    E-mails

    There is nothing I hate than having more than one e-mail account (I currently have 4 and have to check two of them daily.)

    I was happy with mainly using my hotmail account because MSN is more popular and what not.

    However, as of late, I am noticing that some e-mails take hours to be delivered/received. It happened to me once in a critical time too, we had a paper to submit to a journal the following morning, and around midnight, hotmail just wouldn't send/receive e-mails instantly like it used to (e-mails were small and without attachement.)

    So I started using Gmail after that, and it looked fine. I really want to just have one major e-mail account, and I want to use Gmail from now on.

    To those who use Gmail regularly, is it reliable? Do you tend to receive e-mails instantly or they get delayed at times? Do you prefer it to Hotmail?

    Any Feedback is appreciated!

    I have like 6 or 7 email accounts, but I only check my school account and gmail regularly.

    I use my school account most of the time, because it's the most reliable one. However, when I need to transfer big files or when I don't feel comfortable giving out my school account, I use gmail. I have used hotmail and yahoo before too, but I haven't touched them since I have a gmail account.

    Now I send/receive emails about twice a week on my gmail account. I've never experienced any delay.

    Yeah, I'd like to use the school's account, but the interface is weird and there are many things that you could do with hotmail/gmail that you can't do with the school's one. It is rarely (but happened) that it's down with the entire school's system for whatever reason.

    Besides, I think some school will close your account once you are done, and give you another alumni account.

    I think many schools offer you to configure your Outlook/Netscape/whatever email program. I'm using Netscape and it's very convenient. It can also store my username and password so I don't have to log in every time.

    You are right, they will close my account when I graduate, but when I leave school I probably won't contact 95% of the people I'm emailing now.

    I have an account in Yahoo, but I rarely use it. I am mainly interested in how good gmail is I guess.

    Hamed, I think gmail's a good one ... not sure though, if you are to compare that with hotmail.

    i only have one and I also uses that to my msn account as well.

    but it's not hotmail but a danish mail service called ofir. it ain't great but I really don't want to get a new one, it's so complicated to tell people that you have got a new E-mail address.

    I also only got one email. There are no reason to have more than one for me. And like you say "it's so complicated tell people that you have got a new E-mail address"
    I'm crushed, Black and Blue, but you know I'd do it all again for you.

    Gmail is the absolute best, Hamed. Never settle for anything else.

    I've sent a Gmail invite to your inbox. Enjoy!

    I think Yahoo Mail is the best, they're also about to upgrade it and make it look more like Outlook express.

    I think Gmail works fine but it's surely different, with the way it saves msg as 'conversations' and so on. It depends on how you use your account I guess.
