so after Google search comes Gmail. Of course you could just set up an email address using your own domain, (which I’m thinking about doing,) but if you want to use an actual email provider, here are some alternatives I found, (I haven’t tested any of these.)
Yahoo Mail I take that back, I did use Yahoo Mail back in 2004, when my inbox kept getting full at like 5 MB.
Startmail.com An email service from the creators of Startpage.
Kolabnow.com A swis-based email service.
Tutanota.com Email based in Germany.
Whiteout.io I like the name Whiteout!
