    • Mailbox is an excellent Yahoo! Mail alternative: it doesn't violate your privacy, it hasn't had 100s of millions of its accounts hacked and it didn't write scripts searching all customers' accounts for keywords for the FBI. However, it DOES have: a nice interface, calendar and contacts and encryption integration. Also hosted in Germany (better privacy laws) and supports 2FA.

Advantages: 500 Disposable Adresses, free UNLIMITED Storage -1 Helpful

Comment by em4020
about Yahoo! Mail and Microsoft Office Outlook, AOL Mail Jun 2011

Advantages of Yahoo! Mail:

  • 500 Disposable Adresses, free UNLIMITED Storage space:
    The main advantage of Yahoo-Mail are the max. 500 "Disposable E-Mail-Addresses", which you can change or create very easy, if you are flooded with Spam-Mails, or if you want to avoid the danger to be flooded for certain purposes.
  • Unfortunatelly no direct link for very rapid editing these flexible Mail-Addresses:
    http://de.mg40.mail.yahoo.com/neo/launch?.rand=5dt7r4450ptl5#

Disadvantages of Yahoo! Mail:

  • No IMAP,
  • sending away from "Disposable Address" only from Web-Interface,
  • no POP3-access via email client:
    Sending away from an Yahoo-"Disposable Address" is only possible from Yahoo-Mail Web-Interface, not from Mozilla Thunderbird.
    The ability to access Yahoo! Mail via a POP3 email client (such as Outlook or Outlook Express) is only available to customers of the premium Yahoo! Mail Plus service ( $19.99 per year).
    If you have not purchased the Yahoo! Mail Plus service, you will be unable to retrieve messages via an email client: http://bit.ly/2ZTKRh, http://bit.ly/1a6bx0.
  • Yahoo! Mail as well as Yahoo! Mail Plus do not support IMAP access from other Mail-Clients: http://bit.ly/2jVtNX .
  • The only Free-Mail service with UNLIMITED storage AND POP3- AND IMAP support seems to be AOL-Mail.
