I need a new email – which email provider should I choose?

Anonymous December 22, 2013

Currently with Comcast but going to be cutting that out as my condo building is providing free Wi-Fi to the building. This necessitates dropping my email with Comcast, so I’m looking for a new provider.

Recommendations? Pros/cons?

    I, personally, LOVE Bluetie. Ok, I guess they do not have the same name recognition as Gmail, or Yahoo. But you can actually talk to a live person for help, and they were the first business email company. Gmail interface is not so great, and Yahoo has some issues lately. Good luck!

    http://www.keepyouremailprivate.com/ - Microsoft (outlook.com) attacking Gmail.

    Yes, GMAIL scans to serve "context based" ads, and if that bothers you, then you need something else. NB. the Google lineup is on a single account, so if you use Google+, Youtube login, Android (PLAY) Store or any other Google property, you probably already have a GMAIL account.

    The "big guns" are GMAIL, Live/Hotmail/Outlook.com, Yahoo mail (wouldn't recommend, as the response to leaks / compromise has been very weak), AOL Mail.

    The other thing, do you want webmail or a pop/smtp client - some of the smaller ones are only webmail, or do not offer pop/smtp on the free service - for instance, MAIL.COM have a nice range of email domain names to choose from, but the free service does not include pop3.

    GMX is also a good provider especially if you are worried about G-brother aka Google snooping your emails trying to sell products. That's the reason I recommended outlook.com than gmail. Also keep in mind you can subvert Google and other pesky ads, by using "Adblock Edge" and "Ghostery" browser add-on's.

    you must use gmail.com or Outlook.com .Because they are trustful.

    I personally like GMail best. Very powerful, very flexible and very secure. That said, Outlook.com does have a nice interface, and GMX (a German company) also has an excellent service which feels very much like a desktop application, so get an account on each and try them out for yourself!

      Very nice suggestion...you'd think I would have just thought of that on my own, thanks

    The tried and trusted Gmail never fails! That too has a neat interface.

    I like new outlook.com (www.outlook.com aka http://www.live.com). Great neat interface. Very customizable compared to other services.
