• Gmail, one of the main email accounts you can get today, which coincides with the Google brand, meaning eventually you will also be able to join the new social networking site Google+ when it leaves its beta stage and goes out to the masses
• Hotmail is arguably the biggest email provider around at the moment, probably due to its Windows Live Messenger program and the fact that it runs with Internet Explorer.
• Yahoo is another incredibly popular email provider too, which can be used with Yahoo Messenger to keep in touch with all of your contacts through their instant messaging services.
To make your email ID on your chosen email provider website, you just have to visit the site and follow the instructions given. You can choose between signing up if you haven't already got your email ID or signing in if you have already got an account. If you have forgotten any of your email ID information, you merely have to click either the link referring to losing your password or losing your username/email address and they will send you an email containing your details to the account that you offered as an alternative account when you initially signed up to use the email services.
Then, all you need to do is open up your other email account, access the email and information then go back to the website and insert your password and email address and you will be able to access your emails again on your old account.
