      Editors_Review Posteo is amazing and the best private email service with great features, but you have to pay for it. ProtonMail offers free encrypted webmail.

      This alternative is disputed. Gmail is still a legitimate alternative to Posteo, but it might have issues that some users think are important.
      Not private and secure, Google spies on you.

      Editors_Review Posteo offers encrypted email. Gmail does not. This is a fundamental difference in services. In one (posteo), your email is private. In the order (gmail) your email is scanned, saved, then crunched by artificial intelligence to be used to manipulate the end user.

      Posteo is a 'Secure' Email service. All Google products including Gmail are data farming tools that gather user habits and tendencies for marketing purposes.
