Create a new email account

Nowadays you need an email address to do just about anything on the internet, from registering for a service to buying a car. Emails are a great alternative to physical mail. Sometimes, we begin realizing that we dislike our current email provider, but picking a new one isn’t quite easy! We will help you to figure out how to properly pick an email provider.


How to select an email provider?

Here are some of the most important criteria to check for, when you are looking for a new email provider:

  • Reputation: Your email provider’s reputation should be good and not known for any scams or have a suspicious website and online presence. Did you know that an email address and domain is one of the first things that your clients notice?
  • Archive: Good email providers should allow you to have the ability to save, store, archive, and search your messages.
  • Security: Security is a must in our modern world, no one wants unauthorized people gaining access to their email account! Both the account setup should require a secure password and there should be additional security options available such as app passwords, security questions, etc.
  • Spam Filter: Spam messages only waste our time and no one likes them. It is important to ensure that your email provider has a good system that detects and filters spam messages.
  • Storage: Storage is a very important aspect when selecting an email provider because you wouldn’t want to run out of storage unexpectedly and stop receiving new messages.
