What is the best free email account google, thunderbird, etc for apple mail?
I would personally say GMail, although apparently some people have trouble setting it up. Has worked flawlessly for me. Plus, since it's relatively newer, every $@#@ single screenname hasn't already been taken, so you're not driven to being tim_1978.x.156342.OMG.WTF@gmail.com. Although, to be honest, I didn't get my first choice.
I concur. Gmail is fast, easy, simple, and above all - functional .
They have directions on how to set it up with Mail, too, so it shouldn't be too hard.
gmail. works great
Bluebottle worked well for me, but they are not taking new people right now.
As I'm sure you know, any POP email provider will work. You can try a Google search for "free pop email" and take your pick.
Gmail from Google (as the others have endorsed) is very good.
Thunderbird is not an email provider. Its a program from Mozilla that allows you to check your mail. It does baically the same thing that Apple Mail does.
Gmail is awesome. Very fast, way faster than using the web browser. Just remember to enable POP in your prefs...
Another for GMail. It is amazing that they offer POP3 with the whole point being targeted advertising. But the important thing is they do, so GMail is the way to go!
Yeah, another vote for gmail, unless your internet provider provides email for you, then I would probably use them. I love my Comcast account. But for free accounts go for gmail.
Notes: PM me if you want an invite. Just include some sort of email address. I know it's somewhat public, but some people still have trouble getting an account.
another recommendation for GMail as well, its great, i actually have three accounts there, its easy to set up with Mail as well (they give you instructions) its a sweet free email service
True! Another point in GMail's favor is that they (unlike, *cough* Yahoo and MS!) have no track record of offering a feature for free and then later making it a premium option.
How intrusive are the target ads and how do they work? Because it is free is it secure?
For GMail? Not at all...
