Another benefit over yahoo! is that Gmail fully supports POP3, so if you prefer to have an e-mail reader like Outlook or Thunderbird on your home computer, you can, and still get to it online from anywhere.

Gmail is wonderful. It's all I use, I set up my ISP email to foward to gmail so It's the only place mail goes.

I love gmail too! I started using it about 4 years ago, and it is by far my favorite. All my mail from other accounts (including yahoo) is forwarded to my gmail. You also have a calendar, you can write/read documents, and share them with other users. I also use the chat a lot. Sign up and try it!

I've had gmail since you had to have an invitation from Google directly (before they would let users invite people) I've watched it expand and grow and turn into a truly unique piece of mastery! It's really cool and I used to send in feedback surveys every few weeks about new additions. I don't even know how I ended up getting the initial invite. I've been enamoured with Google since they first arrived on the scene. I LOVE gmail!

I love Gmail too and I have all my email forwarded to it.

The labels are my favorite part! I like to leave recent stuff in my inbox, and I can use the labels to delete the old ones when new ones come in. (I get a lot of newsletter and sale updates.)

You can also put multiple labels on email -- some of mine have three or four -- so I can sort them and search for them in whatever way seems the easiest at the time!

I just started gmail a few months ago. Had Yahoo mail for years, and got so tired of all the spam, so I switched. That is the biggest and best difference for me. With gmail, no spam (yet!).
