@Hunaja maybe think about getting a domain. Then you can choose a hosting but not depend on them, and be able to move at will without a lengthy process of updating accounts and informing people. Plus, it's cool!
@davidblinux @Matter Yeah, I'm sure it's an upgrade (and probably even a good one), but since the process of changing is so damn tedious, I decided to go for a long term solution. I don't want to jump from a burning car to a car that's only a tiny bit aflame. I'd really hope for a car that doesn't even smoke!
@davidblinux Ah, but I'm not hosting an email server myself. I'm buying a domain and then attaching an email service (from the same provider) to that domain. This way I will have the same email address for as long as I own the domain and I can change the hosting service at will, like @Matter mentioned. So if I start disliking the service provider, I can change freely, without having to worry about my email address changing as well. Very handy (and cool!).
@Hunaja @Matter These allegations are false, and have also been refuted by the Swiss public prosecutor. You can find more details here: https://protonmail.com/blog/martin-steiger-false-statements/
@Hunaja nice move. I switched to Protonmail a year or so ago and haven't looked back. Its been a good experience.
@jordan31 Glad to hear that, although (as you see from the discussion below the op), I decided to go for a domain and an email service.
@Hunaja Awesome, what ever works best for you.
