    Re: Features - QOTW: Email - how do you get yours?

    I'm pretty much soley Thunderbird IMAP for my 4 main accounts (mix of work and personal). Never touched Gmail and haven't used Hotmail for many years but Outlook.com has definitely piqued my interest! If they go down this route with the latest Outlook client I may have to buy back into Office...

    Re: Features - QOTW: Email - how do you get yours?

    I mainly use Gmail and I prefer to read my mail in a browser, although sometimes I use Thunderbird.
    Also if I'm not at home I occasionally read mail on my smartphone.

    Re: Features - QOTW: Email - how do you get yours?

    I use Yahoo mail, Hotmail and Gmail. I was once a Hotmail fan but went over to Gmail for their features like Google docs and Google reader. i also like the built in Google voice with text and chat function. I only started looking at outlook and have no opinion yet. I hate software clients and dont use a phone for my email.

    Thunderbird and ISP based POP3 email accounts... does everything we need...

    Got a gmail account just because bought an Android Tablet and had to register with Google Play (sounds like a sex lube brand!)... Never used it for email though and probably never will...

    use the bethere web mail .. get it anywhere .. nuff said ..
    What does it matter now if men believe or no?
    What is to come will come. And soon you too will stand aside,
    To murmur in pity that my words were true

    Re: Features - QOTW: Email - how do you get yours?

    I've migrated from Yahoo to Gmail in the past year and now that Microsoft have improved their mail significantly with Outlook.com it is tempting, if nothing else I am happy to be able to migrate my old hotmail account to a new outlook.com address.

    I laughed at friends with multiple email addresses but now I am the same if not worse; a good pruning is in order.
