Electronic mail (e-mail) is a computer-based application for the exchange of messages between users. A worldwide e-mail network allows people to exchange e-mail messages very quickly. E-mail is the electronic equivalent of a letter, but with advantages in timeliness and flexibility.
With almost all of our aspects in today’s life getting digital, it’s become a must-have. You need an email account — whether it’s for networking, job recruitment, downloading resources, transferring files, setting reminders, meeting with colleagues, or something else.
Even with the rise of office chat platforms, you still depend on email for a surprising number of things. But unfortunately, not every email service is completely free. And even the free ones might not be the easiest to use or have all the features you need.
There are many service providers of email accounts for example but not limited to the following
• Yahoo! Mail
• iCloud Mail
• Mozilla thunderbird
• Yandex mail
Gmail (pronounced Gee-mail) is a free Web-based e-mail service that provides users with a gigabyte of storage for messages and provides the ability to search for specific messages. The Gmail program also automatically organizes successively related messages into a conversational thread. The service is provided by Google.
According to Litmus Labs, Gmail has the second-highest email provider market share (behind Apple iPhone’s native email app). once you purchase an android based smartphone it’s imperative that you have to have an email address in order to enjoy all features of the phone.
Gmail is a regular email inbox tool you can access once you have a Google account. Since it’s built into Google Suite, you can also access a group of free apps that allow you to chat, video conference, and share files with the people in your contact list.
Like most other email accounts today, Gmail also has an intuitive calendar where you can set meetings and reminders.
Unlike other email accounts, you can use your Gmail address to log into and manage your YouTube account, as well as collaborate on shared documents and spreadsheets right from a cloud-based Google Drive.
Offering a generous 15 GB of free email storage, Gmail does everything it can to make your inbox less chaotic, including advanced filters that automatically push emails into separate folders as they arrive. And none of these functions costs a dime.
