Free email provider?

Recommended Posts

Do you use a free email account that you can recommend? I need a free email account to use for ecards. I do not want to use my gmail or my outlook accounts to avoid spam. Yahoo has been hacked as I can tell by the odd emails that I receive which use my yahoo password to address me. Do you have a Suggestion? Thanks!

Why can't you just create another email account in gmail or yahoo?

I have several email accounts. A couple are used simply to sign up for sites that I know is going to send me junk mail. When it asked for first/last name, I use something like "First" and "Last" (literally). That way, I'm not giving any actual information.

I did not realize that it was possible to sign up for more than one gmail account. Do you have more than one?

I just double checked and can confirm that I have five active gmail accounts.  I use one as my main account, one as my job search & interview account, one as my spam account, one as my app developer account, and one as my person0 account in case I decide to use the moinker for something else down the line.

I must have 15 gmail accounts.  I certainly have WAY more than five. I try to keep all my things separate.

Yep, I have 3 gmail and 2 yahoo. Used to have a hotmail until it got hacked.

There is only 1 account that is my "home" account with my personal info. All others have fake name...Like my first name is "First" and last name is "Last." Or first name is "A" and last name is "Bacon" or something like that. I use several accounts just to sign up for websites. For example, to use Pinterest, you need to have an email account. I don't want to get blasted with stupid spam email so, I use one of my "fake" emails to sign up. That email account has thousands of unread messages since I don't go into consistently.

Am I the last person on earth with a hotmail account?

I have a Hotmail account somewhere...so no...not the last person on earth with one...

Maybe one of the few left on Earth that actually use it.

I think at least one Hotmail account I have was converted to an outlook account or something like that though, I logged into that one recently, but only because it's there for security validations or whatever they have when I log into yet another email and they want to validate that account.

I don't like giving my phone for the double validation they ask about.  So many of them have been hacked...that's like asking for them to give out my phone number so I can get even MORE robo calls!!!
