    Hi,

    I am currently ussing gmail and I have noticed some delays but the issue why I wan to change is because I have read that google is being investigated for negligent collection of personal information.

    I am thinking on yahoo or hotmail and I would like your opinion on them.

    Thanks

    I also use Gmail. It seems to have more functionality than the others. Hotmail (Live) works well, but it doesn't have calendar sync at this time. I have also had delays with Hotmail. I have a Yahoo! Account and used to use it when you were able to sync contacts and address book through the desktop manager. But that functionality has been altered a little. I don't believe you can sync your address book anymore and again, you can't sync your calendar. I have 2-way, wireless sync with email, address book, and calendar with Gmail that works flawlessly. Incidentally, I don't worry about Google's privacy issues that much. I'm sure their security isn't any worse than any other email client.

    That's very interesting because although I dont use gmail I have become increasingly concerned with Google - like finding little programs running on my system

    Sounds like Google might be using their weight to harvest information about users in secret
