Yesterday I changed my personal email address from Yahoo Mail to Mailcan. I've had my Yahoo address for over five years now - I originally changed from Hotmail because the spam grew to epic proportions.

I made the switch because yesterday my boyfriend didn't receive an email I'd sent for over four hours. Other people had mentioned the lag to me before but a mixture of laziness and denial held me back, but a four hour lag was the last straw as it was an important email.

I downloaded Windows Live Mail, where I can receive and send emails from multiple accounts in one application. My Yahoo Mail is set up on there too as there will be some overlap before all my emails go to Mailcan.

Initial set up was a pain (copious amounts of shouting and cursing anyone?) but it's working nicely now. The interface is easy to use and it's much better than logging into multiple websites to read all my mail.

In other news I'll have the read through of my novel finished today, and then I'll get onto mapping the links between characters of each story.

Alix, can I ask why you left yahoo?
Just about finished the novel now - nail biting stuff!
