Best Free Email Accounts


You probably got one email account from your internet or hosting provider. But is it the best webmail account you can get? Yes, everybody have Gmail account and Outlook, but there are other email providers. Maybe you want a separate account for newsletters you are subscribed for.

Email account

No problem, you can get it, and you can choose from many different domains ( you@ugly.com, you@mail.com, you@president.net ...).

The best email service?

It depends on your needs. Apart from the basic things like an address book or web-based access, there are other things to look for. Look for SSL/TLS support, a lot of storage space and forwarding and sorting options.

Do you plan to use your new account on more devices? Like the computer and phone? Or do you prefer an email client on your desktop? Then check the supported protocols.

  • POP3 - by default it downloads all email to your computer and leaves nothing on the server. But you can also configure it to keep messages on the server.
  • IMAP - modern and better option if you want to access your account from several devices. It downloads only a copy of the email to your device and keeps the original message on the server. Plus, if you'll have to reinstall your computer, no need to backup emails, you'll just redownload from server.

Do you want/need to use a custom domain?

If so, the best way will be to set up a cheap hosting account (I can recommend Hawkhost) and point your domain there.
