      Right!!!! Every time I get a message the ads reflect something related to the subject line is....Not crazy about the " conversation" format either.

      One thing that was preventing me from using Gmail as my primary email was privacy. For some reason I didn't feel secure using Gmail.

      I totally agree with D. Gmail is unavailable when you want it . Mail Plus also has NO Ads or banners unlike Gmail, which seems to be able to place ads that are related to your email subjects....so much for privacy. I have never had a error message saying Yahoo Mail was unavailable. I have always thought Yahoo! Mail was far superior to Gmail even conventiental Yahoo Mail.

      The reason I stick with Yahoo is when I used Gmail, it was extremely unreliable. Some of my emails did not go through. I went through a full day without being able to check my mail, I kept getting that "Oops, please try again later" message. In about 10 years of using yahoo mail I can count on one hand the amount of times I was not able to access my account, and it never lasted for more than an hour at the latest.

      Add in that I hate labels, I prefer folders and Yahoo mail is the way to go for me.

      Just know that not everyone's experience with Gmail is as rosy as some of yours, we have our reasons for preferring yahoo to gmail.

      Eh, do you guys know that you can do ALL the below with Gmail for
      FREE? ($20/year adds up over the years.) And do even MORE with Gmail
      than Yahoo! Mail?

      Gmail also lets you send out emails using different email addresses
      and you can also archive emails. And you get more than 2 gigabites of
      storage. There's also free Vacation Response and Forwarding as well.

      Gmail has excellent spam protection as well. I get no spam emails.

      I just can't understand why Yahoo! Mail is not providing free POP
      access!!!
      ~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~
      If Yahoo! Mail provided POP, I would permanently switch to Yahoo!. As
      of this moment I use 20% of Yahoo! Mail and 80% Gmail for different
      purposes. I do like Yahoo! Mail very much, but it's missing so many
      free functions that Gmail provides.

      *SIGH*

      Other than that, how is PLUS that different? Yeah, its nice not
      to have the ads. But frankly, as I've written, I only pay for PLUS,
      to support Groups and 360. Not because Yahoo mail is any better than
      say (free) GMail.

      is a bust, even though I continue to use beta -- and am hoping that
      the update that so many others have -- which I do NOT (I'm what -- at
      least 3 behind now) is faster as some have claimed! But I digress...

      that I hope Yahoo adds IMAP protocol to PLUS accounts. Now that I'd
      find worth the $$$$!
