    E Mail Address

    Post  Ladyelaine on Fri Apr 21, 2017 4:32 pm

    Is there any way for a person to get a free first time e-mail address if they have no cell phone and own no computer but they use public library computers for job search? Many job applications require an e-mail address but there seems no way to obtain one if a person has no phone # and no alternate/previous e-mail address.

    I can't guarantee any of them right now. But I know the following used to allow exactly that.

    mail.com
    gmx.com
    yahoo.com (be careful because they don't tell you when they've been hacked until years later)
    hushmail.com

    You can also create a gmail address (even if you already have one), use it until you don't need it, then delete it. It will ask you for a phone number for security and rescue purposes. But you can skip that if you want. I've had several gmail accounts that I used for a little while then deleted. (I still have several, but use all of those.)

    I'd go with gmail, but stay away from Yahoo at all costs....
