Yahoo exists because...
yahoo is still there in the market because of their "lock in" strategies...
Every other email provider has free POP/IMAP access while yahoo doesn't It doesn't have free email forwarding as well... If these two were available for all users (not just plus users), Yahoo would be long gone...!

Gmail!!! I do have a separate Yahoo account for their IM, but thats about all I use it for. Gmail rocks!! Just so many innovative features and I like the fact that they don't try to get you to upgrade to a plus account for so much a year. If I'm going to upgrade, I'd just as soon as get a MoMe account and keep my gmail. At least then I have push email that actually works right.

lol after I posted on how I use Gmail, I went to log in to my Yahoo! e-mail account and it's down. I actually like both e-mail clients and its a 55/45 split to gmail because of their themes and labs but I do like both.
Anyone else having Yahoo problems?

Gmail just does a lot of things right and doesn't get in the way. One of the most annoying features of the default Yahoo theme is it lists ALL the messages in your inbox on one page without giving you the option to display the messages on several pages. Thus, if you want to apply an operation, for instance delete a set of messages from a given timeframe, you have to select ALL the messages in your inbox or none at all and tick messages on or off one by one.... Very annoying! Even hotmail does a better job at this.
Also i find searching through your mail messages on Yahoo is essentially broken, doesn't give the results you'd expect.
It's little things like that that turn me off Yahoo.

GMail sucks azz! Yahoo is the bomb!
I have UNLIMITED space with Yahoo. I've never seen anyone give that option. I'm also allowed to send emails up to 20MB. I have never seen that option either from a free email service! My Yahoo mail is pushed IMMEDIATELY to my iPhone 3G. I get the mail on my iPhone faster than my PC does!
And yes I have GMail but I don't use it. I have no need to until Google Wave comes out. Until then I'll be a chatting on Yahoo!

UPDATE: Dammit! I swear not even 2 hours after I write this I was telling my buddy that Sharing Contacts on the iPhone doesn't work via Email because it comes out on the other end as gibberish. He said, I've got GMail and mine came out fine just like an Outlook Contact. Apparently the way Yahoo mail sends it breaks up the .vcf attachment and sends it with all this code in it. Crap! Maybe I'll start also using my GMail!!!
