    Okay, so lately I've been having problems with GMail and the password. I keep getting notifications about suspicious activity and I have to change my password. This is such a huge pain the farkin *** cuz I have to change two laptops, email programs, plus everything on my iPhone, the calendars and IM programs...

    I know for a fact that my password isn't getting hacked because I make it tough to know for the average ***** out there. Sometimes I have to think about it to remember it...

    So I'm getting tired of doing this crap once a week. Is there any other service that performs as well as Google with all the functionality that google can give me like calendars and stuff?

    I have a Yahoo email. Does Yahoo do push on the iPhone through an Exchange account setup?

    Yahoo might be able to replace Gmail email push, but does Yahoo offer all the sync options that Google does? replacing Docs, Calendar, Contacts...what a pain!

    i dont think you can use yahoo on an exchange server. mobileme is a good alternative for all those, but its not free. i've actually switched back to mobileme because of the aliases you can have. i didnt know about them until recently, but i've set up different email addy's for friends, forums, work, etc..

    Doesn't that really, you know, defeat the purpose of having logon id's and passwords? Isn't that what those things are for, to authenticate you? That's why I call tech support every time I log into my bank. If you use the same computer but a different web browswer, you have to reset your password because the bank doesn't recognize the computer you're using.

    So I ask the bank the same question. What's the purpose of logon id's and passwords? Authentication. Stupid.
