Yahoo Mail is pretty bad. HotMail is not so hot. We like Gmail but it can take some getting used to. Some of you don’t like Gmail because it’s different. To each his own.
Yahoo Mail charges for Pop3/IMAP access. Yes we know there are ways around this but none of them are very good. Hotmail can be accessed via Windows Live Mail but that’s a problem for some. Gmail can be accessed from just about any email program on any device – smartphone, tablet, computer, laptop. netbook, PDA.
Now there’s a new game in town. It’s called GMX. Why? We don’t know. It just is. We’ve tested it and it really is very nice. If you’re looking for alternatives to Yahoo Mail, Hotmail and Gmail – you might really like GMX. It allows you to access your email with almost any email program (Outlook, Windows Live Mail, Windows Mail, IncrediMail, Thunderbird, Eudora, etc. and really nice setup instructions are included) free of charge. Plus GMX gives you unlimited spaced for your email and you can send and receive attachments up to 50MB. You can access your other email accounts in GMX too. But the icing on the cake is that it’s free – and the filling in the cake is that you can create up to ten “aliases” for every GMX account you create.
You know, no one can tell you more about GMX than those who created GMX. So we’re going to let them close out this ramble right now, or PDQ and GMX may say:
