Re: more secure e-mail

Thomas N. Chan

My point after a brief search about fastmail is, fastmail itself don't even provide end to end encryption. What's security to you then?
They use your data for analytics purposes but people say its breaching  of their data and they are sharing. So long they are not sharing with other people, using your data to see how you use their service and give you suggestion how they can help you is wrong to a lot of people?
Beside the point, Gmail provide you free email service, 15gb. storage. Provider usually don't give that much and you usually pay for higher   tier of storage. If you want security, trust your provider or trust your own. Or just host your own email service.
That's my point and take on security of email.

People don't wish to use Google as they're email service, and that's fine. There's no reason to question those decisions.

    I haven't used Fastmail myself, but it's something I've been looking into. I'm pretty sure it's something you could use with a client like Thunderbird, if you wanted to.

You can also pay them to get higher storage like google workspace and your own domain like etc. 
As for Microsoft, its rather tie down to office as well.
Personally, I have been using Google ap, change name to G-suite and now workspace for my own email and work.

Then again, that also depend how much you are willing to pay for your email service.
Did your telco/provider gave you one email?

Hello, I am thinking about purcheassing an e-mail service instead of using free e-mail from google or outlook. I was looking to fastmail as a possibility. Has anyone used this service before? Thanks Heather
