@trevdev I don't do any of the others, but getting off gmail is hard.
I stopped running a (closed!) postfix relay in about 2005. Just too much spam. And even just sending mail is hard these days even with spf and dkim. I don't know what to do. I use zoho as well - just because it's not google, but it has the same business idea. And proton mail. there's also mailpile...

@gemlog @trevdev for a private mail server run something like iredmail and you should be fine. mails definitely should be stored local and not on 3rd party.

@kmj @trevdev iredmail : i will read about this later today. I stopped letting postfix be a (closed!) relay in about 2005, because too much spam to deal with. Beysian filtering is a good thing IF you have enough data. I gave up.

@gemlog @trevdev Posteo.de and Mailbox.org are pretty good in my experience. They each cost 1 Euro per month, but I think it's worth the cost.

@nutomic @gemlog @trevdev +1 for Posteo and mailbox.org (both using green energy and open source software).

Hey @trevdev do you know of tosdr.org/ ?

Nice visualization by the way. Keep it up !

Awesome vinnl@mastodon.social Thanks for pointing that out I hadn't looked them up ๐Ÿ˜

@trevdev OK, I know "nobody ever reads the EULA", but this is too much! ๐Ÿ˜ฎ

@trevdev just playing devil's advocate, a lot of these terms are just to prevent lawsuits that are obviously ridiculous. It is a problem, though, that they can hide unreasonable terms in with the mountain of reasonable terms. Maybe what we need is a system where the terms get compared against terms you've seen before and are fine with.
