I'm with Anne - Gmail. I have several email accounts and I use them
seamlessly in Gmail. My company uses Gmail, so I have two Gmail accounts
and they're easy to manage as well. It is always there wherever I can
access the net, and since I have an Android phone, it's super easy and
convenient there. I even get my work Gmail chat requests on my phone. There
are lots of near add-ons from Google labs too. And best of all - it's free.

I finally made the switch when I had to move T-bird to a new system - it
took forever and lots of trial and error. With gmail, you just type in a
URL and log on.

And of you're concerned about security, you can use Google's two-step
authentication which virtually eliminates the chance of someone hacking
your mail account.

My 2¢,

JG
