Gmail is not tied to your internet service provider. That free email from Comcast, Wide Open West or AT&T will need to be changed if you ever leave them. BIG HASSLE!
Gmail does not get hacked as often as Yahoo, AOL and the other major email providers.
If your Gmail does get compromised and all your email goes missing, Gmail has an option that allows you to recover your lost email.
Gmail has a better spam blocker than the other major email providers.
If you want to make the switch to Gmail, they offer a great migration tool that will allow you to import your email and contacts from your old account to your new and will continue to do this for 30 days as you make the switch.
We can help you make the switch!
