Choosing Free Email Service

Related – List of Email Service

Choosing a free email service is sometimes hard. There are so many email providers that offer free services out there, but not all people like their service and there are many various reviews in the internet and that make us sometimes confuse to choose the free email service.

Then what should we do? There are actually no exact way to find the best free email service because each person has different preference and opinion. But maybe these tips can help you to decide which email service you should choose.

The first thing you should do is checking their website. If the website is designed beautifully or easy to navigate then they probably also have a good email service which also designed like their website. The point here is, if they care to their service then they will also care to their website as their customers’ landing page. It is also good if you check their rank on Alexa, because if this email service is popular, then it could mean that it doesn’t have many big issues and problems.

The next thing to do is gathering as many technical information about the email services and then compare their features. Storage size is an important factor. The bigger the storage, then the better it is. Spamfilter is also a must-have feature, because nowadays there are so many spams and we don’t want our inbox full of spam, do we? It is also better if the email service allows IMAP so you could sync all of your mail and data anywhere anytime with any of your devices. But the most important thing is the security and privacy because what we really need is a private and secure email

And maybe you want to find an ads-free email service? Well that may be possible. However, an ads-free free email service is very hard to find because they get the money to host their customers’ email only from the ads, even though we all hate ads. So maybe it is better if you download an extension like Ad-Block for your browser to block many ads.

The other features like the provided email address domain and inbox’s design are up to your preference.

Those are some tips to choose your email services. Hope this article could help you to find the right email service.

ZillaMail Overview

Related – List of Email Service

ZillaMail is provided by ZillaDog. All information here is summarized from ZillaMail website

Provided Email Address Domain

Zillamail provides @zillamail.net

Features

  • ZillaMail is a web based email system that is safe for children, is spam free and parent password protected. There is nothing to download. Your child is provided with his or her own Zilladog.net email account which is designed to be accessed by any web browser. Zilladog.com and ZillaMail comply fully with the federal COPPA law (Children Online Privacy Protection Act).
  • ZillaMail has certain areas that are only accessible with a Parent Password. This password allows access to add and remove contacts to the child’s Buddy List, accesses the Blind Carbon Copy and Message Filtering features, as well as set preferences and view blocked messages.
  • ZillaMail is simple and fun to use. Kids can choose “skins” they like best from various themes. New themes are regularly released for your children’s enjoyment.  Our state of the art spam filters make sure your child will never see an unapproved message or spam.
  • ZillaMail contains a profanity filter feature that removes offensive words and phrases from the child’s email. The filter contains words and phrases which are universally accepted as objectionable and inappropriate for children. The Personal Information Filter gives you the ability to add additional custom words and phrases to the filter. Things such as the child’s address, phone number and local dialect curse words may be added to further enhance your child’s security.
  • ZillaMail incorporates a blind carbon copy feature. This means that all email sent and received by a child may be copied to their parents email address. This feature is configurable and may be enabled or disabled by the parent. Message Filtering scans incoming emails and either approved, removed or quarantined. Quarantined messages are placed in a special “Blocked Messages” folder which cannot be accessed by the child. The blocked messages can only be viewed by the parent using the “Parent Password”. The blocked messages can then be deleted or the sender approved and added to the child’s “Buddy List”.
  • ZillaChat is the first truly safe chat platform for kids.  Children can only chat with other ZillaMail subscribers on their buddy list.  The same profanity and personal information filters from our email service also apply to our chat service.  Parents can log into the Parent Administration section of ZillaMail to review their child’s chats for up to 30 days

  • Encryption between Hushmail users happens automatically, so you don’t even have to think about it. When emailing users outside our system, our on-demand encryption is easily managed with a checkbox. Just sign in to our webmail, compose a message and check the “Encrypted” box to send the message securely.

In addition, all communications between you and our servers use a secure connection (our A+ grade SSL/TLS connection is rated by Qualsys SSL Labs).

The first step is to sign in using your username and passphrase. The second step is entering a verification code that we’ll send to your mobile phone or an alternate email address. You can also obtain a verification code using a smartphone app.
