    What do you use for email?

    Just curious.

    I use gmail for my main account as I can access it at home or at work or on vacation.
    The ability to access it from any browser is the main reason.

    My work account (retail) I use thunderbird.

    A little bit of Calypso, Courier, and Outlook but thunderbird seems to trump those.

    I had originally setup my email with Bellsouth but have since left them and went to charter. I can still use my Bellsouth email but have been gradually transitioning myself to my Gmail account exclusively and I use Thunderbird as my primary mail client.

    At my office we have our own Exchange Server...and on my laptop I use Outlook 2010, on my phone I use Touchdown e-mail client.
    My junk e-mail account is a GMail account....browser based from PC, and naturally on my Droid phone..the Google client.

    I use Thunderbird for all my accounts (9), including yahoo & gmail.
    The yahoo and gmail accounts are set to keep mail on server.

    I used Calypso for years and then Courier, but moved to t-bird about 5 years ago because most of my computing time is on my Linux laptop, and I don't want to run WINE.

    I use 2 different Yahoo accounts and 3 on my "windows mail",I need multiple accounts for Ebay,work, clients,etc,etc.

    I think the spam protection on my yahoo accounts is very good.

    Years ago I had mysself setup with several different accounts i.e. yahoo, gmail etc along with Outlook. As of now I'm back using Outlook 2010 with 2 email accounts from my ISP. I do believe I have an MSN acount in order to access Messenger and a Yahoo mail since I had to enroll to use Flickr. I do not use either of those for any email at all.

    gmail @ Home
    Thunderbird @ Work

    I think myself and one other person use Thunderbird at work.... Everyone else is on Outlook.
