I use my Yahoo email for entertainment type stuff. Hulu, GNC, Amazon, Netflix, Spotify, ISH (this account at least lol)...basically anytime I wanna be on a mailing list for a company or sign up for something, I use the Yahoo one.
GMail I use for more professional stuff since it's my name and not some nickname I came up with in college. So that's the one I have on my resume, on Careerbuilder/Monster, that's the one I have all my banking statements and credit card stuff sent to...things along those lines.
Between the two I feel like Yahoo is easier to use, but Google is taking over so much stuff like Youtube and the Android market that I use the Gmail one more probably
Certainly not Live or whatever they are calling Microsoft's email provider nowadays.
I still have an old account there. The other day I tried to log in and it tells me my account is suspended because there have been log in attempts from different locations. What you have to understand is that this is my bs-account: I use that email for ISH, for porn, basically everything I don't really care about and want to keep seperate from my professional and personal email. So I don't give a shit who has access to that account.
But it's suspended and the only way I can unlock it is if I provide them with my cell phone number for "verification". What?! First of all that isn't even secure in any way and verifies nothing, because anyone who knows my password could provide a phone number and then lock me out permanently. Secondly, don't they understand that not everybody wants to have every email account directly tied to their person? I don't need to register SSJVegetaSuckingGokusProlapse@hotmail.com on my phone that other people sometimes use, **** off MS.
gmail sounds like a "hood" email lol dunno why .... i dont think there any different really and i dont think anyone employer really cares.... as long as your email aint firstname.lastname@example.org
