Can anyone recommend a really solid email hosting alternative to gmail? Attempting to purge my life of companies that treat their users like products.
@donavon i've been using runbox for a few years now :)
@mikedol Thanks :) I'll give it a look
@robjloranger Thanks :) Added both to my list to compare
@robjloranger @donavon @mikedol ProtonMail has IMAP support for paying customers. That means if enabled, you should be able to use Thunderbird or whatever if you want. They also have a .onion address if you want extra protection while using Tor. And, here's their source code https://github.com/ProtonMail.
Hosting your own mail service always ends in tears and bald spots.
@donavon I currently use posteo.net - feels pretty solid and good, and the price is not too big (about 1 Euro/month).

@switchingsocial Semi-related: Is there any reason why Mailbox.org isn't listed? In my opinion they do a really great job at providing a really great (paid, but cheap) e-mail service.
Thanks for that, I've added it to the list!
@donavon Do you have a personal domain? Most domain providers offer email as a paid extra.
