      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 :)

      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.

      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).

      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.
