I tried searching for my answer but didn't find what I was looking for, so I apologize if this has been covered.
I'm also only half-way through the book but wanted to start getting a handle on my email between opportunities to read. And I guess this is more a matter of opinion, than hard fact (unless it's covered later in the book).
My situation is that I have a few email addresses: a Yahoo address that I've had for 12 years and everyone knows me at, a Gmail address that was used for a specific purpose the last few years but I'm considering using more now due to my Android phone, and then a few others that aren't worth mentioning. I have work email, too, but if I receive something personal that I want to follow-up on later, I always forward it to one of the two web mail accounts.
In regards to the Yahoo account, I also have Outlook on my home PC connected to this, which I launch every once in a while to download and archive the emails. I don't know why I thought it would be better/more secure this way but, at the time, I did. Now, however, I'm wondering if I should be leaving my emails server-side so that I can access them from anywhere (work, home, phone, etc).
So that, if I haven't confused you, is my question. Do y'all leave your personal/web-based emails on the server and organize them accordingly there, or do you download them all to Outlook (or another centralized utility) and only work on them from home?
Thank you for your insight
