What kind of E-mail do you use?

Well a lot of people are still using a type of email that is not suitable for them and they think that they cant change anything about it, this post is here to try and fix that problem.

First lets look at G-Mail:

G-Mail is a great E-mail browser you can do tons of things to customize your account and it really is not that hard! Using!image

When you look at a G-mail account you see all of your mail laid out in front of you which is the best part. All you have to do is log in and there you go you have all of your mail. You can customize your G-mail account to your preferences too! Change your theme over ten pre defined themes or make your own theme! G-mail is also safe it scans everything that comes into your mail so don't worry about getting infected by a virus(unless you use a Mac).  There is also a nice toolbox incase you want to help Google test out some new gadgets for G-Mail! its called Google Labs here you can find useful tools that you can add like widgets on to your G-Mail account to help you use your account better.


How about a Yahoo! account?


Yahoo is not better than G-mail but for a average person. Yahoo has a list of features that you can use built into your account so you can log in to Yahoo and find yourself doing more than just checking your mail. The major difference from Yahoo and G-mail and any other E-mail company is that Yahoo has a specific place for everything, to go to your mail you have to click a small tab somewhere on the page in other words it does not show your mail in the easiest way. Think about it Why do you have a E-mail account? to receive E-mails! Then why do you need to go to Yahoo!’s home page before you can actually see your mail? it really does not make sense to me. Beside that fact you can do just about anything on Yahoo like pick a color theme(you cant customize here only three colors to choose from) or get widgets on the side of your tab to help you use your email better. Safety is a priority here in Yahoo! MacAfee runs virus scans on e-mail sent out and received on your account, but this takes a longer time.

Windows Live/MSN/Hotmail….http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/4/44/LiveCom2.jpg

Beside the confusion on the name; Windows live(lets just call it Windows Live) is a good mail server too but still like yahoo it lacks some important stuff needed to easily access your account. The picture you see on the right is what you see when you log in to your account. once again you have to click “Mail” to get to your actual purpose on the site. Then again Microsoft took E-Mail to the next level by making Windows Live(or changing Hotmail to Windows live). When you hit the homepage you see a lot of useful things such as the weather and news(which is there in yahoo too). When you click the Mail button it takes you to a page where you see all of your mail put out in a simple fashion. which is easy to access. If you have a PC you have a advantage by a gadget built in to your Windows 7/Vista/XP called Windows Live mail. Here you can send out E-mail and receive it with out even having to get use your internet browser! Security is standard on Windows Live mail- that's the only part that I dislike because I don't want to open a inbox with tons of viruses in it!


P.S : Chat is standard on all these websites. The reason I picked these three websites is because they are the most know/popular.



  1. I would like to say it's kinda sad how everyone is too afraid to use computers.. If people would use common sense, and disregard the "hype", they would be just fine..

  2. I'm really liking the concept of this blog; computers, technology and the internet have always been one of my strong interests. Btw, I use Gmail and Hotmail / Windows Live :]

  3. I think that Gmail is by far the easiest to use! I love it. Yahoo and Hotmail get so full of junk, Gmail is simple but gives everything you need! I really like your blog it is great!
