In my growing understanding of surveillance capitalism, I’m reconsidering my use of Gmail. This would be a huge move as I’ve used Gmail since it was invite-only and both my emails are Google Site installations (personal and university). Still, I want to at least consider what all may be involved in making the switch.
Has anyone successfully done this? What service did you go with and do you have any resources to recommend, tips, or regrets? What sort of costs are involved?
Ideally I’d use Apple Mail (which I’ve been using for a year now w/ and w/o qualms) or Mailmate. One deal breaker is that I must be able to retain my personal email address email@example.com and also be able to move over all my messages (hundreds of thousands at this point).
Thanks for any advice,
