    I'm using both services from these email providers, but just curious which one do you prefer?

    Gmail or Yahoo mail?

    Tit for tat the available services which comes with gmail for me means that Gmail is the out right winner... For example you've got access to a G+, Hangouts, Youtube, Online document storage ~15Gb, online office tools, keyword planner tool, webmaster tools, analytics just being some of them....

    Gmail over Yahoo.. But I don't trust any of these places, rather run my private mail server.

    I understand why you don't trust Yahoo since they have had security issues but why don't you trust Gmail?

    I also prefer it (Gmail) myself since google basically makes you have to have it to use their android stuff...

    I prefer Gmail out of these (and other public) two email service providers. Gmail is more of a plain and simple approach and I like that, which is part of my choice for them.

    I also like the fact that their spam email filter is a lot better than the one at Yahoo. ;)

    I used to prefer Yahoo for many years but their interface has become more of a pain than it used to be so out of these options I would choose Gmail. The interface in Gmail is a lot easier and more simple and that's a part of my preference.

    Cheers, Dean.

    I prefer gmail. Based on all the other features that are available with the gmail login.

    I think it is a really good service.

    I like gmail since it's easier to find the settings and do things in. I also like it because it is tied into other google services as well so it makes it easier. Yahoo is ok as another option.

    I prefer gmail better for many different reasons. I especially like how everything is tied together with other google services like adwords, adsense, analytics and some others too.

    I don't really like yahoo because doing things like changing some of the settings for email is not always easy to find. I also don't like their home page because it's just too busy and has too much things going on.

    Out of these I guess it would have to be gmail. Since they have it tied in to everything that google does it just makes it easier to use since I need to sign in to other services anyway.

    I use Google Gsuite for my businesses, which is a gmail account with your own domain. So I would pick Gmail.

    I like gmail for my uses since I need it for my tablet (android) and because it is needed for all of the google services and it's just easier to use and fill my needs.

    Gmail is clear winner. It is famous , simple and easy to use as we all open google homepage for searching.
    Also if you use smartphone or tablets then android has an application for gmail, which is very easy to use.
    On the other hand yahoo is old fashioned and today yahoo mail is not as common as gmail.

    I definitely say Gmail, why?
    Gmail is much easier for me and way the messages are sorted in Gmail makes things more easily accessible. Yahoo just clumps everything together as one. If there is a way to sort Yahoo mail like Gmail into Primary, Promotions, Update and Social, let me know.
    Aside from that a Gmail accounts comes with so many different apps you can use, like YouTube (my favourite)

    I am also using both Email. However, I prefer Gmail over Yahoo since there are many features that I can do when I compare them. With Gmail, there are applications I can use which are very relevant and essential with my work for example, Hangouts and Google Docs, I use it everytime and its very helpful for me.

    I had a yahoo account way back when I was a teenager and Yahoo was the trend before haha! That's why I had an account with them and is still active since its where I use to login at social media sites i've signed up before,

    Although I have both gmail and yahoo accounts but I prefer to use most of the time my gmail account. It's easy to use. The format is just simple. And one thing that makes gmail great is you can have one account to access your youtube, google drive, google book and google play.

    Both of them are good mailing site but I am using and prefer Gmail than Yahoo mail. For me, Gmail is more updated and user friendly, it has also an easy access to google, and it sorted messages will. Gmail is what people used nowadays so it makes it more easy to connect with others.
