Listening Yahoo! email in ERAS

I am using a Yahoo! email and I heard that ERAS and program directors will not like it! Is that true!
If it is true then what email I should use

Please advise

Info Better to avoid Yahoo!

Athough there's no sound technical reason for not using Yahoo! email for your correspondance with residency program directors and ERAS there's generally a public dislike of the Yahoo! email.

I personally believe it's due to too much spam that's coming out of Yahoo! email.

I suggest you use either or as better replacements.

But most importantly, be consistent and use always the same email.

Another advice is choose a wise username. I mean a username such as a strongboy or fantasticgirl do not look professional and PDs may laugh at it.
