Google, GMX, Mail.com, Yahoo, Hotmail, Schools E-Mail. Yeah, I know, quite a few. GMail is my main one, and by far my favourite. And I hate hotmail, I don't like it UI.

I have tried all of those except mail.com and of course your school's email.
I like Gmail but I refuse to use it as my main email for personal reasons
GMX has a crappy UI
Yahoo,well, like everythign else Y!, it sucks
Hotmail, my main choice right now...

I use GMX for signing up to websites that I might get spam from, so the UI doesn't bother me. I don't know what people see in hotmail though...

Nothing. Hotmail is slow, has an ugly interface, and is known to be insecure, (even though I haven't had any problems ever)...
However, I prefer not to have total reliance in one company, for example, I have AdSense, Analytics, YouTube, etc. with Google. I have some email there and some on hotmail. That way it's not the end of the world when one crashes...

I use Yahoo!, Hotmail (Live), Gmail. Yahoo! is my main one, Hotmail is cause I want a plain one for work (and Microsoft if I get there one of these days ;)), and Gmail is for my YouTube channel.

Just to let you know, you don't need a Gmail for YouTube. For example, I can sign in to my Google Account with my hotmail, my gmail, or either one :)

My main email comes from my ISP, my others I create myself through my Webhosts CPanel. I do have one Windows Live account I had to create as my last Host liked using MSN Messenger but I never use it for email.

I don't use my ISP's mail, but I know that it uses Google Apps. So it wouldn't be any different anyway.

I set up Forwarders on my others and send them all to my ISP provided account, easier to check there.
