As the digital revolution continue to foster in our current era, digital mailing or commonly known as e-mail remains to be a significant player in terms of communication and shares a chunk of the exchange of message. When we are in talks about free emails, the top of head sites or providers are Gmail and Yahoo. But what if we are tired of their features or we just want to try something else new? Well, we have just listed the other free email providers besides Gmail and Yahoo.
Outlook is a very good alternative for Gmail and Yahoo because it is also from a big company which is Microsoft. It has five main features of Quick Access Bar, Mail (send, create email signature, forward, open and save attachments functions), Calendar(schedule a meeting and set a reminder functions), People (creating contact, and open .csv file functions), and Tasks (create a task, assign, accept or reject tasks, view a task and print a task functions). However, many users complain about their jargons and complicated terminologies but overall, this is a good alternative.
