    Hosting package for $domains has a reliable mail service as well, so I've used them for about 5 yrs.

    Erm, depends on who I am and what I'm up to:

    For my own little business I've got my own domain. For friends there's a couple of Yahoo accounts, and for family there's a hotmail account.

    I get most of it (where possible) pushed to a gmail account for ease of use and spamfiltering.

    Do I detect an ulterior motive to this post, as GMail is currently down?

    Gmail for general junk \ mass mail etc
    Google aps for everything else. Did try Windows Live rubbish, but the spam at the bottom hacked me off. Plus no unix guru likes getting it those rubbishly html emails

    Have my own domain with hosting providers email, plus various hotmail and gmail accounts for stuff.
    Have the important accounts set up on my blackberry, which is a fantastic device.

    I generally use my work e-mail for everything (I know it's bad practice!) I do have a hotmail account I use for things where I'm likely to get spammed, etc.
