Yahoo was my first email service... I think it's very reliable and I still use it as my primary email provider... I hope the new interface is as lighting fast as they claim it to be...

... i use yahoo. i made it way back and still use it. Its not my official e-mail mainly for subscriptions and for girls! lol.. tho very few do e-mail these days.

that said, i hope flows better than the last beta. i opted out of that so fast!


It'd be nice if they improved the performance instead of making it more ... shiny/glossy. Isn't it slow enough already?

I use it
Was my first mail address I got, and I actually quite like it
Atleast for me the SPAM protection works great
And I use this address for registering on all forums and stuff so it recieves ALLOT of SPAM ;)

I actually own a yahoo account, so I've been using pop3 too access my account via third party software for years... though occasionally I find myself checking using the web interface. It is funny to log in for the first time in a year and go "ohay, this is different." XD

There is a ton of people that signed up early to Yahoo and Hotmail accounts and still use it to this day. IMHO the difference is that the Hotmail service got increasingly worse while Yahoo remained reliable and speedy for the most part.

Gmail was a disruptive competitor and thank god for that... when Gmail launched Hotmail was still offering free 5mb accounts and Yahoo wasn't much different.


Don't forget that Yahoo mail is the default for AT&T customers, linked to through their individual front pages.
