      Very nice minimalist ui and great security features
      Positive comment over 1 year ago

      justinterested Tutanota is a great email provider with very good encryption (it uses end-to-end encryption like Signal – i.e. they cannot read your emails/gife them to the government, Gmail can!) and they don't sell any data. It is also very easy to use, it has a very nice app, a desktop client and a web client. There is really no reason why you wouldn't want to use it :)

      This is a very good free client. It gives you lots of functionality even at no cost.

      It lets you create alias under the same account and is a better email client if you use Microsoft Office. Incoming mails can be better classified and is more proffesional.

      jeanchristophe2 Outlook is the Microsoft equivalent of Gmail.

      Outlook is better for privacy
      Positive comment about 1 year ago

      Very powerful, and well integrated to all my devices (iPhone, iPad, Mac…). I like the alias features, which allows me to use alternative addresses for some activities (I set a rule so they arrive in a different folder).

      Fastmail vs Gmail
      pros, cons and recent comments
      JohnFastman Fastmail is an Australian email company that is a complete Gmail killer: 1) You pay with money, not your privacy (they don't data-mine or sell your data); 2) Full replacement for email, calendar, contact - including mobile app. 3) 2 factor authentication (Yubikey & others), infinite catch-all email addresses, file storage. Brilliant Gmail replacement.
      Positive comment over 4 years ago

      FastMail is the most professional mail service out there, the only problem with FastMail over Gmail is that they do not have good html template support yet, besides that, Gmail does not stand a chance.

      Posteo has very good data encryption and privacy.
      Positive comment about 3 years ago

      RemovedUser The most secure and private email on the market. As such, there is not free version. This is a good thing, it means they are not making money with your information.
      Positive comment about 2 years ago

      Ariana Love Posteo - very good encryption and very affordable: you pay with money, not with your data. If they also supported own domains, I'd move my professional mail there as well.

      Wagn3r Zoho delivers everything GMail does + more! If you setup a free business account you have awesome spam control capabilities. + The sending IP address of Zoho Mail (135.84.80.217) is listed on none, *none* (0 of 130) DNSBL (DNS Blacklist)! While the sending IP addess of Gmail (209.85.128.173) is listed on 8/130 Spam Filter Lists, because Gmail is being misused by a lot of Spamers! This easily results into your Email NOT getting received at your destination!!! I am speaking from experience.

      madmonk Best Gmail replacement at the moment. You get all the suite functions like the calendar, address book, cloud space, apps for a fair cheap price and the priceless privacy policy and encryption without losing IMAP capabilities as with some even more privacy focused email providers like Protonmail and Tutanota.
      Positive comment over 2 years ago

      Privacy oriented, good value for money, multiple e-mail aliases, works well with Thunderbird
      Positive comment 5 months ago

      JohnFastman At the moment, Mailbox.org is probably the best Gmail alternative: 1) You pay for the service with money, not your privacy (no data mining), 2) Excellent integration of encryption, 3) excellent Calendar and Contacts (not on mobile yet), 4) Yubikey 2FA, 5) Data stored in Germany (better privacy laws).
