Default Should I upgrade from hotmail to something else?

I've been using hotmail for years, but since 2010 dropped I've seen a slow but steady increase in spam, as well as sudden instance of no-service. I've never really looked into different email clients, so I'm not too sure where to start.

Anyone have any suggestions?

Gmail has a very good spam filter, lots of space, a clean UI, and sorts related emails into 'conversations'. I recommend it.

Gmail is a very nice choice. If you use firefox, there are even a couple of very nice addons you con put on it that let you manage your Gmail account from a tab with just a click. It's really great.

The only reason i don't use if is because i've had the same e-mail for 6 years now, on mail.com . they are also pretty great, and let you pick what comes after your @

Default I quite truly do not use these accounts, so I don't care about them.

I think I have (had?) a hotmail account specifically for use on registration forms and things when a fake e-mail address wouldn't work and I knew spam would hit.

Oh man. I still have an IGN e-mail account for that, too.

...

Ha ha ha ha oh Lord it has so much spam in it.

Thankfully Google's tools are much better at filtering if spam mails ever start hitting your account.

I personally hate gmail. Just don't like the way it's put together and I've never gotten more spam than after I signed up with them. I've never gotten any spam in hotmail, and I can't recall the last time I had any other problems with it. I really don't get where all the hate comes from for hotmail.
