    You can create a free email account at mail.com . it's webmail based only , but I use it to sign up for competitions on-line as most of them sell your address eventually and all the spam goes there.

    Once the spam gets too much I delete it and create another free one.

    They also have a mail.com app for android and IOS.

    I have one from my ISP, one through AOL for personal use, one for my computer (Outlook, Hotmail, whatever you want to call it), Gmail for my phone, and iCloud for my phone as well. I used to have Yahoo! but kept getting spam emails so I did away with it. I recommend AOL, Outlook, or Gmail.

    You can get Hosting services for a very small amount of USD - especially if you don't need mega loads of storage.

    Of course you can pay for hosting - cheaper by far than paying per email account -- and simply in the Hosting providers control panel (often called things like Cpanel) set up your email accounts --often UNLIMITED if you buy Hosting service - usually very cheap - and then set the email to forward to wherever you need to access that account - e.g on OUTLOOK or whatever.

    You can get Hosting services for a very small amount of USD - especially if you don't need mega loads of storage.

    You can even get FREE domains but if you want something sensible you'll probably have to pay a few (in most places not too expensive) USD to register a domain - e.g if you want Guernsey etc (domain.gg) it will cost you a bit more than the bog standard Free ones - but even on the Free ones you can create whatever you like for email addresses and have them forwarded to a standard OUTLOOK type of account. They all do IMAP and POP3 these days too.

    Thanks, the thing is that I've been using Fastmail for many years, since when it belonged to Opera and like most old geezers I don't like change. It blocks spam effectively, allows me to change my address if I want to, allows me to create aliases and allows me to suspend the account. I've has endless email accounts over the last 35 years and Fastmail has stood the test of time. I anticipate sticking with them.

    WOW Pathfinder, 55 accounts! How do you even check them all, sounds like if that was me I'd be skipping over lots of emails.

    Thanks to everyone here for your replies!
