Boo: Hotmail & Yahoo Mail
The geeks know that when some says their email is firstname.lastname@example.org they cringe and think to themselves this person is stuck back in the 1990’s Microsoft Box.
As you will see below from http://www.webanalyticsworld.net hotmail has lost.
People are dumping hotmail for gmail in massive moves.
One reason is when Hotmail blocks, what it thinks to be a bad attachment for you, it is impossible to open that attachment.
I must admit I am and never have been an Internet Explorer user. Back in the 1990’s I used Netscape and got stuck with Windows Outlook email until web mail came along. In 1997 Microsoft offered Hotmail as a free online email service.
Yes, I did use Hotmail back in the late 90’s but soon switched. I began trying out every email program “out there” and finally landed on Googles free: gmail and have not looked back.
Check out the ratings of Yahoo, Hotmail, and gmail and you see gmail the clear winner:
Now this is real news:
“Overall we prefer Gmail over all other webmail applications because performance (speed) is consistently fast, and emails can be tagged making search much more effective. They also offer more storage and other features, and it’s free.”
And if you need more:
“However, Yahoo and Live Hotmail offer more mainstream Outlook-like user interfaces (although Live Hotmail does not allow you to access other email accounts from their application), whereas Gmail takes some time to get used to. If you are looking for speed and tagging is important, Gmail is for you. If you are looking for the closest thing to Outlook online, go with Yahoo Mail. “
