    What are people using for gmail alternates for their personal mail?

    - Don't like how the big g has access to my personal communications
    - Don't like how outlook saves everything in one big PST folder that I keep managing to screw up / corrupt

    suggestions?

    Yahoo isn't bad either and they give you a large inbox.

    hotmail is the best alternative i use.

    hotmail is especially useful when you're creating multiple youtube accounts, etc.

    I agree... +1 for GMX. Yahoo is good too. I found Hotmail frustrating. There's also Mail and AOL.

    My personal order of preference is GMX, Yahoo, Mail, AOL then Hotmail.

    Even hotmail inserts hours of latency for forwarded emails to another account.
    You may not get forwarded emails in time.:eek:

    yahoo was my first email account (if i'm not mistaken at that time gmail didn't even exist), now i'm using yahoo and gmail simultaneously

    all gmail incoming emails is being forwarded to my yahoo, i wouldn't feel safe to rely on only one provider

    i almost never give out my yahoo to anyone, however i prefer gmail by now

    i'd never suggest to use hotmail for a personal address to anybody, i just don't like it for some reason (it's ok to use it for bh purposes like classifieds posting), i'm using an old yahoo account for my msn lol, this shows pretty well how much i don't like hotmail

    btw what you're doing with gmail & outlook (creating backup), it's a wise thing to do
