    When I see articles on “how to move off Gmail”, I’m in the same position I was with regard to articles a decade or so ago about “how to move off Internet Explorer”… I never moved ON those things in the first place. In web browsing, I moved straight from Netscape to Mozilla. In e-mail, I’ve always used a desktop mail client (not M$ Outhouse) to get mail sent to my own domain.

      Thank you, dtobias, for reminding the internet of the technical superiority a proper beard ensures.

      It’s wonderful that you run a non-M$ mail client, but what do you use as incoming and outgoing servers? Your PC with mail client is NOT a server, beard or no.

        I use POP/SMTP on my web hosting provider (Dreamhost).

          ah i see. In my case I am the web hosting provider and looking to get out of the Email-serving business. Thanks for your reply.

    In searching for a gmail alternative, I always come across a catch. Labels. What email server supports labels instead of folders?

    Telecommunications service providers are required to hold metadata in Australia for two years now according to this recent bill. http://www.aph.gov.au/Parliamentary_Business/Bills_Legislation/Bills_Search_Results/Result?bId=r5375

    Does this nullify the advantages of FastMail to some degree?

      Not sure. The FastMail servers are in the U.S. It’s team is in Australia. Would need to ask them – which still might not give you a complete answer.

    I’ve been running my own mail server for over a decade. Also serving several small clients and I’m sick of it. The spam. The “how do i set up my phone to get email” The always URGENT! “Help I can’t get my email”? Looking for a better hosted option other than Gmail but not finding any winners. Godaddy? M$? ugh
