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 :confused:

Please advise

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 gmail.com or live.com 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.
