Are there any free email services that do work reliably?

I am about to make a recommendation to a very inexpert (and
cash-strapped) user ... normally I would suggest paying a reputable
supplier for a domain and and mail hosting, but this user may not want
to fund it.

I suppose if you are needing emails for an important contact or business
then a paid for account is worth having.
I tend to use multiple free accounts, which are not always reliable.

Protonmail.com
Currently web/mobile only and 500MB storage space but that should be
ample. Also not spied and pried on to feed adverts to you like gmail etc
etc.

If you don't mind sharing absolutely everything with a corporation and
anyone they chose to sell data to.

An "inexpert" user might accidentally share very sensitive data by open
text e-mail.

User really needs IMAP since broaband round here is awful. Anything
web-only takes far too long to review mail held only on a remote server.
At least a local cache in the mail client helps this.

And you think they don't all do that? No-one can be relied on in that
regard,

The same applies to any service provider.

For various reasons Google sometimes cancels accounts and deletes any content in them. You are not paying and have no come back nor any redress if they do this.

I've never heard of it happening to anyone who behaves themselves and
sticks to their terms of service.
