GMAIL IS STILL THE BEST, BUT HERE ARE SOME GOOD AL­TER­NA­TIVES

Gadgets and Gizmos (India) - - DIGITAL LIFE - BY NANDAGOPAL RA­JAN

Re­mem­ber the last time you send a per­sonal e-mail to a non-Gmail ac­count? Well, the an­swer to that ques­tion will sum up the pop­u­lar­ity of Google’s mail across the globe. Six years on, it is the world’s most pop­u­lar mail ser­vice with around 500 mil­lion users. For all the good things it has given us, Gmail has also spoilt us. For years, most of us never both­ered to delete un­nec­es­sary emails, for Gmail had 10 GB of space. Now, we find our­selves strug­gling to cre­ate space for new mail.

Maybe it is time to take a relook at old favourites that have rein­vented them­selves for new con­nected gen­er­a­tion. Use them as a sec­ond mail or switch over com­pletely. The lat­ter might now be that easy though.
