The Bottom Line

Mail.com is great for its domain names (use them with forwarding!), but it is missing some of the security and convenience of other web-based email services.

Mail.com is now running on the same platform as GMX Mail.

    Guide Review - Mail.com - Free Email Service

    Mail.com gives you a lot of choice for your email address. There are hundreds of interesting domain names available. For a fee, you can make use of them with your default email client: either forward messages received at your Mail.com account to another address or choose POP access.

    Mail.com's web-based interface is unspectacular, though. Many advanced or convenient features such as secure message delivery, virus scanning or sophisticated spam filtering are absent, and the standard features are, well, standard.

    What you get with a Mail.com account, though, is a quite useful online calendar and notebook as well as a solid address book.
