Gmail is arguably the best email service provider at the moment. Gmail is simple, secure, user-friendly and very reliable. It offers 15 GB of storage space with the free email account, seamlessly integrates with services like Calendar and Drive (where you can save attachments from the emails), and offers feature-rich apps for mobile devices. It supports built-in chat functionality that allows for voice and video chat as well.

The inbox can be configured to operate and look as per your wish. Enabling the tabbed interface prompts the service to auto-classify your incoming emails into Primary, Updates, Promotions, Social or Forums. While this is a simple configuration, it has a major impact on how you deal with emails, and can really help you stay on top of important emails that land up in the Primary tab.

The inbox interface itself can be set up to be a list or a panel-view with a vertical or horizontal split. Simple Gmail themes let you add color and personality to the inbox and make it truly our own.

A standalone composer lets you write emails while keeping the inbox easily accessible. Smart compose and suggested reply features make the composer extremely powerful and can help you craft replies within seconds. Of course, you can make use of email templates to quickly draft an email and send it out. You may schedule the email to be sent at a specific date and time as well.

See an error in the email you sent out a moment ago? You can undo the sent email if you catch it within a few seconds. Long email threads are often unavoidable but Gmail does a good job at grouping them nicely with relevant replies such that you can read messages in the proper context.

Gmail has exceptional spam filters and you can mark emails as spam or block any unwanted contacts anytime. Gmail gives you the option to configure filtering rules to automatically classify and tag emails with custom labels. As is expected from Google, the search capability of Gmail works wonderfully and makes it very easy to find lost or old messages. It allows you to easily import contacts, check email from other Gmail accounts and level up your email productivity with keyboard shortcuts, canned responses and set up vacation responders.
