    • Protonmail is free, open-source, encrypted (more private). Lacks: calendar & good contacts feature, but these are in the pipeline. Protonmail cannot by design data-mine your software for it's own profit; Gmail makes it's money by violating your privacy that way. JohnFastmanDec 2016 • 4 agrees and 0 disagrees Disagree   Agree

    • ProtonMail is wonderful. It's intended for professional and small-scale personal use though. Free accounts only get 500 mb storage, so it's not an all-purpose email platform like Gmail. TheCEOofDoodleCoJun 2017 • 1 agrees and 1 disagrees Disagree   Agree

    • 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). Guest • Jul 2017 • 0 agrees and 1 disagrees Disagree   Agree

    • Lightweight GUI to the browser and the user, fast, secure and can manage custom domains. yieldMar 2016 • 3 agrees and 1 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • Tutanota is the best choice, because it is simple and run by an awesome team. Even the Premium prices are very affordable. onuniJan 2017 • 2 agrees and 0 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • Tutanota is a good Gmail replacement for most of the same reasons Protonmail is: Your email is stored encrypted on Tutanota servers in a way that neither they nor any potential hackers can decipher it. This means your emails can't be scanned to profile you and sell your private information for profit, which is how Gmail makes its money. Tutanota also enables encrypted email communication which Gmail does not. It's user friendly and more features are on the way. JohnFastmanDec 2016 • 3 agrees and 2 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • I've tried some encrypted emails to replace Gmail, it turned out that Tutanota is perfect. All services accepted it without any problems, all messages arrived fast and the free plan gives 1GB of space. Also, the paid plans are generous and cheap. marriemullerDec 2017 Disagree   Agree

    • Zoho Mail provides almost as many features as Gmail while not scanning your emails for ADs services. rickyipcwMar 2016 • 2 agrees and 0 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • 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 ( is listed on none, *none* (0 of 130) DNSBL (DNS Blacklist)! While the sending IP addess of Gmail ( is listed on 8/130 Spam Filter Lists, because Gmail is being misused by a lot of Spamers!

GMail Search now searches simultaneously in all Mails and in all Google Docs
GMail Labs offers a new very useful & unique feature(1):
Google Apps search (in GMail) (from the Google Apps team) is an Advanced Search to search simultaneously in all your Google Emails and Google Docs and Google Sites. The Google Apps search quickly finds the most relevant documents and websites and displays them on the Gmail search results together with the matching EMails.
This is a unique service, where Google is many steps ahead compared with all other EMail-services showing Googles leadership and creativity in innovative internet technologies.
Features other Mail-Services, which I miss with " Google Mail" (2,3):
Since the possibility of changing the order of the email filters (4) is missing, I manually must position the last filters, which emails automatically forward to other addresses dependently of labels, which were assigned in other filters, by repeated storing to the last place again and again.
Changing of bad subject headings in received emails for easier finding E-Mails again is not possible (5).
Storing of emails as text file is only possible over the detour "Save Frame as", however the text of mails is changed by using this method (6).

I refreshed this website 2 times at 21:27, and then I saw my comment 3 times with time stamp 14:57 instead 1 x with stamp after 20:00. There must be a bug in the software. Now it is 22:00 in Austria. Let us see, what the time stamp will be.

I personally dont care for this email. It does good, but the attachments dont attach until you send an email.. so if it has a problem while attaching you have to resend your email again after fixing it. it does pretty good, and has some nice features, but I am not really impressed. I do like that it has POP account, that is the only highpoint for me.

the best, hands down. Don't bother with any other webmail platform.

Gmail works well on its own, but even better is the Google Apps for your Domain implementation, along with the other Google offerings.
