    Other than mighty Gmail! :D

    I don't plan to receive many emails so no big box is required but it should be safe, secure. It can be in the US, I am not a US resident. Forwarding is important.

    What are your experiences?

    Hello,

    I believe if forwarding is important, you might want to try some of these.

    They all have their pros and cons.

    Hotmail/live.com
    Yahoo/ymail.com
    India.com
    Gmx.com
    Zoho.com
    Yandex.com
    Lavabit.com
    Lus.com

    Good luck.

    I only use Gmail and Hotmail. If you do not wanna use Gmail then I recommend Hotmail. :)

    Ah Lavabit! That's what I was looking for I just forgot the name. Is it any good? I don't like Hotmail since it deletes accounts if I not log in for a time. :D

    Gmail's problem is it's too popular! My name is already taken there!

    AOL is having a makeover soon. I can get the new version on my new SeaMonkey profile. It looks promising. It now actually remembers where I live in Europe & even remembers to change the weather from Celsius to Fahrenheit for me in its UI. AOL is actually quite easy to use & pretty reliable (very little spam, if any).

    I could be wrong, but I believe in order to get forwarding with AOL, you would need to upgrade to a paid account.

    Lavabit does offer free accounts with forwarding.

    I have never used Lavabit all that much so I can't really comment on their service. Most reviews are good from what I have heard.

    A couple more I forgot:

    Computermail.net
    Ireland.com
    mail2world.com
    xmail.net

    Gmail is the best, free and POP3. So, I never have to go online, just fire up my Outlook and "Send/Receive". As an option, I archive a copy of each email that I receive and send at Gmail Server. The free space is now more than 7GB for each free email.

    Best regards,

    KOR!
