    It's just practically impossible to shift to another mail service totally, but sticking to Yahoo address always, but I can use Gmail interface to solve this problem

    Get only old messages
    If you recently switched to Gmail, you can transfer your old emails from your other account.

    1. Open Gmail.
    2. In the top right, click Settings [​IMG][​IMG] Settings.
    3. Click the Accounts and Import or Accounts tab.
    4. In the second section, click Import mail and contacts.
    5. Follow the steps on the screen.
    6. Click Start import.
    To give you time to tell your friends about your new Gmail address, we'll forward messages sent to your other account for 30 days.

    I've used Yahoo Mail for probably 15 years. It's not the best interface, but in all that time haven't had an issue. Hard to change email address now.

    I was extremely surprised when I found out the Java developer I live with still uses Yahoo (he has a gmail too) for most of his email.

    At the same time, I get the inertia factor.

    Nothing to surprise if he is old enough (i.e. over 30 or 25), at those old times we only had Yahoo mail and now most old connections are still stick to Yahoo. That's why I have pain in my arse always with Yahoo and still, full of junk

    Uhhh, I'm 30. And I've had gmail since it came out in 2004 (hotmail before that).

    But yes, he's in his late 30s, though I know he got gmail as soon as it came out (bought an invite on ebay for $1 I think). I think my surprise was that he hasn't transitioned away from the yahoo account in the past 10+ years.

    What is more surprising to me, with the proliferation of free and inexpensive domain hosting, is why more people don't set up their own email server and get out of the "monitoring" loop - Google and Yahoo and other email services scan your email for advertising and junk mail companies glean your email address off those services.

    It's easy to host your own email server, 99% of the people here could set it up and for a small cost have access to your own domain.
