Email Accounts

I am looking to open an email account that is not supplied by my internet provider.

I have a gmail account but am not comfortable with the security.

Does anyone have any experience or suggestions of good, secure (preferably free!) email that is simple to use but functional..

Thanks

Why would you not be comfortable with gmail security?

Gmail is probably one of the better free ones to be honest

Gmail. Set up two factor authentication and unless someone steals your phone as well as knowing your password it's pretty secure

To view the link you have to Register or Login

You will need to remember not to offer any access to your email. The only known gmail vulnerability* I can think of is regarding third-party services accessing your account to do funky wizardry with on your behalf.

*It's not really a vulnerability as these services were up-front about about what they did, but the scandal was about people not realising that agreeing that humans could read your email meant that you agreed humans could read your email.

Just don't do it. Like browser extensions and toolbars, unnecessary and just opening up another vector for attack.

Until very recently I worked for an uber massive tech group. Our global head of privacy wouldn’t touch google for anything.

An end user has to weigh privacy concerns against utility, though.

Clearly, the very best solution is to run your own email server and vpn to it, and make sure it's configured properly, ensuring your web server is available 24/7 and quickly. And once you've set it up, you then needs the smarts to troubleshoot it when it goes wrong.

But Joe Bloggs is not really inclined to go to the expense and the hassle, hence he has to make the least worst decision.

Was the uber massive tech group bigger than Google?

I'm not keen on putting all of my virtual eggs in one basket either with services, but Gmail is so intuitive and a quality service so I still use that.
