Default Who has what when using web based email?

I've had it with Hotmail. They always seem to have the "Server is too busy" error message and it's getting more and more frequent.

How many of you guys use Hotmail anyways? I'll bet Hotmail is the most commonly used email service in the WORLD and Microsoft better compensate for that or they're going to have a lot of angry users.

Default Re: Who has what when using web based email?

I've limit the poll to just two since I want to get an idea which one is most popular and these two have been around for a long, long time. Hotmail's been getting a lot of hits in performance. All morning long, this is what I have to face:

"Windows Live Hotmail wasn't able to complete this request because your account is temporarily unavailable. Please try again later."

So what else is new? Terrible.

I use Gmail and Yahoo mail. Both are great, I like Gmail better because it has more features and can be accessed through Thunderbird.

Well since Roadrunner bought out Adelphia, my e-mail address is switching. Since I have to update my e-mail for everything anyway, I'm gonna switch to GMail soon for the extra storage space and features.
