Top 10 alternatives to Gmail

Are you looking for an alternative to Gmail, and Hotmail is not what you are searching for? Well, here are some suggestions. Some solutions are reviewed, others are just mentioned.

1 : VXG |

This is a service for the selected few, that has some cash extra and wants to distinguish themselves from the rest. If you do like Google's products, like Gmail and Google Docs, but would like an exclusive email address, more storage and no ads, this is the solution for you. VXG is a paid solution. You do get more than 25 GB (yes, giga bytes) of storage with VXG. Of course, you can buy your own domain, start using Google Apps and get a similar experience (that requires some skills and takes time). What you really pay for here is being one exclusive member of the VXG club, and the only way to get a email address is to sign up.

2 : Hush Mail |

3 : FastMail |

Opera's mail service has now tunrned into FastMail as well, as this service was acquired by Opera Software. The free version is quite limited in terms of space. 25 MB is nothing today. However it's an alternative worth checking out.
