I don't know which is better but I like gmail. I have very few problems with it. I've never used hotmail. However, my wife uses hotmail and she doesn't have any problems to speak of either. So, I guess what it boils down to with this vast dataset of 2 is which one has features you want that aren't available in the other one.

I have to agree about google. I use google for several things besides gmail and it's doing everything I need so far.

Stupid question - why do you need to change your email address if you physically move? Sounds like more pain than gain to me with having to setup the new account, add all your contacts, etc. Sorry if I misunderstood your situation.

I would bet the OP has his email account with the internet provider in his area... which is what most people end up doing if they didnt know any better ...

I have both several Gmail and Live Mail (Microsoft, similar to HotMail) accounts, and they all work very well.

I use them in IMAP mode, so I can access them via mail clients from different PCs. As far as I know, HotMail does not offer that IMAP feature.

I have not had any problems with them during the last years.

Further I have made bad experiences with Yahoo (problems with integrated virus scanner) and German providers web.de and gmx.net, which I do not recommend.

If I try to connect to that site, I just get the message

"Your Browser Is Not Supported".

Very funny.

Not recommended.

They got them back. In any case, one should have offline backups of their emails when using a third-party service. One method is to setup Thunderbird to download emails automatically for disaster-recovery (this is what I do for my Gmail).

What Browser do you use ? I just access the site with IE (which I don't use; just tested IE for the purpose of this post), Opera, Firefox and Safari and it is OK, except for Opera that displays "Browser Is Not Supported", but still allows you to continue to access the site when you click the "Continue" button. In any case, me.com is an Apple Mail service that attracts subscription fee, it is therefore not free; I use it on my Mac's Mail client and it is just GREAT.

@Fat Tails is using Links 1.0 I think, the 1998 release.

Gmail is better, no doubts at all.

What? There is even older one called Lynx, a text based browser on Unix.

Why should I pay for something, if I can get it for free?

Gmail for me as well. I use Backupify to keep safe my gmail emails. Heard about this site from Lifehacker.com a while back. Its free for personal use. Fortunately I've never had to use it so far but I feel a bit better knowing its there and at least I have a chance if things go belly-up:-)

Gmail is definitely better, just because it is a much safer option for most users and companies. Cybersecurity has been a main focus of mine for years now, and happily, I have a G Suite backup solution from to backup my Gmail to the cloud.
