    I use Yahoo, Me.com (thinking about switching it to iCloud.com), and Gmail; I do have a Mail.com that I used once to sign up for something and now I don't even remember the email address!

    Out of all the email servers, I love gmail the best. It's very reliable with my calendars for home and work communicating with each other.

    I use Gmail (got an account when I got my first iPad). Now, it's indispensable because it's accessible anywhere (web, iDevices, etc.). I also use my RoadRunner mail account. But, it's a POP service, so the Gmail one always saves the day when I'm out and about.

    Hotmail - my first email account ever since maybe 1999 (??? or was Yahoo the first?) guessing, had it since before I had my very own computer :)

    Outlook.com - the new hotmail - converted old hotmail account to this while people who have to old hotmail account can still use as the email gets forwarded to the new Outlook account.

    Gmail - several accounts including two Google Voice numbers. Have different accounts for different purposes. First one was set up simply because I wanted one. Free account with lots of free storage, virtually unlimited, and it is free to use POP unlike yahoo and hotmail (grandfathered so I don't pay).

    Both Me and iCloud.com - came with iPad / Apple

    Other accounts not listed in Poll:

    Verizon.net - use as disposable account. Came with FIOS in January 2012. Never used these for anything important as email will disappear along with Internet service if I decide to switch. Also had a Verizon address when I had DSL several moons ago. ;)

    MSN account when I had their dial-up back in 2001 lol.

    Time Warner Cable / Road Runner addresses - these changed if you moved from one address to another in the same borough / town where they still offered Time Warner. I do miss my tlbaker@nyc.rr.com address, though ( I liked the NYC part).

    Optimum Online address - when I moved to my place that I am in now back in 2008 where they didn't offer TWC but glad as I was looking forward to Optimum Voice; much cheaper than Digital Voice with more features.

    UK online - free address with lots of storage back in 2001 before Gmail and the like. Free POP. Used to use it with Incredimail with my Yahoogroups where I got tons of email from all my Incredimail groups. Incredimail.com. Stopped paying for premium Yahoo mail lol.

    Probably even had a few more accounts I can't recall right now searching for the perfect free one lmao.

    People make fun of all the email addresses I have; however, I am always able to find all of my business email and such because they are under a particular account while everyone else looses their stuff or gripe about having to start using folders.

    Hope you were amused / entertained or at least lulled into blissful slumber by my post lol.

    Yes, gmail is my favorite. Me and iCloud are also good disposable addresses and good to use with people who only use email to communicate on the Internet ( don't text). That way it doesn't clog up my gmail - if I can remember to use them or get them to use them lol.

    iCloud, GMail, Yahoo, and a business domain for the RV Park that has never been used except in tests.

    iCloud is my primary email address with a few Google related service related emails coming in through GMail. Yahoo is a legacy address that almost never gets used these days, though I do keep an eye on it.

    Did you know you can set up to two aliases at icloud.com? In case you need addresses even more disposable than your main iCloud account addresse(s).

    My "main" email (which I still don't use much) is my Yahoo. My me.com is mainly used for registrations to online services (eg. iPF). My Gmail is just for YouTube, and I don't even remember my mail.com address.
    We need an iPF email (eg goofy8275@ipf.net) for our subscriptions so it doesn't clog up our regular email! :D

    No, I didn't, cool!!! I will check out. I happened upon the iCloud address one day and then I received an email from Apple about it.

    If you have an @me address then you already have an @icloud address. All you have to do is start using it. They are pretty much interchangeable, so just pick the one that you like best. You can also use whichever one you like when asked for your Apple ID (if the same as iTunes account).

    Someone like me who started during or before the MobileMe days will have an @mac address.

    The down side of this is that I have sites scattered around the internet that use both my @mac and @me addresses. Makes keeping track of stuff a bit more complicated. Someday (yeah, that day) I'll have to consolidate this, or not.

    For now I'm sticking with the @me address. It's short and pleasing to the ego.

    You could use a Rule in GMail or icloud.com to flag and move iPF emails to a folder. Done on the server side they would move before you see them on the computer or mobile device.
