Email Providers?

I need to change broadband provider, which of course takes the emails with it. I'm currently with BT, but their email system, provided by Yahoo is unreliable and recent changes are making using an email client difficult as not all emails get downloaded.

So a good list of alternative broadband providers is available, but most do not provide email addresses.

Gmail allows one email address per account. But I need 3 email addresses, so that does not work. It can be set up with more addresses, but they all link. I need to be able to read separate ones from different computers.

Can't go Yahoo, as that doesn't fix anything.

So any ideas where I can find an email provider that allows at least three email addresses on one account, and allows them to be downloaded to an email client (Mozilla Thunderbird) separately.

Any suggestions welcomed. Thanks

Re: Email Providers?

My ISP is Zen internet, they are not cheap but are consistently rated top for customer service. They will give you up to 10 email addresses as part of your package, accessible through any email client as well as their web portal - https://support.zen.co.uk/kb/Knowled...ternet-account

Other than that - https://www.techadvisor.co.uk/featur...-2018-3613837/

Re: Email Providers?

Just thought I'd add my experiences. Was with Virgin but they put up the price to £49 a month for land line 50Mbit fibre and unlimited calls .

Shopped around ,changed e-mail to Gmail, went mi-fi with Three , dished the land line for a mobile at home ,got unlimited calls and texts + 20 GB a month at 6Mbit internet for£18 a month. Actually use only 11GB a month.

Total savings £360 a year , that'll pay car tax and insurance. Only snag is the mi-fi needs recharging 2x a week

(Local computer engineer speaking)
As far as phone & Broadband goes, Plusnet get top marks from me.

For an email address, my advice would be don't use any ISP's email. Sign up for a free Gmail or Hotmail account and save yourself the hassle.

Re: Email Providers?

I used Plusnet for business. All was good but phone divert costs were high. Today I would use VOIP as its now as reliable as a fixed line and can be answered from any phone or laptop.

For email I used free Gmail and Outlook. Outlook is the better of the two.

Re: Email Providers?

Just set up 3 different Gmail accounts?

I have 3.

One I use for shopping, one for Usenet and one for work, as I have some customers who canít receive emails from my official work account!
