Default Hotmail>Gmail

Well, I've been using Hotmail for several years now and I'm moving on to Gmail. Why? Hotmail isn't fully supported on my iPhone. To view my Hotmail mail, I have to use an app called M-Box Mail. I got tired of using it and wanted my email to come straight to my phone. Since the iPhone supports Gmail, I'm going to start using that.

Okay? I don't understand why you'll kill off an email you've been using for several years just because your phone doesn't support it.

Whatever works. More power to you.

Hmm... I can see why. I have a number of email accounts. One of them are for everything, one of them are for select websites and any real person, and one of them is only for people I know. Works for me!

It could sound stupid, but I kind of like Gmail. I'm starting to not like Microsoft anymore...hopefully that will change when Windows 7 comes out.

I used to use Hotmail but switched to Gmail last year. Mainly because they support outlook syncing without paying for it. I never tried to sync my hotmail account to my Iphone. Just my Gmail account and that was a breeze.

+1 for Gmail!

Wow..Gmail is sooo much faster, but it's interface is SOOO boring. Are there different themes I can choose from?

Just sync it with Microsoft Outlook. Setup a Pop account through Gmail and your good to go.

I don't care for Outlook. I don't get that many emails...90% of mine are automatic forum emails. Most of them I just delete.
