1st place: Spring cleaning for your inbox

Who would have guessed that mail.com readers are such neat freaks?! Our post with simple hacks for decluttering your email was by far the most popular of our first three months. If you haven’t yet, try some of our simple tricks to bring more order to your inbox.

2nd place: Cloud storage by mail.com

Storing photos and documents online “in the cloud” is not only a secure option, but one that makes it easy to share files with friends and family.

4th place: Why (and how) to use email aliases

We think one of the coolest features of mail.com is that users can select from our 200+ domains to create up to ten email addresses (which we call aliases) in the same account. And you obviously think it’s cool, too – which explains the popularity of this post. If you haven’t checked it out yet, there’s no time like the present!

5th place: Phishing emails: How to protect yourself

Unfortunately, there are still cybercriminals out there who try to use email to scam unsuspecting users. This popular post helped you learn how to recognize fraudulent emails designed to trick you into revealing your passwords and other private information. If you haven’t read this article yet, it’s definitely worth five minutes of your time right now.

Honorable mention: 50th anniversary of email

As the authors of the mail.com blog, we also have favorites. We found this article the most fun so far – because if you haven’t guessed by now, we love a celebration! If you’re also a history buff or a technology lover, you’ll be fascinated by this look back at the early days of email.
