    I have Windows 98 and dial up. I have asked a few friends and have gotten a variety of suggestions. Things are centering around, Gmail, Yahoo Mail, and Hotmail as the best. I will soon be ditching Earthlink!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I use hotmail mostly because its convinient in my opinion. It has 250mb of storage. It is also very user friendly with all the buttons being clear and visable. Gmail is my second option, but not really user friendly. I guess it gets better if you use it more often. The unlimited storage space for Gmail is tantalizeing, but you'll probably never use it. I don't know about yahoo, I tend to stay away from yahoo products just becuase I don't like it. Zongyi

    Email does not work! Use PM or yangzongyi@hotmail.com instead.

    I like gmail because it stores conversations as threads, not as individual emails scattered in your in-box.

    I use three email addresses:

    1) A hotmail address for registering things. I know it will get spam, but don't care because this is all I use it for.

    2) A gmail address for private correspondence ONLY, and

    3) A work email address for business.

    I'd recommend doing multiple mailboxes like Capslock here says. Gmail is pretty good by my understanding. I use the boxes provided by my ISP (Comcast) and my school, because with them I can at least get support when I need it, and they have POP service so I can use an email client on my computer and not have to deal with their web interface. I used to have some Yahoo addresses I used for junk mail, but I'm always having to make new ones because I forget the passwords.
    BTW, would somebody mind shooting me a gmail invite? A friend was supposed to send me one but he's a total flake. :) I think my email addy is public in my profile, but if it isn't I'm seedjar@comcast.net, as if you folks couldn't figure that out. ;)

    Earthlink email & web access & newsgroups (through my Sprint DSL ISP) & Gmail.

    I agree with the others who recommend multiple accts. Although it takes some getting used to, Google seems to have done a good job with their Gmail.

    Seedjar - sent you an invite.
    All the best,

    I use gmail exclusively for my personal use, and hotmail & yahoo accounts for subscriptions, online purchases, etc.
