I've always been wondering.. Do people actually use the webmail included in our hosting packages? Personally I use Gmail for my emails, although I kinda like Roundcube too..

Well I use web mail (squirrelmail) for only business purpose. For personal use I prefer Yahoo mail, because I don't like to use Gmail. FYI, just 2 days ago I was trying to send some pics to my friends and once again Gmail showed its freaky nature.

They do. If you run a company or even a personal website you want to have a email that includes your domain.

I used to up until I finally decided to give Google Apps a try, and fell in love.. Now I'm switching to Google Apps for all of my domains.

I switched a few short years ago from Outlook to Gmail, which I decided on after looking through most of the popular web-based clients (free and paid). I thought to myself why the headache of running your own mail server, following up on updates, etc when Gmail has a very active development team behind them.

I haven't looked back since. Gmail is focused on productivity and I noticed just how much more efficient my days have become after I settled in and set it up as per my requirements.

About 4-5 years ago haha!

I prefer building our own mail servers now, corporate wise we use qmail-toaster/qmail

No webmail interface, mainly configure via unix and just connect strait from the desktop for mail.

I use the email a host provides in the control panel, but I own all my servers so I do not use shared hosting. I use email from Gmail for personal use and YouTube and other places.

Sure, I use it all the time. I think it's a little easier to setup than Google's hosted mail, though definitely less feature-rich.

Hosted web mail is good and it doesn't keep changing features and looks on you a few times a year like others can.

If you run a service, product related website then it is advisable to have Email account with your domain name like markruber at Even medium and large organization use their company name for Email. Gmail, yahoo, Hotmail are just for personal purposes.
