Free Online Email - A guide to online email services that are available all for free. There are a multitude of free online email services available on the web. Here are the best of the bunch - make your own choice or use them all and get yourself a free email address. What is interesting (as you will see) is that I could not access some of the sites - this could be critical to you - so choose your free online email accordingly.
AOL / AIM - Look for the mailbox icon or mail tab and you are immediately offered a free online email address with AIM / AOL. Benefits from the free AOL email service include unlimited email storage, the ability to access Your e-mail from anywhere including email from your mobile 'phone or pda.
Care2 - You need to join the Care2 community to get access to the free online email which comes with 5GB of online storage. Care2 is a community that aim to make a difference in healthy and green living, human rights and animal welfare. Lots of information on how to live healthy and go green.
FastMail - Easy sign up and the free online email service from Fastmail is supported by advertrising and taglines added to emails. There is the opportunity to pay for an ad-free email service with enhanced services and online storage. Free email is readily accessible from the Fastmail homepage.
Gawab - A free online email service that offers a whopping 10 gigabyte of online storage. Gawab is based in the middle-east and the name Gawab originates from the Arabic word for letter. There is direct sign-up from the main page.
Gmail - The Google company free online email offering is well established and currently offers 2GB of free storage with more available to purchase. The Google mail service allows you to never delete emails but, rather, archive them and then use the Google proprietary search to find any archived email you need to refer to in the future. Another benefit of signing up for a free Google emaol account is that you will then get access to the many other online services offered by Google which require a sign-in to access.
GMX Mail - This free online email service from GMX Webmail offers 5 GB of E-Mail Storage Space. GMX state they have ovwer 10 million users so they are oneof the bigger players in the free online email arena. One thing I didn't like when visiting and reviewing this email service is that they have a statement on their main page (Feb 2009) that states: "To take full advantage of GMX we recommend dowloading Internet Explorer 7, Firefox 3 or Safari 3." I'm not keen on changing my browser to access ANY website (I use Opera) and from this statement I would have concerns about usability for the free email service for people using screen-readers and the like. Anyway, it is free and you can find out if it is right for you by giving it a try.
Hotmail - Nowadays to use the Windows free online Hotmail email service you have to sign up to, and agree to, the Windows Live service. This might not be right for you if all you are looking for is an online free email service but the Windows Live login give you access to lots of other Microsoft offerings. Hotmail is an ad supported service and there is the option to upgrade for payment and get an email account free of advertising.
Hotpop - Title for this free online email offering on Google states "Leading provider of premium and free POP email and SMTP access since 1998". The problen I had when trying to access the service (March 1st 2009) was this: "Service Temporarily Unavailable The server is temporarily unable to service your request due to maintenance downtime or capacity problems. Please try again later. Apache/1.3.26 Server at www.hotpop.com Port 80". Now, this could clearly be very irritating when you have limited time or access to a computer and need to check your email NOW! The online email service from Hot Pop is free so you can't ask for your money back.... :-) I was unable to review the site due to not getting access.
Inbox - I found the Inbox free online email easy to siign up for and easy to use. One thing I noticed was I immediate received commercial email into my newly set up inbox, so this is apparently how Inbox.Com funds the free email service. Email comes with free online storage and a desktop email notifier.
Lavabit - Lavabit offers a basic email account and a personal email account which are both free. There is the option to upgrade to more storage for your online email account with Lava Bit but this costs money. Lavabit state that their free email service is so secure that even the LavaBit email adminstrators cannot read users email. A service if you value your online privacy.
Mail - Another free online email service powered by Ask.Com. Free Email Account, 3GB Storage, Spam and Virus Protection. A good choice for personalized free web-based email.
Myway - My Way is a web portal and search engine like Yahoo!, but without any banners, pop-ups or spam. Myway is powered by Ask.Com and offers a free online email service that includes 125MB storage.
Yahoo - Another site I was unable to review, apparently not working in Opera. I'm very, very cautious about recommending websites that are not standards compliant - what if I need to check my email and can't access the latest computer or browser? Anyway, Yahoo mail has been around a while and probably offers a service comparable to Gmail or Hotmail - check it out for yourself! (The free email icon is at the top of the main Yahoo landing page).
Zenbe - This free online email that works with the email you already use. Zenbe offers many features, including email, online calendar, lists, mobile sync, file sharing, team collaboration. It even works with Facebook and Twitter.
