    I like AOL too.
    Of course the spammers will go where the most traffic is, and Yahoo and Gmail are so popular..
    I closed my Yahoo account because of total overrun, but keep Gmail going...


    Same thing was happening with AOL during the 90's, all the spamming, and people left. AOL is getting a turnaround though.

    And terra, I agree about Thunderbird. It's a no-nonsense email program. I've used it off and on for years .. no problems there.

    I use GMail and I gave up on Hotmail.

    Never tried any of the others.

    The question was. Good Safe site for email.

    The answer? None of the above. Anything you put out on the internet is fair game.

    For instance. You post in a forum. Then you google the same topic. And what comes up? Your post.

    When setting up an email account use a common word for the .........@gmail.

    The reason. If someone tries to google your name account they will get myriads of sites.

    I use Gmail and use the 2 step verification process. It can be a pain to set up initially but it works well. I am aware that my emails are scanned by bots (not humans) for advertising purposes but that doesn't bother me too much. The flexibility of adding filters on Gmail is worth having for me. My ISP knows a lot more about my online behavior over any email service that I use anyway.

    There are a couple of things I do recommend to everyone regardless of what service they use. The first thing is to change your password on a regular basis. The second is to have 2 email accounts. One account use only for friends and family. The second account use for business that require an email account and sites like this which require an email account to register on.

    Since the first of the year Gmail has been giving me fits telling me that the password I entered is wrong. Once in a while they accept it, but usually it is no. I too am looking to make a change. On one of the rare occasions that I got in, I brought up my address book and printed a copy so that I can now use it on a different email site. I used Gmail for nearly 10 years and they were fine, but no more. I originally went to gmail because the various Microsoft iterations grew tedious.

    I own a domain name through godaddy. This costs me under twenty dollars per year including the surcharge to hide my name and location. My cost includes free email. It has worked perfectly for the six or seven years that I've had it. I have neither ads nor spam problems nor account hijacking.

    I have about a half dozen email addresses now. I use Gmail for business Hotmail for rooms like this & a Yahoo account that I opened close to 20 years ago. That's the one I use for friends and family and now is kind of a catch all.

    I remember having AOL back then too. Do they still have an "Unsend" button? I miss that. I wonder why they don't all do that?

    Gmail has the "unsend" button. You do have to activate it though : https://www.cnet.com/how-to/how-to-u...gmail-account/
