      Advik Tutanota is end-to-end encrypted, as well offers 1 GB mail storage on free plan. The pro plans are cheap compared to protonmail, so it's better for low budget users

      UltraProgrammer Tutanota has historically been a lot more transparent, and arguably has been more honest about issues and plans

      android037 I use both, ProtonMail is more secure but also more expensive and not as user-friendly. You cannot beat the price of Tutanota for service they provide.

    3. Web- and IMAP-based email service. 2GB cost 1€/month. Information is hosted on encrypted hard drives. Electricity from renewable resources is used.
      Posteo vs ProtonMail opinions
      Almost everyone thinks Posteo is a great alternative to ProtonMail.
      JohnFastman Posteo could be a good Protonmail alternative. It offers email encryption in a similar way: Posteo's people, government surveillance and successful hackers won't get into your email content. It also offers a calendar feature, which protonmail users have been crying out for for years.

    4. We believe that Internet privacy is an absolute and definitive right. Online privacy matters and is just as important as offline privacy. Some people say that the loss of privacy is the price we must pay for security.

      Excellent integrated business features. Works as a webmail client for many e-mail addresses hosted from different servers/locations (the paid versions). Perfect alternative to ProtonMail for business users!

      PhmNguynHngThnh Mailfence offers more functionality than Proton mail with Calendar, Document, Chat, and Group functionality. Moreover, the price is much lower than other competitors.

    5. 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. They have been operating e-mail accounts for more than 20 years and are a highly reliable service provider.
      mailbox.org vs ProtonMail opinions
      Almost everyone thinks mailbox.org is a great alternative to ProtonMail.
      JohnFastman Mailbox.org is a partial replacement for Protonmail. It offers a fully functional email solution (email, calendar, contacts), but with the added benefits of PGP encryption support (you can handle the keys or let them do it). It also allows you to send links to people who don't use PGP if you want to send private messages. For the encryption, it's a bit like Protonmail. For everything else, it's like a privacy-respecing Gmail alternative.

      Almost everyone thinks Cock.li is a great alternative to ProtonMail.
    7. Zoho Mail is an integrated email suite for modern enterprises, complete with Calendar, Notes, Tasks, Contacts, and Bookmarks.
      Zoho Mail vs ProtonMail opinions
      This alternative is disputed. Zoho Mail is still a legitimate alternative to ProtonMail, but it might have issues that some users think are important.
      JohnFastman The whole point of switching to an encrypted email provider (Protonmail, Tutanota, etc.) is to avoid the prying eyes of the company's techies, government surveillance and hackers to breach the servers. Zoho Mail doesn't encrypt your email, so it doesn't offer that security or privacy.

    8. Vivaldi Mail is a free email service with no ads and no strings attached developed by Vivaldi Technologies.
      Vivaldi Mail vs ProtonMail opinions
      pros, cons and recent comments
      JohnFastman Vivaldi mail offers PGP-based email encryption, similar to Protonmail. But the web client is much less well developed. However, unlike Protonmail (at the time of writing), they allow you to import your own PGP keys, which is nice (a feature Protonmail users have been demanding for years).
