5 alternative email services to Gmail or Yahoo (and what they offer you)

Kathryn Roquette



Are you tired of using the same email as everyone you know?

Do not like to depend on Google or one of the big technology companies?

There is life beyond Gmail, Yahoo, Outlook and the most popular mail servers.

We tell you other alternatives that work well and you can use.


ProtonMail is a free and encrypted email service, valued for protecting privacy to the maximum.

If you use this email, your messages will be protected from hackers and data theft, among other dangers.

To create an account you do not have to provide any personal information, so it can be completely anonymous.

It was created by three computer scientists from CERN, the European Council for Nuclear Research, and its servers are in Switzerland.

The basic version has 1 GB of storage.


Zoho Mail is an email focused on the business world, created by a company specialized in collaborative work.

Presents an option to integrate all the email accounts of other services.

It also allows you to share drafts of emails for someone to review before sending them.

And it offers a free personal version with many possibilities.

It also contains the functions of calendar, tasks, notes, and markers.

GMX Mail

GMX (Global Message Exchange) is one of the most popular internet services in Europe, with more than 20 million active users in Austria, France, Germany, the United Kingdom, Spain, and Switzerland.

This server is free and has the advantage of offering unlimited storage space, as well as being able to send very heavy files as attachments of up to 50 MB.

It also allows you to centralize several accounts on a single platform, as well as the ability to encrypt emails with the PGP (Pretty Good Privacy) standard.

If you decide to open an account here, you can easily make the emails of Gmail and Outlook arrive at this address, explains the specialized website ComputerHoy .

The application is available in Spanish for iOS and Android.


Like GMX, Tutanota is created in Germany, although it has a Spanish version.

Tutanota is inspired by Latin and consists of the expressions “tuta” and “nota”, which means, according to the company itself, “safe message”.

For that reason, in its page it is defined as “the safest mail in the world”.

Tutanota is an open source service and has applications for Android and iOS.

It has a free service with storage capacity of 1GB, a Premium of 12 euros (about US $ 13) and a Pro of 60 euros (about US $ 67).

It is a service that is based exclusively on renewable energies for all email systems.

Apple Mail

This is the email service offered by Apple and, therefore, only serves your devices.

As explained on the specialized Tom’s Guide page , Apple Mail is very simple and has a nice design.

It is suitable for devout people of this brand or for those who want a very simple service , but not so much to be used for business issues.
