Email is a part of our everyday online lives whether we are at work or at home. This week we would like to know which email services you use at work or at home.


We have come to depend on e-mail as an important part of our lives because it lets us stay in contact with our families, friends, and coworkers. It even serves as a way to save information back for ourselves such as important notes, dates, and images. Imagine what it would be like to go through life without e-mail now.

With the multitude of different e-mail providers available you can easily find one that fits your life and personal needs. Perhaps you need just the basics or prefer one with all the bells and whistles.

Our choice of e-mail provider can also make a personal statement about us as people. Do we want to use a service that is well established and comfortable, one that seems “hip and cool”, or one that is new to the scene? It all depends on what you are looking for in an email provider.

With the recent growth in inbox size, allowed size of attachments, and additional features among the different providers it is a terrific time to shop around. Will you stay with the “tried and true” or look at something new…

Which email services do you use? Do you use the same one for home and work or do you use multiple services to cover both? Let us know in the comments!
