great google-ee-moogly!
Due to rising frustration with Yahoo, I've begun the (slow) process of switching to Gmail.

My new email there is the same as my yahoo one, just replace the underscore with a period (and change the domain name, too, silly!)

Hmm, mine seems to be working fine. What trouble are you having?

it has a tendency to get hung up loading pages, or load them really slowly... I suspect (although am not sure) that it has something to do with what banner ads are being loaded.

i've also been getting timeouts a fair bit recently...

also, i've been getting this "you seem to have found a problem" error message a fair bit recently... goes away when you reload, but still...

There's also the problem that many spam filters are fairly dubious about its email. When I do the occasional check through my spam folders for mis-flags, over half of the legitimate messages tend to be from Yahoo.

I switched over to a gmail account at the end of 2005 and I haven't been sorry at all. In particular, I get a wicked little thrill when I consign something to the 'SPAM' folder...

Since this message, I have gotten the error mentioned once but generally it is working well for me.

Moo ha ha ha. Join us.

Seriously, the move to gmail is worth it, if for no other reason than its sorting by conversation instead of by date.

The new way of doing things will take some getting used to, but I think it'll be worth it...
