Let’s admit, we all use Gmail to receive and send emails. Compared to all other email services, Gmail is pretty easy to use, and the most important thing is it’s free for all. You can store as many emails as you want within the free 15GB storage. You can attach documents, photos, videos, and other file types to your emails via Gmail.
