  1. 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.

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

    2. 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.

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

  4. 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?

    1. 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.

  5. 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
