How is it? I am going to ditch G-mail soon. I need to find a secure alternative that doesn't share information with government agencies.

I have to wait a few weeks for them to invite me due to issues with servers. I look forward to using it.

I use hotmail for a very long time and its my primal e-maildress for years.

My secondary e-maildress is a hungarian e-mail provider called malbox.hu. They used to use g-mail engin for years but recently they gave it up for working out their own engine.
It was good that Google provided themes but it's menus were overcrouded plus the spam folder was hidden and it was hard to keep eye on it. I also had some trobule with their filtering. It happend usually that I only got some of the e-mail from someone while the other e-mails from the same sender landed in the spam folder.

I use hotmail which is forwarded to my gmail. This way there is a copy of ever single email I have and depending on which email client on which device is giving me troubles I can use either one.

Do people really have just one e-mail account/service?
I've got one Gmail for "official" emails - employment/HR scans, health care, kids' schools contact.
And Hotmail, one of my first, will always be my spambucket.
I keep Yahoo out of inertia from when their Groups actually were a good alternative to USENET.
Plus a scattering on each & some others for use by online personas that would get me fired.
And along the way I've rolled my own when I've had ISP's that allow the ports.

Basically, I'm just too lazy to move/transfer/forward anything when a given service goes from "pretty good" to "we're getting ready to strip the corporation of any value"...

I'm curious, what is an HR scan?
I've never heard the term.

It's what our HR calls it anyway when they take the email (and any other info an applicant gives them) and check to see what they can dredge up in forums, listservs and the like - anywhere that email address might show up. I'm pretty sure all they do besides the usual background checks is google, check facebook, linkedin, etc.. When I was first hired, even having an account here would've been enough to get me fired (unofficially, of course) or not hired in the first place.

For years we've handled all our e-mail on our own computers here at the office. About two weeks ago we started to migrate them to a paid for service at zoho.com.

It costs $24 per e-mail account per year ($2.50 per e-mail account per month if you pay by the month), but it allows us to use our own domains and thus all of our old e-mail addresses remain the same.

Primarily "rocketmail", now part of Yahoo, but also a couple of other services related to my high-speed internet provider and my employer's company contracts. In total I have three addresses, but none are on hotmail, praise God. I hate "hotmail", and I'm not very fond of "g-mail" either. In addition "outlook" is total yuppietrash B.S, IMO.

"HoTMaiL" as it was originally called pre-Microsoft (I refuse to call it, or use it as, "outlook") really does make a wonderful spam-bucket for use when a site requires a valid address and you don't feel like letting them have your personal info. I now have around 135,000 messages in my Inbox...

Google and iCloud(Apple).

Though I'm thinking of switching entirely to iCloud for my normal usage due to Apple not scanning emails and bombarding me with ads based on that scan.

Thanks. :D
I assume all Corp's do something similar these days.
