Default Need to et a new email address

The SO will need to get a new email address next month.

Can anyone recommend a provider (not necessarily free)?

She doesn't need any fancy facilities - just an address and access to POP and
SMTP servers. (Not web-based, e.g. Gmail.)

Presumably paying for such a service gives better odds that the company will
stick around...

Err Gmail has POP3 access

The following are the Gmail POP3 settings to configure any email client
program:
* Gmail POP server address: pop.gmail.com
* Gmail POP user name: your full Gmail address (including @gmail.com) Google
Apps users may have to enter
* Gmail POP password: Your Gmail password
* Gmail POP port: 995
* Gmail POP TLS/SSL required: yes

You can use POP and SMTP with gmail. You don't have to use the web
interface.

Have you considered buying a domain name too?

Register her own domain, then use the domain provider's POP and SMTP.
And easy to move if your first provider doesn't come up to scratch,
but it's the sort of thing that's bread and butter to most providers.

Err which is what you asked isn't it. Well I registered some others
than this one through Xcalibre and though I no longer use their hosting,
they have always been good. But as I say it's hard to screw this sort
of thing up.

I know how to access the GMail POP server, but not the SMTP server.

Gmx is OK. Its free and not oversuscribed by English people either so you
stand a good chance of getting a reasonable address

Just register a domain with e.g A123 and pay a minimal amount, and set
up your ownn.
