Alternative email provider?

I am trying to find a (free) email host that isn’t gmail/hotmail/etc. Preferably something with a small domain name.

I use gmail, but I had like a spam email account that I opened with yahoo, and I really liked their set up over there.

gmail for domains. That way you can still use your domain name. (or buy one if you don’t have one)

Trustinglife's avatar was ok. I switched to Gmail, and it is far superior.

This might be petty of me, but what I value most when it comes to email is the name. In my opinion I’d rather have a very short, easily remembered name rather than a long drawn out username. With Gmail, after spending literally an hour and a half trying to find a good username (less than 8 letters, one word, no numbers) I gave up.

I might be able to use Google Apps, but I don’t know if you can use the + sign in the email service.

I don’t care, you want a gmail account.

You NEED a gmail account.
