Why chose Gmail as free email service provider?
There are tons of reasons why I (many others) prefer Gmail.com as free mail service providers. The very first thing that I like about gmail.com is, it is pretty much faster than others. It takes a fraction of second to login into account even if the internet connection speed is low (it gets login comparatively faster than outlook.com and yahoo.com).
You can adjust the display density to Comfortable, Cozy or Compact according to your preference. There are plenty of interesting pre-installed themes to choose from however you may customise it by uploading image from your computer. It filters all your emails automatically and distributes them under different categories called Primary, Social, Promotion, and update.
The primary section is made for all your important emails like Interview call, email from the client if you are a businessman, email from friend etc however the Social section contains email notifications from social network sites you have created an account with like Facebook, Google Plus, Twitter, Linkedin etc.
The other tab called Promotion is meant for receiving promotional offers from different websites you have subscribed to.
