Outlook Express isn't an email provider, it's software that allows you to receive emails using POP3 which helps to send and recieve emails on an email account. The same goes for Thunderbird and Outlook.

I've never heard of GMX before so I wasn't trying to make a comparison. Outlook Express is pretty popular though and the interface is quite simple.

I know but we were talking about email generally and ease of use aside from just the web mail provider poll.

My Gmail account is rising past 2GB! Is anyone else experiencing this? I am not complaining. I have been sending photos on Gmail and it is great with the HUGE storage!

Anyway, why have people voted for what they have? Why do you thing one is better than the other?

Also, what features are missing. What features do you think would be handy? If you were to improve Gmail or Hotmail what would you add? Did you know you can suggest features to Gmail?
