Re: What email service do you use?

Primary is yahoo.com along with "privacy badger" to cut down on third party adverts. I let the yahoo.com adverts through.

Secondary is gmail. I receive stuff on it, and rarely send from it as I don't like the Google tracking.

Re: What email service do you use?

I use the email service from my ISP (Comcast). It's part of the service I'm already paying for, might as well use it.

I don't use Comcast's webmail application, though, since I despise webmail in general. Instead I wrote a Java program to grab the mail from the Comcast IMAP server and store it locally on my machine in mbox format. I then read the mail in Alpine, and I can send mail in Alpine as well, via Comcast's SMTP server, since Alpine has built-in support for SMTP server authentication. I actually could use Alpine to connect directly to Comcast's IMAP server for reading mail, but I prefer to not have active connections open like that (which can be slow sometimes). It's much faster reading them locally.

Re: What email service do you use?

I use godaddy to host my own domain mail servers. Reasonably priced, up to 10 domains IIRC. Has worked fine for the last few years, prior to that I ran my own mail servers but that became a PITA. Godaddy uses MS Exchange Server, I think.

I also have gmail and yahoo mail, oh, and aol mail, but seldom use any of these.

Re: What email service do you use?

I mainly use Outlook but it's painfully slow. For that reason, I have my own email service which I pay a web host for. I only have 1gb of space in total but 10gb of bandwidth so I manage it really well and it is very nice to have a proper email service! No ads, no slow rendering.

Re: What email service do you use?

I use a couple via IMAP, never webmail interfaces. I get what you all mean about IMAP being a little slow at times but if you leave the email client running as a background process and synchronising at an interval of your choice it negates the message access speed issue without having to setup alpine or use a paid web host.

Re: What email service do you use?

I use Comcast mail and read/send with Thunderbird. I also have Gmail and have it auto forwarded to my Comcast mail, I don't send from Gmail. I've had a Yahoo mail account since it existed but rarely use it.

I use Kshowmail as a mail checker, it's old and not available anymore, but you can manually install the files from the old RPM and it still works. I like it because you can preview mail and even delete mail from the server with it. You can also blacklist addresses for auto-deletion.

Re: What email service do you use?

I use Protonmail.

I started out with Tutanota and Protonmail, testing which one felt right. Both are pretty good, but Protonmail has become really good the last year. Very happy with their service. I've also started using their VPN.

Re: What email service do you use?

Well, I have a few email accounts that I use for different things.

Most of the public stuff except when I think it will lead to lots of spam, I have an old (I mean old) MSN account that I got way back on one of my first dial-up accounts. It's still active, even though I haven't used MSN for 20 years

My important/personal email that only a few people have the address for is with my current ISP. Included with internet access...

My other accounts, I use as "throwaway" accounts that I don't care if they get spammed or not. once the spam gets heavy, I delete the account and set up a new one. Those I use gmail or MS hotmail/outlook Let them get hit with all the spam crap.

Re: What email service do you use?

Gmail hosts my two domains and I really like their web interface. I used to use Thunderbird when I hosted my own Qmail servers, but that was years ago.

Re: What email service do you use?

My experience with gmail has been flakey and frustrating. As long as I accessed my gmail accounts from my main current computer in this city, all was fine, but when I tried to access my gmail account on a trip to New Zealand, I was locked out of my account. To verify myself, it asked me the date that I had opened that gmail account, which was quite out of my memory range, and then wouldn't open. When I accessed the gmail account with a different operating system from this city, it was fine and emailed me to that effect but allowed access to the account. When I tried to access the account from a city in a different state using the same operating system, I had the same verification issues as before and was denied access to the account. There appeared to be some geographical issue. This sort of unreliability encouraged me to pay for a private email address from an email provider (fastmail.com) and since then no such problems have arisen.
