Email services

🔖 https://jlelse.blog/micro/2022/01/switching-purelymail

My current email server Protonmail, while reliable and easy to get started, ends up indirectly holding you hostage, if you need to add your own domain name, it comes with a steep cost of € 48 per year (not to mention there is no official support for IMAP for the free tier). The next best option I had seen so far was mailbox.de with the same at € 36 per year.

Purelymail is an interesting service offering this and much more at $ 10 per year. Looks like an indie operation from the website, but it does come with a compelling pricing. It is, however a US based company so all the privacy caveats attaches with the service. Although the company themselves do not sell any data, they do acknowledge the limitations in their approach. Nevertheless I am curious to know how it goes for jlelse.
