what are some good sites for free email accounts?
In order of preference. my top five are
Don't you have to be invited at gmail?
If you're just looking for a simple e-mail account:
But if you're looking for more:
Oh, and you can get them to send you an invite by sending them a text message via cell phone: https://www.google.com/accounts/SmsMailSignup1
PM me your email address and I will gladly send you an invite.
Donna, I've had a Yahoo account for over a decade and have enjoyed it. The SPAM filter works well, plenty of room for storage, and will download to my Outlook. If you have questions, feel free to PM and I can get specific.
I also have a Yahoo account, and have had it for many years, but I have to say that Gmail does a better job in my opinion with the spam and the advertisements.
Yes, Gmail has ads, but they are hardly noticed, unlike Yahoo where the screen is plastered with ads.
As far as the email functions and all go, it's a coin toss, but I think Gmail does a better job at presenting your email to you in a clean, easy to read/understand form.
Donna, sign up for them both and see which one you like better.
So I just used the cell phone link to sign up with GMail, and I'm playing around with it, and I'm thinking, "why didn't I do this sooner?!?"
The ability to send mail with the e-mail address from one of my other accounts (Juno, for example) is awesome. The only thing better would be if I could actually check my Juno e-mail through GMail.
And the ability to "download" your GMail into Outlook, Outlook Express, Thunderbird, or other programs....
Yep, the only feature missing is the ability to view your e-mail from other accounts.
I have that in a round about way... I have set my other emails to forward a copy to my Gmail account.
I then set up my Gmail account to look for email being sent to [email protected] email and then flag it and place in in a folder.
I have my companies email going this way, so if I my laptop suddenly stops working, I can access my company email from any computer while away on business.
I currently have eight different email adresses running through Gmail and it's great!
All my emails run through gmail - I have them forwarded to my main gmail account and send out of gmail using the same address.
I have a couple of church addreses, for pastor and info in a pop account - they all come through gmail and I never access those pop accounts. The only email account I ever have to check is my main gmail one. The nice thing is you can set it so that it replies from the same address it was sent to.
Whoops, just noticed Jamie's post - same idea as mine - sorry 'bout dat .
jamie, I just sent you a pm
Swap your first and second around and I'll agree with you C4K :smilewinkgrin:
Plenty of invites up sleeves here
I hope you enjoy the Gmail account as much as I do. It's a great way to go for email..
For anyone else that might need a Gmail invite, PM me, and I will gladly send one your way also!
Thanks Jamie, I signed up
I use Yahoo's Beta. Very nice interface, but it takes a little longer to load. Definitely worth the wait, though.
I have liked gmail so well that I have started using more often even for work rather than Exchange.
I too use both yahoo and gmail, but also like Juno, now that they have expanded the storage capacity. The address book works very well and is very clean and clear, with the ability to sort on different fields. www.juno.com
A lesser-known service is excite.com. I have yahoo, hotmail, gmail, and excite, and I get less spam thru gmail and excite.
