Email Services for Apex

I've been using Inbox.com for the last few years as it was the last of the non-paid emails services I could find that didn't require SSL which the Apex cant handle. They just went paid last week and I lost my account. Does anyone else know of a free email service that doesnt require SSL and will work with Apex?

Is there a reason you aren't using the alerting built into Apex Fusion?

I second Fusion. I used to have GMX, but gave it up because Fusion performs the same function more reliably and for free.

Once your Apex is linked to Fusion click on your username in the upper right and select "Notifications" then add your email/SMS to the list of notification devices.

I have fusion setup too. I don't like the emails dispatched by the fusion as it only tells you the trigger line of code that caused the email it doesn't tell you the status of all parameters ( like temp, ph, amps) and status of all outlets. In cases where it goes offline shortly after the alarm you don't have this valuable data troubleshoot with. This is particularly helpful when I'm out of town and am trying to get someone to help remotely. I had gmx years ago, they are gone now

I set up an email account on GMX in preparation for Apex notifications. I'm not using it much. But, it is still active!
