Too late for what?
Seriously, what are the perils of email that anything could exist that I "wouldn't regret until it's too late."
The major one is you lose all your emails when your webmail provider shuts down.
I have a yahoo account that I use basically as a spam catching address. I access it via a mail client, though, so never have to deal with the web interface.
