    Gmail is the worst! I only use it for one of my accounts that I don't really email much.

    Yahoo was the best. They made me change from classic. It's still better than the rest out there, but not as good.

    A good reason to adapt to new changes is that you can pop out to a new window or stay with in the popup so you can check e-mail and compose at the same time instead of opening a new instance of g-mail.

    It's actually very good for me. I send lots of large attachments through email.

    When I first saw the new pop-up window, I was disappointed as you were. Then I figured out that I could click send on the new email in the pop-up and go back to my inbox to do more work, like sending another large file. In the past, I had to wait to send a new email until the first one had finished uploading and sending. Saves me a lot of time.

    I love Gmail. Can't imagine using anything else - not Outlook, not Yahoo.

    I've used Gmail since it was invite only. I personally think it's the best web-based email out there. Their SPAM filters have been exponentially better than Yahoo, Hotmail, etc. for a very long time and my friends with Yahoo email accounts went through a time where their accounts were getting hacked like crazy.

    Thank goodness for having more than one flavor of ice cream. :wink:

    Gmail works the best, but there are privacy issues, not from hackers, but from Google itself. Something was announced a day or two ago that Gmail users should beware.
