On one of our earlier FAQ’s (What is the best free email system to use?) we nominated G Mail, and have discovered some more reasons why G Mail is the best free system.
Did you know that if you have a G Mail id such as John.Smith432@gmail.com, then you can also send emails to J.ohn.S.firstname.lastname@example.org, or email@example.com, or any combination of the original user id in the order you set it up, with the dots appearing anywhere before the @ and you will still receive email to your emails correctly as if sent to the original John.Smith432@gmail.com (you do not need the capitals either as G Mail does not recognise them in an email address.
There is only one exception to this, and that is where you have used G Mail to set up an email address based upon your web site domain name, then the usual rules apply.
Here’s what we said about G Mail earlier:
Our research shows Gmail is the most secure and user-friendly email service (in our opinion), and it includes many extras to make your email experience the best. One of the earliest ways that Google attempted to take over the internet was by releasing Gmail to the public in 2007. Since then, Gmail has become the new standard as the best free email program. This service provides a free email account that is always upgrading to stay ahead of its competition. It includes spam filtering, free cloud storage, POP3 and IMAP support. Gmail’s incredible service combines video chat, social media and account protection. These characteristics make Gmail the winner for free email services, (again this is only in our opinion).
If you are interested in setting up a Gmail account for yourself, simply follow these instructions:
- Go to www.gmail.com.
- Click Create account.
- The signup form will appear.
- Enter the requested details and choose your Gmail id and password.
- Here, you’ll have an opportunity to set up recovery options. …
- Your account will be created, and the Google welcome page will appear.
