What is Gmail?

Gmail is a free search-based web-mail service. It offers a full featured web-based email client with search capabilities, a mailbox with Pop and IMAP access, SPAM protection, display of email threads as conversations, a labeling and filtering system, an integrated chat, 15 GB of free storage, etc.

With the Gmail app you get: • An organized inbox - Social and promotional messages are sorted into categories so you can read messages from friends and family first. • Less spam - Gmail blocks spam before it hits your inbox to keep your account safe and clutter free. • Multiple account support - Use both Gmail and non-Gmail addresses (Outlook.com, Yahoo Mail, or any other IMAP/POP email) right from the app.

Best free email service, easy to access, reliable, fast and most comfortable. Gmail has very thorough malware and virus checking. Gmail offers a one-stop portal for calendaring, file storage, photo hosting, Youtube, blogging, financial advice, and more. 10+ GB of email storage space and 25 MB per email capacity.

it's the easiest email platform that I have ever used. I have been using it since 10 years ago (or more) and I haven't seen a better alternative for it yet.

Gmail (and Google) is "free" because it harvests your private information, scans your emails, contacts, and collates this against your use of YouTube, Chrome, your browsing habits, Google Drive contents, websites you visit and adverts you click... everything... The amount of information collected is massive, creepy and you'll never undo it. If a person followed you around collecting this information you'd think it was the creepiest thing.

Worse still, this information is stored on Google servers, which can be hacked or supboenad. You also have no idea who will own that information in 10 or 20 years time, how it can be used against you or other people it contains information about, or under which legal jurisdiction.

Others who may have never agreed to Gmail/Google's Terms & Conditions (including perhaps for privacy reasons), have the content of their emails scanned if they send stuff to a Gmail address. All of that is also true for Yahoo! Mail, Outlook.com/Hotmail and Yahoo! (And some others.)

Want to improve your privacy online? I recommend this as a start.

That's a good start. Then follow the info on www.privacytools.io for further advice.

Awesome list. Thanks for sharing! Switched from Google search to Qwant recently, works just as nicely.

For secure emails you could also add Tutanota. The entire mailbox is encrypted, plus it's open source.

Yes, Tutanota is end-to-end encrypted and open source. Better still, they are currently testing the beta version of their new interface, which looks awesome, judging from the screenshots. They also promised a calendar in 2017; I hope they can deliver that and attract even more people away from Gmail.

Better Privacy is NOT open source --- and is now discontinued.

Fastmail seems suspicious, because I don't trust women with coloured hair in a top position in a company. In my experience, they are most likely to be far-left leaning people who contribute to the censorship, and privacy violation when someone doesn't respect their ideologies. If these particular people are not like that, then sorry about that, but I am not sure I can still trust. In animal kingdom this is called , Aposematism, which means the use of a signal and especially a visual signal of conspicuous markings or bright colours by an animal to warn other animals that it is toxic or distasteful.

Gmail users have little control over their emails. Don't use it for anything serious in your life. I cannot tell details here.
