It's all just ones and zeroes

My primary method of reading personal email

webmail
49(57.6%)
a client (Outlook, Thunderbird, etc.)
36(42.4%)

My primary email

is through a domain owned by a webmail company (@gmail.com, @hotmail.com, etc.)
41(50.0%)
is through my ISP
10(12.2%)
is through a domain a friend runs
6(7.3%)
is through a domain I run
25(30.5%)


I ask largely because I'm in the midst of changing notzen.com over to being gmail backed (which turns out to be very easy), and am having great fun balancing the needs of people who use clients (and gmail implements IMAP in an idiosyncratic manner) and people who use webmail (and are already sucking their email over to Gmail to read it).

I originally set up the domain so that I wouldn't have to change email address _again_ when I moved ISPs (my first three personal email addresses all being ISP-based ones), and I like having one that belongs to me. But more and more peopleI know seem to be switching over to happily using webmail, and being happy with gmail addresses...
