Just wondering what email providers you guys use and why?


I am looking to change my email account and looking for a new good secure email,


I am really looking for opinions and suggestions outside of "the norm"...yahoo, hotmail, gmail, live, etc etc....

           You really need to define what "good secure email" means to you.   Clearly you don't wish to use any of "the big, free services" but beyond that it's very difficult for anyone to advise you accurately without knowing just how "tight" you want the security to be.

Well after Gmail and Outlook.com, there is also ProtonMail and that has many good privacy features if you need it.

I use mail.com and they work out pretty good for me. 5 GB email space, file hosting, proper alias addresses and good email domains (like @email.com etc.)... POP3/IMAP is supported despite the fact they listed it as premium feature.

ProtonMail, Tutanota, and Riseup are all good suggestions as a more secure alternative.

Have you tried turning it off and back on? :P
