i know this might seem obvious but why even bother with hotmail? Gmail... 2gig+ and you can use pop with little effort. Btw my first post here. =)

I have been using the same hotmail account for longer than MS has owned it :) So I'm reluctant to switch to another account, not having to change the email address was the primary reason for me to use a web-based email account in the first place! :)

If I were to switch it wouldn't be to gmail though, I really don't want to be part of a service that reads every piece of mail I send or receive and serves up advertising to me based on it. I try to block all the ads I can as it is, last thing I need is more of it! Not to mention the total lack of privacy. (sure, other sites MIGHT be scanning also, but I don't think they are actually ACTING on all the info, just scanning for certain keywords)

So instead of using a service where they tell you exactly what they are doing with your email (automatically scanning it for keywords and offering keyword related advertisements that are unobtrusive) You would rather use a company that secretly scans your emails and does something with it while offering obtrusive advertising with flashy graphics?

what graphics? I am using mail.app to get my mail, there's no graphics involved :) besides, I've had the address for YEARS, and have still manage to avoid the over-flooding of spam that I would get in less than a month on ISP provided accounts (the very worst being AOL)
