What are the differences between email & Gmail address

An email is the messaging software connected to the internet to receive and send messages from one source (person) to another (person). We cannot over emphasize the use of email address, it works very much.

As it’s been known, message between two people is very fast with the use of email address.

The Gmail address and email address are pronounced as if they are the same while they don’t. But, today in this article you will know the difference between them.

First of all, Gmail address should not be written as gmail address because Gmail means Google Mail.

Below are the additional differences between email and Gmail address;

  • Gmail is an email address powered by Google while email address is the collection of Yahoo Mail, Google mail, Zoho mail, Bing mail, etc.
  • With Gmail, you can use Google’s tools and services for free, for example, search something on Google web browser, use YouTube, advertise on Google, etc. 
  • For example, if you have an email address managed to you by Google, Yahoo, Zoho, etc., their names are Gmail, Yahoomail, Zohomail etc. respectively and all of them are called your email addresses.
  • The first capital letter in an email address identifies the email manager. Example, Gmail identifies Google Mail and Yahoomail identifies Yahoo Mail.
  • It should be understood that where ever your email address is requested, you can put down your Gmail address or yahoomail or zohomail in that email address requested box.
  • Every email address provider works similarly and any of them can make you get email address but Gmail by Google is the best one we recommend.
