Whether you’re an artist, or a professional, or a small business owner, or a corporate, email is still one of the best (and popular) ways to communicate over the internet. There are a variety of email services (both free and paid) on the web but selecting one can be confusing due to features and pricing variation. So here are some of the best email services that you can consider in 2021.
Free Email (@gmail.com, @outlook.com, @yahoo.com)
- Gmail – The web’s most popular and powerful email service with 15 GB of free storage.
- Outlook (previously Hotmail) – Outlook.com gives you 15 GB of free storage and supports most of the features available at Gmail. However, if you are a Gmail ninja then you may find that some of your favorite Gmail features are missing on Outlook.com.
- Yahoo Mail – Yahoo offers a free 1 TB storage for your inbox. But if you compare Yahoo Mail with Gmail or Outlook.com, you will see that most of the advanced features are either missing or is part of Yahoo Mail Pro (costs $3.49/month).
- iCloud Mail – The best thing about iCloud Mail must be its email alias feature. Otherwise, iCloud offers 5 GB storage (which is shared across email, cloud, photos, backup, etc.) and it’s good only for an @icloud.com email address with all the basic features that you would expect from a webmail service.
- AOL – Only if you do not like the Big Four.
Business Email (@your-name.com, @your-company.com)
- Google Workplace (previously GSuite) – If you want to enjoy all the features of Gmail then go for Google Workplace. Because no other email service matches Gmail when it comes to its advanced features.
- Microsoft 365 (previously Office 365) – If you are an Outlook lover then go for Microsoft 365. It’s a complete productivity suite with Office apps + 1 TB of OneDrive storage per user.
- Zoho Mail
