☑️ You have many. many choices when it comes to which email service you should use. I will review what to look for, and make a couple of recommendations.
Chosing an email service
There are three approaches to consider when deciding how to manage your email.
* Your own domain: the most control and flexibility for as long as you own it.
* Paid service: the most help and support options when you run into trouble.
* Free email: ubiquitous and easy, appropriate for many, but you must accept the hidden costs of “free”.

You have many choices. Some, in my opinion, are better…
this is a great video, thanks
Like I can do in Mail, here on my Macbook Pro, which of these will allow me to aggregate all 15 of my email address–of various brands: Gmail, Yahoo, etc–into one massive inbox? Thanks : )
Regarding backing up your email (or anything else), there are two types of people in the world:
1 – those who have backups, and;
2- those that WISH THEY HAD a backup.
I don't know why you are so down on using your ISP. I have ATT for internet and get free email service through yahoo. ATT has OUTSTANDING customer support, albeit a bit more expensive than others. So far in 30 years no serious problems going through multiple computers using win95 through win7.
I use Yahoo for both my personal email and my "spam" email addresses. I have a gmail address, but I hardly ever use it. I used to use Lycos for my "spam" address, but they dropped free accounts a couple of years ago. I have a Microsoft email account (@live.com), but I hardly ever use that one, either. That leaves my excite.com email address, which I use as my email address for only a couple of specific services. I stopped using ISP email back in the early 2000's, and for a short time was using a free email forwarding service, which later went belly-up.
Out of these, I'm probably the most concerned about Excite ending their free email service, but so far, no news is good news. If I have to change things up in the future, I will.
Always informative. Thanks. JimE
