Mail.com - Free Email Service

Mail.com - Free Email Service

Heinz Tschabitscher

The Bottom Line

Mail.com is great for its domain names (use them with forwarding!), but it is missing some of the security and convenience of other web-based email services.
Mail.com is now running on the same platform as GMX Mail.


  • Mail.com lets you choose from a number of interesting domain names
  • In addition to web-based email, Mail.com offers a calendar and a notepad
  • Mail.com includes 3 GB of online storage


  • Spam and virus protection is rather weak in Mail.com
  • Mail.com does not offer sending of emails using HTML formatting


  • Mail.com offers free web-based email accounts with 3 GB of online mailbox size.
  • In addition to email, Mail.com includes calendar, notebook and address book functionality.
  • For a fee, you can forward all your Mail.com email or choose POP access.

Guide Review - Mail.com - Free Email Service

Mail.com gives you a lot of choice for your email address. There are hundreds of interesting domain names available. For a fee, you can make use of them with your default email client: either forward messages received at your Mail.com account to another address or choose POP access.

Mail.com's web-based interface is unspectacular, though. Many advanced or convenient features such as secure message deliver, virus scanning or sophisticated spam filtering are absent, and the standard features are, well, standard.

What you get with a Mail.com account, though, is a quite useful online calendar and notebook as well as a solid address book.

sooo sorrry that I ever gave them any of my information. Like others reviews, same story, cant get rid of them. They won't let me go back to free, keep threatning me if I don't pay. Extortion! Take my advice, stay free, use Gmail instead. This company is based over seas and is rapidly swindling everyone who supplies them with funds.
