    And of course there's always the service provided by your ISP, normally requiring you to install a mail client of which there are quite a few good free ones (I use and am quite happy with Thunderbird, from Mozilla).

    I think also Zoho is an option.
    Imap works for sure, I am not sure about POP.

    Thank you all



    Please note that Yahoo doesn't give POP3 access for free,
    they want a payment for that..

    I will check GMX..


    Using the mailbox from your ISP is problematic, since you might one day want to switch to a different ISP,
    and using the ISP's mailbox for all your stuff, will make changing ISPs difficult.

    IMHO a mailbox should be from an independent source..


    wow, very nice
    will read it now
    Thank you verymuch

    I used GMX in the past but it sucks, I was unable to change password...

    hmm
    Can you please tell me where're the setting to enable or disable it?


    When I searched for "yahoo pop3", it gave me a page that shows that it's a "Yahoo Ad Free" feature.
    (Ad Free = 50$/year)

    Depends on the ISP, of course. In my case I've stayed with mine over 15 years, mainly because their customer service and tech support have stayed top-notch and they could certainly give lessons in both fields to other telecom operations. A good indicator of that is that until fairly recently they didn't have to spend a penny on advertising, getting virtually all their new customers from word of mouth from other satisfied customers and from computer shops.
