I would recommend Tutanota over Protonmail.


Protonmail is playing office diversity politics.

Tutanota's search is unusable and they don't support IMAP. If they fixed one of those two things, I could have stayed with them.

I don't think that PM diversity page is such a big issue. They're using 'diversity' language to just talk about doing things that are basic common sense. It's not like they pledged to hire all black sysadmins regardless of their abilities or something like that.

This is literally how all these companies started with their bullshit.

Tutanota is not technically an email provider. It's a secure messaging system. If you ever leave you cannot take your messages with you. Anyone who wants to read your emails will need to open a link in their browser to respond. I use Protonmail.

I use Fastmail. The tier I pay for I get unlimited sub-accounts which makes it easier to filter out companies that spam you with email.

ProtonMail (free account) to replace gmail on our phones, StartMail (paid account, with multiple alias addresses) for everything else.

E-mail is anti-privacy. Nobody uses encryption/pgp on it, you generally have to associate multiple sights to an email connected to you (like banking or your ISP), and half of it isn't even encrypted at all.

Honestly learn how to use encryption before complaining about privacy, because knowing encryption IS privacy.

For about $20-50 a year you can have your own custom domain name. You could be [email protected]

The most secure and private method of having email is to get your own domain and run your own email server. A domain will cost you $20 bucks a year, and you can spend anywhere from $5 to $500 dollars a month to run your own email server remotely. Doing it from your own home would require a dependable internet connection, with a stable IP address, and could be done with less than one hundred dollars invested in hardware. Any working computer from the last twenty years could also handle the job.

$20/yr

Dot coms are $8.88/yr on namecheap

$5/mo

If all you want is a little email server you can get away with $3/mo on ramnode.
