I Use Yahoo Mail

I have been using Yahoo mail for more than 10 years without any problems. I use web-based mail because it is easy to set up, and the E Mail address is permanent. Yahoo mail has developed to the point where it is basically an application within your browser. As an aside it uses a lot of memory to run. And because of the ads on the side, it is best to have a large screen otherwise the messages get squeezed in between the menus on the left and the banner ad on the right.

The second reason is security. I've always been afraid that if mail is automatically loaded on my computer, a virus will get through and run all over my system. Web-based email gives me the choice of what to open or not to open. I've only gotten a handful of viruses over many years, and none came through E mail.
