Free Webmail Providers

You Need A Webmail Account!

You need an e-mail address that is NOT provided by your Internet Service Provider. Here's why...

PERMANENCE

This is an example of a very common scenario:

Pat e-mailed her resume to XYZ Inc to apply for a job. She used an e-mail address provided by her Internet Service Provider. Two weeks later she finds a great new ISP and changes services. Pat no longer has access to her old ISP e-mail account. XYZ eventually sends a reply but gets an error message stating Pat's e-mail address does not exist!

If Pat had used an independent webmail address, not her ISP e-mail address, she would have received the important reply from XYZ Inc.

ANONYMITY

Use a webmail address to subscribe to newsletters, respond to special offers, register for online services, sign up for clubs or groups, etc. The best feature of webmail is you can simply delete the account and create a new webmail identity if you no longer want e-mail sent to that address.

ACCESSIBILITY

You can access your webmail account from any computer that has access to the Internet. At work, school, on vacation - anywhere.

Free webmail services are supported by advertising revenue. You may see ads when you log-in to your webmail account. You may also find solicitations in your mailbox. Your outgoing e-mail might include a tagline, a short text advertisement at the bottom of your outgoing messages.

Exposure to advertising is the price you pay for free webmail. If you can tolerate the advertising, a free webmail account is a frugal way to communicate online.
