[SOLVED] Need new mail service

Hi all!

As much as I love mailoo.org, based on it's principles, I have to sadly announce that I must jump ship.

The service is simply not reliable anymore, more often than not I cannot send or recieve e-mails. Which is pretty much the point of having e-mail in the first place.

So, now I am looking for an alternative. I will _not_ go back to Gmail, have been looking at both Zoho and GMX, but can't say I am overly impressed. Any suggestions would be welcome.

Thanks!

HMW

Some decent recommendations on this thread: http://crunchbang.org/forums/viewtopic.php?id=17432
FWIW, I settled on Lavabit.

Thanks. Lavabit it is, seems like what I was looking for. Sorry for (sort of) double posting.

Best,

That's what I thought as well - until I read their privacy policy:

On a final note, the Lavabit e-mail servers do record the IP address used to send an outgoing message in the header of an outgoing e-mail. Because of this, it is possible for the recipient of a message to identify what IP was used to send a message. We record this information in the message header so that law enforcement officials in possession of a message that violates the law can identify the original sender. Lavabit does not retain this information.

I am now with autistici.org and have been very happy with their services.

All right, always glad to help!

I am hesitant to post this for fear of confusing you, but if autistici.org reject your request for some reason, an equally good option would be Opera Mail. Between autistici.org, Opera Mail and my soon-to-be-properly-configured home mail server, I have attained pure email nirvana! smile
