So what is everybody's favorite email server/provider.  I'm currently on yahoo, but am wanting to switch because I can't stand all their stupid news, usually bashing trump or something "sweet" some queers did. 

I tried yandex, but started getting wierd texts from moslem people shortly after, so that went bye bye.

I'd rather have it free, but if there's something inexpensive but worth it I'd try.

Google/Gmail.  It's free and I don't care about privacy. If they want to read reminder messages for doctor's appointments, more power to them and their Fed masters.

GMail is pretty solid. Privacy probably isn't the greatest, but I don't do anything noteworthy anyways so who cares.

Outlook/Hotmail. Been using it ever since 2008/2009-ish. Forget Microsoft's monopoly on privacy, but the best part is there's no worldly weird news or ads to deal with, though things can get slightly messy if you leave 1000+ mails unread, heh.

I'm pretty happy with gmail. I've been using them for over 10 years.
In conclusion, I can leave you with no better advice than that given after every sermon by Msgr Vincent Giammarino, who was pastor of St Michael’s Church in Atlantic City in the 1950s:

    “My dear good people: Do what you have to do, When you’re supposed to do it, The best way you can do it,   For the Love of God. Amen.”

I recently moved to Proton mail

I already have a gmail account, it just doesn't have my name so it might confuse people.  Maybe I'll just open another

Main personal use is gmail. I also have a domain w/ private email that I use for business purposes (resumes, signing up for software trials, etc.). Several non-gmail burner accounts as well.

I have gmail, but use for generic communications.  For friendsl/family communications, I like zoho.com (it's free, and multiple accounts can be established)
We have a paid account with cryptogroup.  I recently researched encrypted email accounts however, and cryptogroup is overpriced, so I'll be switching.
