Wierd ideas people have and some odd opinions, hotmail is great especially with the outlook update and yeah you keep your address if you want.

Micrsoft don`t read all your email for a start unlike GMail. But hey if you`re happy to be the food in the foodchain you go ahead with your `once was hip` GMail. You only get spam if YOU are the weakest link. Same account since hotmail started, ~5 spam per week.

If there was no Hotmail, the porn and "business proposals" would have nowhere to go for addresses.

I use Gmail for my junk account. I have my own domain name for my real email.

Gmail works fine for me. I can import from other accounts and when I delete spam it doesn`t come back.

Hotmail is like Yahoo... email for junk mail accounts. All those places that make you put in an email address but you don`t want to give our your real one. Like when I signed up at IAB

*shrug* you get an account and then don`t want to bother changing your registered account on the millions of internet services you use. It`s understandable I guess.

I have a bunch of email accounts. When a stupid website (like IAB) makes me provide an email address I give out one of the "garbage accounts" so I don`t get spam in the one I actually use. So it`s your fault fancylad!
