I'm using yahoo for many years now because of which I'm not able to switch on to other providers although Gmail is my #1 choice and for others too I believe. Yahoo sends my important mails to spam and sometimes all spam mails to my inbox. Yahoo do sucks, let me tell you, they will have to shut down their company sometime. You'll see that!
