Question Email provider(s) with LifeTime plans/subscriptions?

Hi, Everyone ,

I'm seeking for reliable/trusted e-mail (WebMail) provider(s) offering LifeTime plans/subscriptions (one-time payment ). Can someone of you think of any? I'd really appreciate your answer .

Of course, the more features they provide the better, but the key ones I fundamentally need are:
- LifeTime plan/subscription (one-time payment)
- ± 1 GB of storage at least (again, the more the better for sure)
- web-access
- HTTPS, SSL/TLS
- POP/POP3 (that I prefer over IMAP)
- SMTP
- auto-forwarding + filters (rules)
not too strict or (preferably) no message/bandwidth/etc. quotas
- not too strict email attachment size limits: 20+ MB would be fine, 30+ - perfect; no email attachments number limit
- not too strict other restrictions (such as number of To:, CC:, BCC: recipients, etc.)

Aliases or at least plus-addressing (or, even better, both) would certainly be quite some advantage for me.

Could anyone assist with this please as I've tired of searching the Internet for no avail? I'd really appreciate any help.
NOTE: I need this not for generating something like a bulk mailing and especially not for originating any kind of junk/spam (definitely not!).
Regards,
S0T

There are quite a few free email providers which offer all (or nearly all) facilities you require.

Indeed, thanks, but are there some paid ones (lifetime ) that come to your mind?

Can't think of any. Fastmail.com used to have lifetime accounts many years ago but they got discontinued and users were forced to upgrade to something standard (i.e. paid yearly)

Lifetime Promo!
We have a very limited number of lifetime packages to sell. These include 10GB storage, unlimited email accounts, unlimited domains, and 300 outbound emails per hour limit. All regular features included like Crossbox, Roundcube, Rainloop, and our DirectAdmin-based control panel. Get it now for $125, when it's sold out there may not be any more!

Of course by "lifetime" it means until the company folds or changes its mind. Personally, I wouldn't ever want to lock myself in to any service for a lifetime. There could be a tech revolution tomorrow that would make it obsolete.

The lifetime price is equivalent to less than 3 years' subscription to the mxroute's "small" plan, which as far as I can tell offers everything the OP wants.
Mxroute offers no trial periods and no refunds, so think before you jump.

They are also very strict on spammers using their service:

https://mxroute.com/policy/

Quote:
Outgoing spam from our servers will not be tolerated. Spam is defined as unsolicited e-mail. All mailing lists must be double opt-in, meaning that clients must sign up and then verify their e-mail address to be added to your mailing list. Violations of this policy will result in service termination. Spam found to be intentional will result in us sharing your name, e-mail address, phone number, address, IP address, signup domain, and PayPal e-mail address with FraudRecord.com. Additionally, intentional unsolicited marketing emails will be billed at a rate of $1 per email.
Quote:
Commentary: We know intentional spam from unintentional spam. We know a password compromise from you sending an unsolicited marketing email for your company. How we do that is a trick of the trade, but there’s no room for false positive. If we terminate you for spamming, you did it and you know it. Plenty of customers accidentally send spam due to compromised systems on their side, and we only terminate for that if we’ve been asking you to fix it forever and it just won’t stop happening.

Hi, Everyone ,

Thanks for the replies!

I have no experience in buying or owning domains or hostings, so sorry if I'm wrong about something, but MXroute appears to me more a domain/hosting provider than a webmail one, no? Anyway, this is at least something, thanks!

One question: does MXroute seem reliable/trusted enough to you? What do you, guys, think?

FredOnline, I'm planning to mainly receive emails rather than send them, so no worries. The only problem I can think of: whether they can get my money, but then (after some time) terminate my account for some alleged, not real or actual reason ...

https://www.securemyemail.com offers a "$99.99 Limited-Time Lifetime plans". No idea how good they are but it has a 30 day free trial. No guarantee the lifetime subscription offer will still be available 30 days from now, it seems to be a periodic sale they offer to a limited number of customers.

They are a product of Witopia, which was founded in 2005.

Securemyemail is a very different kettle of fish:

Thanks, guys, but yes, neither Mailchimp nor SecureMyEmail look like what I'm seeking for, unfortunately.

If censorship is a concern, Mailchimp may give reason for pause. Article: Mailchimp to censor content at its "sole discretion"
