    Default [OT] Email Recommendations

    I need a new email address as the 2 I have are not so much full of spam but just ones that I don't care to use as much. I have one Yahoo account and one Hotmail account. Mainly I just use these for email addresses where one has to be provided (guitar center, pro audio star, ect.)

    Looking for free email that doesn't have to do a lot, but just works right. More for personal & a few business related contacts. I was considering gmail, but saw that they just changed some things recently that many people didn't like as far as the layout goes.

    Which one(s) do you use? Do you like them? Also important is that is has to be able to be forwarded or "pushed" to my phone. Thanks for your recommendations. I'd post a poll between AOL, GMAIL, YAHOO, and OTHER, but I don't know how.

    If you really can't stand the UI changes to the gmail web app (which after a bit of playing around aren't _that_ awful), it's pretty easy to set up your gmail account in a full email client installed on your computer with POP/IMAP.

    I've been on gmail since the invite period in 04/5, did that setup and honestly I've been using the web app most of the time for about 2 years now.
    For more security you can now enable 2-step authentication, nice to have.
    Push isn't a problem usually - what kind of phone are we talking about?

    You're familiar with Yahoo and hotmail already, won't comment on those - if only that hotmail's webmail has improved, but I feel it's still lagging behind gmail's, specifically when it comes to managing folders and sub folders (or rather, "labels" in gmail, which are more like tags... so you can tag a message to appear in several folders...).
