Before starting to see in detail how to access email, it is good to immediately clarify one point. By now all the main e-mail services are no longer simple providers of addresses and online spaces but real Web mails, ie Internet sites through which it is possible to read and write messages without installing any program on the computer. It all works directly and conveniently from the browser but the emails are not saved on the computer.
However, those who prefer standard email programs can use these services in the old way, using them only as addresses to receive their mail in the program installed on their multimedia workstation (in this case, the messages are saved on the hard disk of the computer).
As for the mobile side, in the face of a greater degree of practicality, in order to access email it is advisable to download and install the reference app of the chosen email service or in any case another application capable of acting as a client on smartphone and tablet.

The first service to access emails that I want to suggest you use is gmail. If you have never heard of it (strange, very strange indeed!), Know that it is one of the most used e-mail services in the world. It is completely free and also by creating an email address with the same you get the opportunity to access all the other "projects" of Google: YouTube, Maps, Google Drive and so on.

Now let's move on to Outlook.com, another "milestone" in terms of e-mail. It is in fact the Microsoft home email service that has taken the place of Hotmail and Live Mail. It should not be confused with Outlook, the client for managing the "digital correspondence" Office package. It is totally free, Outlook.com addresses can have three different suffixes (user choice) and also gives access to all online services from Microsoft, such as OneDrive and all online Office applications. That said, in the following lines I'll explain how to create an account and how to log in to it.
