My personal preference is Outlook.com for my e mail needs. I access my Outlook.com and GMX.com (ever hear of GMX ?) e mail accounts via Thunderbird. I also have a couple older Hotmail addresses, a GMail account and a Rochester.RR account that I very seldom use. I have the YMail account only for the Fantasy Racing league team that I am on during the NASCAR season. When I go to check my YMail account I never see ads there because the Adblock Plus extension in my Firefox browser takes care of that.
