Gmail Free eMail Account

Over the years you have probably use a lot of different ISP’s (Internet Service Providers) at home or at work to access the internet.

Company’s such as Telstra and Optus will give you an email address when buy your Internet service through them, but the only problem is you loose your email account when you stop using their internet service.

Then benefit of using an independent email service such as GoogleGmail is that it is not tied to any one particular internet service provider. This means it doesn’t matter how many ISP’s you use over the years (and trust me there will be a few) you will always still have your same email address, contacts and emails.

Benefits of Gmail

The great thing about Gmail is it is made and run by Google and therefore always has some new feature other email providers dont have, or chrage a premium price for.

There are all sorts of extras you can get to add-on to you Gmail such as the ability to know when someone has read your emails or you can ever use your own domain name like yourname@whatever.com.

I don’t think i have ever heard anyone say they cant access their gmail eMail because Google was down.
