    I don't know how that works, I just logged in my Yahoo! Mail inbox after 3 years or so, and it was there, with 10000+ spam mails in the Inbox!

    Knightendeo, you need to test software for yourself, and then you will know the answer.

    From the last time i used Gmail (March):

    Hotmail has the ability to crate custom folders.

    Hotmail has different colour choices

    Hotmail can automatically sort into folders.

    Hotmail works seamlessly with WLM

    Other stuff... it's just better

    You can link up to 5 Hotmail accounts together, that's my favorite feature from Hotmail that Gmail doesn't have.

    SkyDrive and Mesh are another Live.com services that are ahead of Google.

    I don't know how it works either, but I'm just reporting what Yahoo! officially says. To them it probably means something along the lines of "we can delete your account after 4 months", but that doesn't necessarily mean they will.

    And 10,000+ spam emails in your inbox!? I don't get any at all...

    EDIT: Yahoo! Mail Plus never gets deleted... is that what you have? Also, if you log in using your Yahoo! id (even if you don't check your email), it should register as logging in thus restarting the 4 month thing.

    Well, you can look at the discussion in this thread: http://forum.notebookreview.com/showthread.php?t=145075

    Or, you can start a new poll with Outlook 2007 instead of (or in addition to) 2003.

    Speaking of Thunderbird, I have noticed some thing I don't understand.

    It appears if I open email on my server, but later download it with Thunderbird, it occasionally places the test of the email in an attachment, which I can't even open.

    Why on earth would Thunderbird do that?

    Also, I notice if I reply using Thunderbird, there is no Date/Time stamp on the email I'm replying to.

    GMail has the ability to create Labels, which are better than folders.

    And? :confused: It's like saying Macs are better than a PCs because an Apple a day keeps a doctor away.

    So can GMail, into lables.

    GMail works seamlessly with GTalk.

    I agree, GMail is just better.

    Yeah, probably.

    I've never given this email to anyone, or any website. I just created it to have the username lest someone else gets it before me.

    No.

    I never user Yahoo! for anything. Don't use Yahoo! Messenger, or Yahoo! X, or Yahoo! Y.
