Stay away from Hotmail is all I can say. A fucking nightmare which I guess should be expected. I just can't be arsed to change EVERYTHING to a new address. Used to use Lycos which was great until the bastards shipped my to Hotmail.

Any (many?) of the gmail complaints could be universal email complaints that probably occur more often with hotmail etc to be honest. I'm also a gmail user - no problems since it began.

Not to sound like a conspiracy theorist, but when gmail MAKES you give them your number so they can call you to give you your activation code, I feel like my position is being triangulated...

they dont force you, you dont have to sign up for that second level of security, how else do you expect to auth something?

Gmail - by far the safest and best. Been using it since the private invite all those years ago.

I've been using the same gmail account since it came out, and I have no complaints.

How long have you had your account? I just got mine a month or so ago. There was no second level anything for me. Just to get an account I had to give them my number.

 

Couldn't I use another email to auth? For people who don't have another, couldn't they use a captcha?

I just signed up for another gmail account 5 minutes ago, didn't have to give them a number.
