does any one use Google mail? are you happy with the mo I use my BT email address but paying £1-60 a month for it now as I am not with bt internet any more as I have gone with plusnet and so far so good after 3 months...but setting up an email address for them seems complicated. so was going to try Google mail.

Yes, I use it. No real problem although I find it tricky to find saved mail sometimes.

I am with Plusnet-but gave up with Google mail, it seemed to be beyond me. I am now with Yahoo.

I've got a gmail account and haven't had any problems so far.

I have three options for E mail, one being google but I stick with my BT address and have never had any problems.

I have BT and gmail, but mostly stick to the BT. I too have trouble finding saved mail on Google, also am not able to open attachments.

I use a BT email address which goes through to our main computer but I also use a Gmail address. I much prefer the Gmail one for lots of reasons. I've set it up to send and receive emails from my phone, tablet or main computer, so very convenient. It's a shorter address therefore easier to type and give out to people. I use a different password so it's a bit more private than the BT one. I like the way you can personalise the inbox, either have the "conversation" view or chronological order.
Tend to use BT for emails that are relevant to both of us and use the Gmail one for my personal use
