I started out with Hotmail back in the day, and occasionally use it. Although its mostly filled with spam.

I upgraded to Gmail quite a while ago and couldn't live without it.

 

For work we use Exchange 2013, and we're migrating users from 2007 all the time.

I own my own domain name and i pay RackSpace $10 a month to host my email. A fantastic service. No Bullshit. A very professional service.

A technical administrator rang from USA to check that i was able to get everything all setup the day i signed up. I'm an administrator myself and didn't need help. However he was able to answer quite a few technical questions normal support would have sent up the chain of command. I'm very happy with them.

How much data do you get with them? It's hosted Exchange?

gmail for 4 accounts, one of which is my real name without embellishment - the equivalent of john.smith @gmail.com - yay ! first of me in the world on gmail

 

the rest is via optusnet

 

and all of it is directed back down to one thunderbird install for ease of use

 

 

gmail is great for many reasons, but the interface is a steaming crock of shit - hence t'bird as the interface

It's 25GB per mailbox. Not Exchange, just standard POP/IMAP mailbox as well as webmail.

 

Just to clarify, it's for personal use. Not business.

i use google contacts and calendar as a convenient backup, but as for integration, i dunno - my email address book is still t'bird centred, but i export the book to backup often enough to overcome crash based disasters

 

the web interface for google calendar is très handy for getting a nudge on things via email / sms, and works happily on the transformer to have a quick look at my hectic itinerary without firing up the desktop; less so on my petite and ancient asus garmin nŭvi phone

 

it replaces the prior device which was a palm tungsten e3 before "upgrades" fucked up my abilities to sync courtesy of win7 dropping 4.0 support; the palm was the uber device for a decade, and android has only recently started to offer an almost comparable level of facility, not least because it stole a lot of concepts from the palm o.s.

all my devices except my PC have easy integration with Google Calendar and Google Contacts, I love Thunderbird, but it's not very easy to integrate.

I use outlook on the desktop to gather all my mail (own domain, hotmail, etc). I think it's because I am so used to it from the corporate environment and I like the integrated mail/calendar/tasks.

 

I use various mail apps my android phone and the usual stuff on the ipad. It's all synced so that all mail/appointments/tasks show up on all devices though this took a little tweaking between outlook and google calendar.
