Best email provider
Last updated: October 28, 2020
Here's our favorite email provider: Fastmail.
Why: Fastmail provides email without engaging in tracking or surveillance of your private communications. Remember - if you're not paying for the product, you ARE the product (or as Shoshana Zuboff puts it, your behavioral data is being harvested as the product).
Business model: Paid monthly subscriptions. Not surveillance.
Whatever you do, don't use Gmail for email.
