    • It has great encryption and is very easy to switch to. Would totally recommend! Guest • 5 days ago Disagree   Agree
    • Open source secure and private and if you you forgot your password you can reset it but you wil not be able to see your old emails that is helpfull when you are forced to open your emails Guest • 12 days ago Disagree   Agree
    • More secure, and still offers free accounts. lazysami00Apr 2019 • 9 agrees and 2 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • its not by google and its private and it isnt profiling you and collecting and selling your data and discriminating against you for your political views Guest • Aug 2018 • 1 agrees and 0 disagrees Disagree   Agree

    • Open-source. Free. Encrypted. Web, iOS, Android, macOS (WIP), and Windows (WIP). What more do you need? YhvrWasTakenFeb 2020 • 1 agrees and 0 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • The only issue of ProtonMail is slow development of new features. Everything except this is awesome. Support is efficient, clear and quick, the best I've found anywhere, yet. xplosionmindFeb 2020 Disagree   Agree
    • An Absolutely Perfect fix and permanent replacement to the lack of security and privacy that Gmail Offers. GMAIL TRACKS YOUR EVERY EMAIL. With ProtonMail every Message is encrypted so that only you and the message receiver are able to view the message. Guest • Jul 2018 • 1 agrees and 0 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • Privacy focused and easy to use. You can also redirect your domain name emails to ProtonMail its paid service but ProtonMail is worth paying for! MogsterNov 2019 Disagree   Agree
    • Does not support POP/IMAP, forget about using it on Thunderbird or your favorite email client. Guest • Jul 2019 • 14 agrees and 19 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • 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 • 20 agrees and 6 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • The safety is the number one reason. The features you will get, some will cost a very little money (as a student I think its totally affordable) for example; End-to-End Encryption, make the emails with a timer disappear and no need for email or phone number to sign up. mirstilOct 2019 Disagree   Agree
    • Built-in encryption and open source? what else could you ask for? Guest • Feb 2017 • 18 agrees and 6 disagrees Disagree   Agree

    • Protonmail is encrypted, has a (limited but not so much) free version, is open source and user friendly Guest • Apr 2018 • 0 agrees and 1 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • Because it respects privacy and it's faster than Gmail. Guest • Jun 2017 • 3 agrees and 3 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 • 2 agrees and 1 disagrees Disagree   Agree

    Tutanota is a free and open source web-mail client that focuses on privacy and security. It has open source iOS and an Android apps. The Android app is published on...

    • Does not support POP/IMAP, you will not be able to use it with Thunderbird or another email client. Guest • Jul 2019 • 20 agrees and 6 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • Privacy-respecting company, and has open source client RemovedUserAug 2020 • 1 agrees and 0 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • 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 :) justinterestedJan 2019 • 8 agrees and 1 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • Very nice minimalist ui and great security features Guest • Nov 2019 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 • 6 agrees and 0 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • This is a very good free client. It gives you lots of functionality even at no cost. Guest • Jan 2018 • 2 agrees and 0 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 • 6 agrees and 1 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 • 8 agrees and 3 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • Lightweight GUI to the browser and the user, fast, secure and can manage custom domains. yieldMar 2016 • 5 agrees and 2 disagrees Disagree   Agree

    • Outlook is the Microsoft equivalent of Gmail. jeanchristophe2Apr 2018 • 5 agrees and 3 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • 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. Guest • Apr 2017 • 3 agrees and 0 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 • 2 agrees and 1 disagrees Disagree   Agree

  • Fastmail

    Email, calendars, and contacts to highest standards of security, privacy and reliability.

    • 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. Guest • Mar 2018 • 2 agrees and 0 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • 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. JohnFastmanDec 2016 • 9 agrees and 2 disagrees Disagree   Agree

  • Posteo

    Web- and IMAP-based email service. 2GB cost 1€/month. Information is hosted on encrypted hard drives. Electricity from renewable resources is used.

    • 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. lazysami00Apr 2019 • 3 agrees and 1 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • Very comprehensive privacy, affordable price and sustainable practice. Also provide interface for notes, calendars and contacts sync. RemovedUserApr 2018 • 3 agrees and 0 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • Posteo has very good data encryption and privacy. Guest • Feb 2018 • 3 agrees and 0 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • 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. ArianaMar 2017 • 2 agrees and 3 disagrees Disagree   Agree

  • Zoho Mail

    Zoho Mail is a webmail service built with the needs of a modern business in mind. It provides features for business users to communicate effectively while catering to...

    • 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. Wagn3rAug 2017 • 5 agrees and 4 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • Zoho Mail provides almost as many features as Gmail while not scanning your emails for ADs services. rickyipcwMar 2016 • 4 agrees and 2 disagrees Disagree   Agree

  • mailbox.org

    mailbox.org offers a secure e-mail account for home and business use. The domain name, me@mailbox.org, is easy to remember and can be understood anywhere in the world....

    • 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. madmonkJan 2019 • 4 agrees and 1 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • 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).

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.

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