According to Internet analytics firm comScore, Gmail has finally overtaken Hotmail as the world's top email service. Gmail enjoys 287.9 million unique worldwide visitors during the month of October, versus Hotmail's 286.2 million.

Yahoo Mail came in third place with 281.7 million active users in October, and despite its third position in world ranking, they are still number one in the US. With 76.7 million active users in the US, versus Gmail's 69.1 million and Hotmail's 35.5 million.
