What is The Best Alternative to Gmail?

by tagiscom 42 replies
Hi, all,

l am thinking about getting a new email account?

I already have a Gmail account and after hearing about the nightmares others have had with their Youtube channel and their Gmail account l think that it is best to get another account which is the next best thing to Gmail.

This account is purely for business, so ease of access, etc like Gmail would be great, just not sure which account is almost as good as Gmail.

    As Gmail is a product of Google.....and Google is the king... I think there is no substitute for Gmail in my opinion otherwise Yahoo is also good choice.

    I first started with Gmail, switched over to Yahoo. Now I'm back to Gmail again. I still prefer Gmail for its simplistic interface. Its easier to manage your preferences and settings in Gmail as compared to Yahoo.

    To add on, Gmail also allows you to manage email addresses under your .com domain

    Yahoo is okay especially now because they're deleting all the accounts which are not in use. I've been using Gmail and Yahoo for a long time and had no issue with them

    Never a hotmail - cause they're lots of spam

    Hope this help

    God Bless,

      Thanks for your comments.

      Hmmmmm, l used to have a Yahoo account but tended to use Gmail, so it was eventually deleted.

      I also have a Hotmail account, which is more of an account l would post online, because its less user friendly than Gmail, and has annoying ad's.

      Anyone here tried to start a second Gmail account?

      If so, did you have any issues with it, like it messed up your Youtube, channel optin settings, etc?

    I agree with the previous post about hotmail.

    I once had a hotmail account but stopped using it
    because the spam was out of control.

    That was 2 years ago....so to be fair, hotmail could
    be alot better now then it was before.

    Too tell the truth, I have never have any severe problem with Gmail account. At least, it was not like the joke service at yahoo and hotmail. Gmail has been really awesome all this while, and it is free :-)

    What kind of problem you have with them?

    While I myself prefer Gmail, hotmail and AOL are decent alternatives. You could also just register a domain and use that as your email, provided of course you have hosting.

      Wow.. I'm surprised (and interested) to see a few complaints about Hotmail as I have been using it for 5+ years and would usually highly recommend it. I can't say how it compares to Gmail though, as I have an aversion to anything google :p and so have never tried it.

      Now that people mention it, there is an ad down one side in Hotmail, but I don't often notice it. I have my flash player disabled 99% of the time, so that may be one reason why it doesn't bother me (a flash ad would be distracting for sure)

      As for spam - some of my hotmail accounts get a lot of it, and others get none. I think it usually depends on where I have used each email address, and/or how easy it is to guess it.. eg [name]@hotmail.com is going to get spammed :rolleyes: When I do get spam, hotmail does a great job of sorting it into the junk folder, and it is rare that anything I want ends up in there. I use the 'sweep' function to block all junk folder addresses at once, and sometimes will manually add a domain name to the block list too. Really simple to keep on top of it, but once again I am not sure how that compares to other email providers.

    Gmail is the way to go; I personally do not see any alternative. Yahoo, Hotmail, are all bloatware, and the spam filters are execrable. Plus, Gmail is native on Android; I couldn't do without it.

    The new yahoo is pretty decent, but there is no acceptable substitute to Google in my opinion.
