How do you do email?

Post icon  Posted 07 August 2007 - 12:02 PM

So how do you do teh email? What do you primarily use?


Do you use webmail like Gmail, Hotmail, Yahoo? ISP or web host provided webmail?

Maybe an email program like Outlook or Thunderbird? POP? IMAP?

Do you have all of your domain name emails (for those who have a domain) forward to another address?

Well I mostly use Thunderbird for my email. I connect using a Gmail account and have my twenty or so emails forward to my Gmail.

I will often use the online service when I am around and about or want to find an email I deleted in Thunderbird. Google makes life easy with iGoogle and having my email on my homepage as well on my computer. I guess I am paranoid about losing something.

I do use many of my domains for emails but I never give them their own mailbox, they just forward to gmail. :D

:wub: I love everything Google and Mozilla :wub:

Thunderbird POP at home. Pine / Horde on a server I use for personal things. Sometimes webmails. And our corporate client is Outlook, but I only use it for internal emails, and Thunderbird runs besides it IMAP on my usual accounts.
Hm, sounds weird, but it works. I think...

Since google launched the gmail I'm only using the online interface.
I have my couple of email adresses forwarded to my gmail account and my firefox plug tells me every new message.
Before I used Thunderbird but in my opinion since gmail theres no need for special software.

I use Thunderbird but I have a couple of online email addys too.
I have a few of domains that forward and a few that have proper mail boxes.
I'm working on setting up an smtp server though so I can roam and log in to my own server.

I have my own mail server (qmail on FreeBSD) & I read & filter them via the web-mail (squirrel mail). I filter my paypal e-mail through cyberspace.org, using pine so I can tell the BS e-mails from the authentic ones, using text based.

I just REALLY want gmail to launch IMAP support so I can sync into outlook, and on my smartphone.

My Moto Q has a Gmail app, but I would rather use the integrated email functions.
