Your view on this is wrong.Gmail is secure as fuck even though it's VERY popular - the only viable weakness is your password strength.I am using gmail for a very, very long time and will continue to use it (mostly because of the great service and being able to use the IMAP protocol with thunderbird) and it has a great spam protection.Yahoo mail was great in it's time... many years ago. Now it's just crappy email system.Hotmail?... pff yeah right.This view (more popular -> more likely to get hacked) does not apply to gmail in terms of server compromisation. They can only get in if your password is very weak.
Which is the most secure email provides? Gmail? yahoo ? hotmail ? If you ask me id say that their popularity is there greatest weakness. Why? Becaus these are the onse that black hats target most, so a large number of users fall in their traps. For example, mostly black hats make rats, back doors, and other MALECOUS programs based on windows and MAC os x becaus most users use windows and then most users (less then windows users) use os x. Just like that black hats will keep finding ways to hack popular email provider systems like gmail , yahoo etc . So no matter how secure these emaile provider systems become the black hats will always fined a way to hack it. There for these email systems are only secure for a short amount of time (from latest securety update till the black hats find a way to hack it) So what do you guys use for emailing? Im using hushmail .(free account) which keeps the data encripted , and the decription key is my password. It also encripts the email when i send it to some one else. This time the debristion key is a questions answer that the recever must know to access the email. So what do you guys think about email providers like gmail, yahoo, etc popular services and which is the most secure one to you.

It crashes because science.
Gmail with a > 64 alphanumeric characters, but make sure you encrypt everything you send with RSA and use a proxy/ TOR/ VPN, just in case Google decides to go snooping.Ok, maybe I'm being a little paranoid with the password length and proxy thing but one can never be too careful.

@Fur I use 100 chars for my password, lol.
