    Ditching an email account and going with another ?

    Ok Tech fans I aim for a smooth transition should I attempt to give up a roadrunner.com email account . I'm terribly frustrated with it , wont allow me to log in while in Mexico, doesnt work well with my phone , now hit and miss today with my computer here at work . So what should work well ? gmail ? hotmail ? This email is both used for my private and business accounts. LOTS of contacts and a busy account for sure .
    I think there is a way to forward ALL emails to a new account , is that correct ? Thanks

    I had to set up a Gmail account several years ago when I got a new smartphone. I still have it, and it works fine, but my primary one that I've had for years is Yahoo. Never had any problems with it either.

    I am not a fan of gmail at all. Half the time I dont get emails sent to it. quarter of the time they go to spam, even if sender is verified/approved, whatever they call it now.

    Yahoo mail isnt what it used to be, its constantly down and not functionable.

    Outlook has been pretty good, no real complaints other than I dont like how it displays on the screen but that's a me issue I guess. (outlook for my work is a trainwreck but that's different then the internet personal use one)

    The best email I have honestly is the one through godaddy.

    Only problem I have with gmail is some sites won't allow to use it on your account saying it's an unverified account?

    As far as a simple email not affiliated with where you work...

    Everything else is some tepid off brand cola. Google is classic Coke.

    Google drive should be enough to make you switch.

    I've used it for years and haven't ever seen that. What websites?

    Not for sure off top of my head, but my officiating scheduling website was the one I had the most trouble with.

    Sounds like an issue with that site not your Gmail account.
