Free email imap
« on: September 19, 2015, 02:11:10 AM »
It looks like one of my email accounts is going pay.

I use Thunderbird and Imap for email and that Free mail account will no  long support it.

I could not even find a way, to the online email.

So I changed my email, to this site, to a Gmail account.

We may have to pay for email if this trend continues.

Part of the problem was a Browser incompatibly.

It still does not take my email and password.

But I no longer see anything about a premium account.

Imap still is working.

I never used mail.com
I remember reading lots of posts with problems so I steered clear of them.

Can't you open an account at gmx?

I have looked in that. their login page is a carbon copy of Mail.com

http://www.mail.com/mail/

http://www.gmx.com/mail/

Same Company

I need email accounts with POP3 or IMAP access.

Try to see is they would forward the email to my Gmail account, But that is a pay feature.

There was some saved emails and have update one site.

I am not going to pay for a Company that lost my emails

Well maybe gmx took over mail.com.

I have yet to "lose" an email at gmx.

I see there is no IMAP support

Actually, in addition to webmail, GMX has both IMAP, and POP support.
https://help.gmx.com/en/applications/imap.html#servers
https://help.gmx.com/en/applications/pop3.html#servers

Since United Internet, (parent company to 1&1) took over mail.com, it wouldn't surprise me if they eventually combine the mail services with GMX.... but that's just speculation.

I made an gmx account. Still looks like it has Imap for now.

Am going to try and use the Collect feature to get the email from the mail.com account.

May not work but will be fun trying.

But sadly paid looks like the tend. :(
