I can recommend protonmail. It´s also possible to get a domain and set up your own mailserver but you have to make sure it´s secure and updated.

Mail services are quite complex. You have to deal with spam, setup SPF and DKIM if you want your mails delivered to gmail, setup SSL, etc..
It is possible to do it on your home router if you are able to flash OpenWRT or something similar. You can then use Postfix and Dovecot or Cyrus ... or any other opensource MTA/MDA combination. Dedicated VPS at datacenter is for sure better ...
So unless you want to spend next year by learning WTH I'm talking about, go and create account on protonmail or any other provider I linked in previous post.

I didn't know OpenWRT could host an email server. I've used so many home brew routers over the years (because I wanted multi-WAN capability with aggregate speed instead of loadbalancing. I liked Pfsense and ran that for a couple years, seemed poweful and I could combine my 6 ISP's into one super fast connection which was awesome for awhile! Linking 3 4G connections (35/20 down/up), 2 25/5 DSL and one 70/20 Cable came to 225/100 down/up and it was like living in a super computer!
