Does anyone know or have any ideas on whether outlook or gmail will bring out a new email domain?

Want to make an email with first name and surname but as expected its taken across most providers. Don't really want to pay for a personal domain right now.

So just wondering if anyone has any knowledge on whether email providers are likely to bring out a new email domain or recycle emails (potentially very unlikely).

Just a thought...

Zoho is good and it's free. You can buy a domain, I know you said you didn't want that, and run your email, accounts etc free via zoho.

Isnt it only free for 2 weeks? And then the free plan after that doesn't allow you to send emails? Ive just upgraded from the free plan to the basic one for 80p per month (Must pay for the year though) and it is pretty decent to he honest. Set up IMAP so i get all emails through gmail instead of going through Zoho every time.

There is no demand for yet another free email service. Have you tried Proton mail? They have a free version but it may be insufficient for you.
Have a look at mail.com they have more email domains than you can shake a stick at!

Ahh maybe it has changed, it was free when I joined 5 years ago. I still don't pay...

Considered routing the emails but don't really want to do it. In the long run, will probably consider getting a custom domain...

It’s not too bad price wise. I bought a year domain for £3, and paid £8 for a year of email subscription.

Domain was through GoDaddy, and email through ZoHo. You can use Gsuite (gmail) for your email service but it’s £4 per month whereas ZoHo is 80p per month. So I just set it up so my ZoHo emails come through my gmail app.

Cool, thanks. Will look into it.

There is free plan up to 5gb per user, only web access thought

That’s right! My bad, I remember now. I paid the 80p for IMAP because I don’t like their website

I use the email and invoicing (apps too for both).
Have you considered using a slightly modified gmail account with titles.

Adam.Khan@gmail.com might be taken but have you tried mr.adam.khan@gmail.com, Adam.Khan.Esq@gmail.com,or maybe even, dr.adam.khan@gmail.com.

I purchased a domain from Ionos at £1.20 as it is provided with a mailbox at zero additional cost.

The mailbox can be used to manage and use an infinite number of domain-related email addresses and an equally unlimited number of email forwarders.

Access the mailbox via any web browser and/or any IMAP client, or via Gmail or similar alias to provide Gmail tools such as spam-filtering etc, and arguably from a mobile device the Gmail app would provide the easiest access to the mailbox and its multiple domain-related e-addresses.

When coupled to a standard Gmail account you would have a freebie 15GB domain-related mailbox.

The only annual cost would be the optional domain renewal fee, currently typically about £12-£15.

Just be mindful of whatever mailbox name you create when using with an app as the normally hidden email headers / properties may contain the mailbox name / Gmail account name regardless of the domain-related email address(es) you are using - just depends on if / how you choose to use / configure an app or not.
