Yes, 1&1, also from Germany. But they have servers in Pennsylvania and Kansas.

They may change the service I suspect, and wouldn't recommend getting
too deeply involved with GMX until we know more.

I am marginally wary of Chinese providers. I suppose it should be useful if you don't talk about China with these emails?

Gmail.com is the best service and long term mail. If you don't have one create a gmail account from gmail
Your first post - welcome to the forum! How long have you been working for Google?

I seriously doubt that the #18 poster works for Google, more likely trying to advertise his website.

I reported this to the Mods earlier in the day, for them to have a look at for themselves.

I liked Hotmail before Microsoft bought it.

Hotmail always sounds a bit non-serious to me, and has subsequently been replaced by outlook.com.

I have a Hotmail/Outlook account and it is a good service. One of the addresses is @hotmail and an alias is @outlook. Excellent interface, spam filter and overall service. Would definitely recommend.

I agree with TenFour though that Hotmail sounds a bit non-serious. Would only use the Outlook email address for important stuff.

Probably it isn't wise to use a Chinese provider if your aim is to use it for political activities that oppose the local regime. If you however only wish to use it for everyday non-political email conversations, I don't see the problem. If your email correspondence is of non-political nature, a Chinese provider should be just as good as any other.

By the way, a Russian provider is probably also not the best option if you insist on negative comments about the Russian government. And an American email provider is probably not the best idea if you are insisting on venting anti-American sentiments.

However, if your emails are of non-political nature, then mainly the quality of the service matters, whereas its location becomes largely irrelevant.
Hence: whether you use a Chinese, Russian, American, EU based, Indian, Latin American, Canadian, ... email provider doesn't matter that much if you use it for discussing non-political issues. Look at the quality of the service rather than its location.
And when it comes to quality, I cannot comment on Chinese providers from personal experience, but fact is some email providers in China have been around for many years and proven to be solid.

I wouldn't worry about expressing political views in emails in any Western country. For most of us the far bigger and far more realistic worry is being hacked, phished, etc.

People post political views in emails? That's news to me! I thought email was being used less and less for friendly conversation, with Facebook & WhatsApp taking over. I prefer emails over any other method of communication (I like snail mail too) but pretty much everyone I know thinks I'm strange for not having moved onto more modern social media platforms.

Apparently, some are afraid that if they note in an email quite accurately that their "Dear Leader" is an absolute moron black hooded thugs will drag them off in the middle of the night for "re-education." I have no fears of that happening in any Western country, nor in most of the world. Many times I have been to local government meetings where people stood up and openly spouted complete lies and accused officials of all sorts of false things, and nothing ever happens to them. I doubt anyone cares in the least what I am writing in emails. Even repressive governments tend to have bigger problems to deal with. We (all of us) always tend to fear the wrong things, while it is the ordinary phishing attempt or email malware that we should be really concerned about. Choose your email service on reliability, security, features, and cost, but not because you've lost your tinfoil hat!
