Windows 7: and other mail alternatives

23 Apr 2013   #1 and other mail alternatives

Hi all,

Growing tired of Google's privacy policies I'm starting to look for an alternative.

I've been trying out GMX for a few days and it seems impressive. It's interface is sleek, nice looking and fast.

Does anyone else have any other mail providers they would like to recommend?

Obviously hotmail and the like are not of interest to me.

There is no perfect inbox.
You can change your mailbox but what if you have to send email to another person who use gmail or other email account with much worse privacy policy than google?
Email has often been likened to postcards - the actual reality is far worse. Would you like to find your personal correspondence pinned up next to the office coffee machine for all to see or posted on the small ads board at the local corner shop? When you send e-mail it hops from computer to computer, where en-route, anyone can intercept it. If you use a dial up connection it sits in a transparent mailbox awaiting your collection.

Because of that you can start to use PGP/GPG to encrypt/signing your emails.
PGP is useful for two things:
1. Privacy and Security
2. Authenticity. By privacy, I mean that you can prevent people from seeing things. For example, you can encrypt an email to someone, or encrypt a file with a list of passwords. By Authenticity, I mean that you can ensure a message was sent/written by the person you think it was, and that it wasn't modified by a third party.
