Nowadays, email is a key tool. In this page, I offer a large overview of my setup, exploration, and so on.
Email is basically made of three things: a provider, a client and a bunch of tools. In many instances, the frontier between those three things is blurry.
|iCloud||IMAP||No||5||Silently discard emails||Silently discard some “spam” emails, and the support cannot retrieve them|
|Gmail||Gmail||No||4||Privacy and non-standard||Non-standard technology + perfect if you want your emails to be read by Google|
|Outlook.com||Exchange||No||3||Non-standard||Non-standard technology (Exchange)|
|Office 365||Exchange||Yes||4||Great for collaboration||Overkilling if you just need one email address|
|Gandi||IMAP||No||4||Bad deliverability||Some of their servers are blacklisted, which means your emails can be received as “spam”|
|FastMail||IMAP||No||5||Great service, but the anti-spam is a disaster||Despite being in touch with the support, I couldn’t get a working anti-spam|
|G Suite||Gmail||No||4||See below|
For G Suite: YouTube (owned by Google) is a platform for hate speech against LGBTQ people and I don’t want my money to support this kind of company.
