      can anyone Recommend a new Email provider

      My email provider Zoom is shutting down and soon my beloved email address will be no more. Not too keen on hotmail/yahoo or an ISP Based as I tend to switch ISP or at least have the option to.
      Dont mind paying a fee, but would like a unique email address and lots of storage. POP3 is another must

      Try GMX - Free E-Mail - Webmail & POP3, IMAP

      I've used them for some time. Set up your first email address and, once logged in, you can set up another 9, all of which deposit mail in the inbox. You can then repeat this as many times as you like (or gmx will let you), There is good spam filtering, too.

      POP3 access and web access are available and it also has a SMTP server.

      Not Free, but cheap enough for just email - you're own domain name:

      I'd say gmail - no issues at all since using it and I have about 4 accounts with a mixture of POP and IMAP...

      I have a domain name with 123 Reg, how easy will it be to set up an email address? Who will host it ?

      According to their website 123-reg charge an extra 83p/month for email, the link I gave earlier shows that 1&1 charge 69p/month extra - so could be worth while transferring your domain to them, or go for the free googlemail account. it's your choice, depends on whether you want people to know you as e.g: zee@yourdomain.co.uk or zee1892@googlemail.com

      If you chose either 123-reg or 1&1 they of course would host the email, and the charges are normally annually

      I have 2 domains and mail with 1and1 and I find them very good, I haven't had any downtime with them whatsoever.
      I'm a PC, and Windows 7 Backup saved my sanity when BitDefender imploded !!!
