Yahoo Versus Gmail?


My email address contains my (now old) last name.  I think it's probably time to switch over my email address.  

Ever since my Hotmail account was hacked in 2004, I have been using Yahoo.  Some girlfriends recently told me that I should consider switching to Gmail. 

Thoughts, feedback?  Do you have a preference?  What are the benefits of Gmail over Yahoo?  Help, bloggie friends!

  2. Gmail. I absolutely love it--the gchat feature is amazing, I also love how easy it is to label and organize email. I've used yahoo and hotmail...but I'm gmail all the way :)
    And as a side note--most doctors/lawyers/etc that I've interacted with because of law school (or my dating life--doctors that is) are gmail junkies as well!!!

    ps--LOVE your rehersal dinner post. so pretty!

  5. Gmail rocks! It integrates well with everything and I love how it connects with blogger and my reader, has gchat, and if you have an iphone there's even a nifty gadget called latitude that I love. Won't lie, the transition will be interesting, as it's different from hotmail and yahoo, but it's quite intuitive as you learn! Good luck :)

  9. i kept my yahoo to use for spam (like when you have to sign up for something online and give your email) and started a gmail. BUT i kept my original email (which was gmail and contained my last name) after i got married, i just went in to the settings and changed my name (how it shows up when someone gets an email from me) to show up as my married name. that way i didnt have to start all over with a new email, etc. but i definitely recommend gmail all the way - no spam!
