What is, from your point of view, the best Mailbox provider?


I personally am okay with Hotmail, but M$ wants (like every other company) too much data.

@eclipse.cx

Unfortunately for you, you need to be at least a moderator to get an @eclipse.cx email.

I would then suggest cock.li, but they closed registrations.

I would then suggest riseup, but you need a invitation for that.

So currently, you're kinda fucked.

thats some nice self advertising right there.
I have thought about SAFe-Mail being a viable option, but their services are just laughable compared to todays standards.
They offer you 3 MB Storage for free accounts and a monthly 5$ subscription for 10 MB.

Gmail and Outlook work well :). If you own a domain you could also set up your own email system.

Gmail and Outlook are owned by Google and Microsoft. There's your problem.

gmx.co.uk offer POP3/IMAP support, up to ten alias addresses, etc. - you can also get a fancier domain over at mail.com, though POP3/IMAP support is disabled and 'premium' options seem to only be available to US customers.

Only issue I had with them is that their spam filter is ridiculously aggressive and sending/receiving can be rejected by other servers to a GMX box, similarly to a Yandex mailbox. phpBB boards in particular seem to drop any form of activation message to a GMX mailbox.

Mozilla's Thunderbird if you count CLIENTS but mail.com if you are talking about SERVICES

There's a reason Google, Microsoft, etc. are all free. It's because you're the product. They're harvesting your information. If you want an email provider who doesn't, either set up a mail server yourself (probably the best idea) or find a privacy oriented provider that'll probably charge you.

cock.li was the best
Next best thing is protonmail which is most likely a honeypot. So really idk, everything sucks.
When i finally managed to switch to cock.li i was really starting to think i should just nuke everything, i'm sick of all the privacy invasive crap, i'd rather just not deal with it anymore.
