|Google Mail||MS Outlook||Yahoo!|
|Zoho Mail||Apple iCloud|
The choice of a mailbox depends on a number of factors (operating system, habits, needs.
So, if you are a Windows, Microsoft Office user and you have a Windows phone, the easiest way would be to use Outlook.
Similarly, if your phone is an Android and you use Google services (calendar, etc.) then Gmail will be obvious.
Zoho has features similar to Gmail and Outlook, and it can be used on iOS or Android. this mailbox will particularly satisfy professionals in small and medium-sized businesses.
Yahoo! is a good service but some will certainly regret its lack of versatility, just like with iCloud which is exclusively dedicated to iOS users.
The new Gmail version has been redesigned to incorporate the presence of a new sidebar offering you Google Calendar, Keep and Tasks functions for example.
In addition to a reorganization, new services such as an offline mode or the possibility of managing e-mails without having to open them have appeared. On the other hand, if you do not have time to process your messages, you can put them on hold in order to process them later.
Make your exchanges as secure as possible by scheduling the deletion and expiration of your messages when they are sent.
In addition, Gmail automatically filters your emails based on their importance, different activities, advertisements and forums. It’s a very interesting approach.
And why not personalize your account? Change the theme or download the image of your choice as a background.
The interface on Android and iOS is slightly different, but well designed and easy to use.
In addition to having more configuration options than most other services, it is possible to import your emails and contacts from other accounts.
It is an excellent service that we highly recommend.
The Outlook website is very similar to the traditional application. The page is separated into three modules. A column on the left gives you access to your emails, your drafts, your mailbox and your files, while the central part shows you the list of your messages and an overview of them.
Outlook allows you to create rules to make the classification of your emails automatic. For example, you can decide that messages containing the word “meeting” should always be moved to a specific folder that you would have named “organization”. This feature is especially handy when using Outlook as a professional mailbox.
This mailbox allows you to use many online applications (Contacts, Calendar, OneDrive, etc.) including, of course, the Office suite.
Thanks to these new features, Outlook has risen to the level of Gmail, and becomes its main competitor.
Yahoo! Mail has a modern presentation and interesting features.
Like the majority of mailboxes, the interface is separated into two sections, a thin column on the left including your files (drafts, basket, etc.) and a central block where your messages are displayed.
The “Smart Views” tool is quite similar to the Gmail tabs. Here you can separate your emails into 7 groups: Unread, with star (followed messages), People, Social, Shopping, Travel and Finance.
The search tool has been improved to search all the words in a message including the titles of attachments, and if you enter the name of a contact the entire history of your exchanges will be displayed.
To attract new users, Yahoo! making importing other email accounts very simple and offers 1 TB of free storage!
Zoho mail will satisfy professionals as well as individuals.
First asset of this mailbox: collaboration tools. Zoho has implemented functionalities specially dedicated to teamwork which will be very appreciated in companies.
You can, for example, create discussion groups using integrated instant messaging (very similar to Slack), leave comments and add “likes” to emails, tag people in messages …
Zoho also provides access to a cloud where you can use software very similar to the Office suite and Google Doc. Everything is there, from word processing to spreadsheets, including calendars, notes, a presentation tool like Power Point, etc.
The interface of this mailbox is simple and clear. You can easily organize your e-mails in folders, in tree structure, follow exchanges and create standard messages.
The free version of Zoho provides 5 GB of storage for your emails and 5 GB for your documents. Beyond that, you can subscribe to a monthly subscription.
On the home page, click the wheel (top right of the screen) and then click General Settings (bottom of the page). There, go to the General tab and click on Edit Profile. Choose English in the Language bar and save the change.
When you buy an Apple device, you have an iCloud account which includes free messaging. The web version of it is a bit disappointing compared to its mobile version.
On an iPhone and iPad, the mail application can contain several accounts such as Gmail, Outlook and Yahoo!, but the web version only gives you access to e-mails from iCloud.
Here too you can create rules to make the organization of your messages automatic. You can also give VIP status to some of your contacts whose messages will be placed in your VIP mailbox, ensuring that you do not miss any correspondence.
The interface is presented in three columns, it is simple and effective. Some will however regret that it is not possible to customize the presentation or that there are no advanced features.
Note that iCloud only offers 5 GB of free storage.
