Hello, the subject may be confusing but that\'s exactly what I need: reasons not to have a as a main free email account.

I know that many of you still use yahoo or hotmail to send and recieve job related emails. I\'ve got my email address @ and I absolutely prefer it to any other free email server. Basically, because of its accesibility and the spam. You see, whenever I open a new window I get an annoying pop-up advertisment, but I know it\'s going to be there so it\'s not so annoying anymore and it\'s easy to close. And I rather do this instead of deleting several emails each day, many of them potential carriers of viruses. At proz-everyone mail I don\'t get spam, only from sites I\'m subscribed to (or is it \'subscribed with\'?).

Well, some days ago a friend and collegue told me that I shouldn\'t use that account because many proZ use that server just to manage basically kudoz and some other proZ related emails. Although not a reason to stop using that account, it really made me wonder if there is an explanation for this. Does anybody know what that would be? Have you tried it yet? Have you stopped using it? I\'m really curious about it.

Any comment would be appreciated.
