    Gmail. You can get from anywhere and you dont have to store a darn thing.

    Do you mean an E-mail account or Client SW ?
    I use multiple ones for different content and use, most are disposable ones for casual use. Main ones are Hotmail (serious stuff), Gmail (no client, just live) for everyday use and some other ones of which one is 15 years old.

    I would avoid outlook, it kept loosing my emails and I have checked a week ago, still the same.
    Gmail is an obvious choice, I use it for spam, so when I register somewhere, I put in gmail.
    It also depends, if you are going to use webmail or email client with IMAP, POP3 support.
    I use mail.ru, but some providers do not accept emails from it, they consider it as spam.

    Is there any advantage for using IMAP and POP3 support over Gmail?

    That depends, how many emails do you receive, how many devices you use to access it and so on.
    I use an extension within a browser to notify me about emails, once closed, emails do not bother me.

    Why not just try them and find out for yourself. It takes years, that is the only way.
    Outlook Mail and Gmail are the two big providers.

    I use both. They have equally complex settings running to many pages, irritating if you just want a simple mail facility. For me over many years Gmail access was lost twice.

    I changed to IMAP access about 4 years ago it is the modern way particularly if you have more than one device receiving mail.
