I've been using Gmail for several years since it was invite only. I love the interface and up-time.
However, I'm getting fed up with their data mining of my emails. I just don't like it anymore seeing every other Adsense had containing targeted info from my emails (call me paranoid).
Anyways, any good alternatives out there? I'm referring especially to the gmail interface and speed which I enjoy.
I've tried virtually every free alternative under http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Compari...mail_providers
and most feel outdated compared to Gmail.
Was considering setting up my own email server, (rather renting one) but I haven't found a provider that provides such a neat interface as google.
So, other alternatives are paid route and I've been looking at Apple's MobileMe (officially 99$ per year, but I can find it for 45$ per year which is reasonable for 20gb of space).
It seems smooth
and "professional", it's also nice getting an email with a nice short domain (@me.com).
Anyone have any experience in this area?
Note: for MobileMe, I don't user Address book, an iPhone, or any of the calender stuff. Same goes for my current Gmail accounts. Purely email usage.
