM
I use AOL and Hotmail. I tend to use the AOL account more, but the hotmail account is still used regularly. I also have a Yahoo account, but I never use it. Ever.

12-02-2006, 10:30 PM
Hotmail cause its the one I've been using for two years.

12-02-2006, 11:36 PM
Yahoo, and MSN, GMail is awsume, and aol sucks XD

12-02-2006, 11:41 PM
Gmail and my @expectnomore.net one.

I use the latter for more professional-type things and the former for random registrations.

12-02-2006, 11:50 PM
I use SquirrelMail as a client.

12-02-2006, 11:55 PM
I have hotmail, and I use it for LJ notifications, warned posts and a norwegian game exchange club. Hey, remember the time when humans sent mails?

12-03-2006, 02:26 AM
I use Yahoo for random homework stuff, Gmail for storage stuff, and hotmail for personal use. xD

I use my own server space. I don't see ads. I have unlimited space. (Well only 35GB on my server.) I don't have a maximum email size. I have unlimited different email addresses at my domain. I have POP3 and IMAP. I can use many kinds of webmail interfaces. I can run spamassassin or any other filtering tool I need. I don't have to worry about my host changing something in a bad way, because I am the host.

The nice thing about having your own domain is you can forward all email to your domain to a single email address. So you can just make crap up. "blarg@mydomain.net" or "amazon_com_dont_spam_me@mydomain.net" etc. and it all comes to you. Then you can give everyone a different email address. And if that address starts being spammed, you know who did it.

Only bad thing is you have to pay for a host.

[Email Client] (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/E-mail_client)

Just to be clear, folks.

12-03-2006, 04:41 AM
i have several of them, mostly with hotmail. all i ever use is my main hotmail account, and one provided by AIM.

12-03-2006, 05:37 AM
Yahoo, Hotmail and Snail Mail.

12-03-2006, 05:43 AM
Oh Hotmail all the way.

12-03-2006, 05:50 AM
I use my work email account for work, my uni email account for university stuff and my domain for personal use. I get a free domain because I work for my ISP, which is cool.

12-03-2006, 05:54 AM
I get stuff like xanga subscriptions through my hotmail, spam subscriptions through my gmail (also stu's mom emails me through this) and for general usage I use my ISP account, but its spam filters are suck, so I try not to whore it out.

I forget I have an AOL or Y!M mail account until for some reason I get an email at one of them an dtrillian pops up all cheerful "LOL YOU GOT MAILZ"

That's exactly what happens to me.

12-03-2006, 07:55 AM
I have one gmail account, one hotmail account, and one "other" account that I mainly use. Various other hotmail and yahoo accounts that I use for email fodder when I need a useless email.

The "other" is my family's ISP that I still use even though I am not in that house. Or state.

12-03-2006, 08:02 AM
I have two emails with my ISP and one hotmail - which I only have for MSN usage.

12-03-2006, 09:24 AM
I only have two email addresses that I still use, both hotmail. :cool:

12-03-2006, 10:26 AM
I have a bunch of different emails but most of them I have it setup so that it forwards the stuff to my Gmail account. That way I have everything centralized. Neat.

12-03-2006, 10:28 AM
I uses Hotmail for forums and other non-personal stuffs and Yahoo for personal and more important stuffs. :bigsmile:

I have a Gmail I use occassionally, as well as a Yahoo. But I've mainly started using the one my college gave me - through Thunderbird. It's quite nifty, and I don't think I could change now.

Hotmail, Comany's Server, and my ISP server.
