What's the best Email provider?

Question is in the title. Like what's the most safe/secure? I remember a while back yahoo had tons of account details leaked or something, well where am I least likely to have that happen and make sure things are as secure as possible for sending sensitive information?

The one you host yourself.

But that takes skills and knowledge.

So rise up, all ye lost ones, as one, we'll claw the clouds

Choose a reputable hosting provider, buy a domain, and pay for private email hosting. That's your best option.

Thanks for reading all this by the way!

By the way, my desktop is a docked laptop. Get over it, No seriously, I have an exterrnal monitor, keyboard, mouse, headset, ethernet and cooling fans all connected. Using it feels no different to a desktop, it works for several hours if the power goes out, and disconnecting just a few cables gives me something I can take on the go. There's enough power for all games I play and it even copes with basic (and some not-so-basic) video editing. Give it a go - you might just love it.

well if we knew which service provider was the weakest, that means we know their vulnerabilities isnt it? and that's not good

imo there's no security on the internet and everything is breach-able.

Things I need help with:

Spoiler

none atm

 

I hate Intel's pricing, Ryzen's weird quirks, Nvidia's pricing, and Radeon GPUs in general

 

Spoiler

 

Products I like:

Spoiler

Sony Xperia Z1 / Z2 / 10 ii, Asus Strix 970 / 1070, Samsung SSD, WD HDD, Corsair PSUs (AX, RM, CX(grey)), GeForce GPU, NZXT N450/S340, be quiet! Coolers, G.Skill Trident RAM, Logitech M525, Logitech G440, Razer Deathadder Elite

 

Products I hate:

Spoiler

Xperia Z3, XiaoMi 5c, Radeon GPUs, Razer Audio Products, any bloatwares

 

Companies I absolutely adore: (and hope it stays that way)

Spoiler

be quiet! - sent me AM4 mounting for my DRP3 even though it's way past the timeframe stated, no questions asked

Corsair - very good RMA experience, absolutely recommend

 

Companies I hate:

Spoiler

Nvidia, Intel, Apple, TMT (Thundermatch, a retailer)

 

Personal Blacklisted Companies:

Spoiler

Acer: shit tier quality products, shit tier customer service thus far, they "tried" to solve my issue but they arent really doing anything but delaying and delaying. (on-going case since July)

Gigabyte: horrible customer service (gigabyte had literally 0 customer service, asked me to go to retailer with NO WAY to email them about a question) but at least they fixed my shit in ONE MONTH (would probably take me 1 hour to fix if they let me email them)

XiaoMi Phones: built like a tank but the software is buggy as all hell

Seagate HDD: had too many dead seagate drives

Kingston SSD: 300V controller swap thingy

Razer (except their mouse)

 

Remember, just because I had good/bad experiences with these companies/product, doesn't mean you will have similar experiences too. I would still recommend these products if they made sense for your needs, but I'll add a disclaimer of my experience if it's relevant. Feel free to DM me asking why they are where they are.

TBH that would probably be hosting your own Email domain. There's security in anonymity. If you're a small fry and nobody knows about you they have no reason to try and hack you. Though this comes with many challenges that most people wouldn't go through the hassle of setting up.

 

As for commercial options really any of the big players are fine. It doesn't matter how tight security is someone will find a hole somewhere and exploit it eventually but out of all of them I haven't heard significant leaks happening to gmail.

Host your own.

 

Otherwise, i've been using Hotmail for useless stuff, and gmail for my primary mail. Dont use email that often tho.

Hosting your own mail server is something I don't recommend at all. It takes a lot of knowledge to make it secure. And even then, one could argue that a team of experts at a major provider can, in most cases, provide better security than you can maintain. Also, in my experience, it's expensive in low volumes.

No, hosting one's own mail server isn't sensible unless you really know what you're doing.

 

But you can pay many webhosts to manage it for you. That's probably the most secure option if you're prepared to pay.

If you are willing to pay just go with a nice O365 solution and call it a day.

I think I might try either Protonmail or Yandex mail.

 

BTW I really appreciate the laptop-only lifestyle. Can I ask what laptop you use? Also what does your docked cooling setup consist of?

Yandex is Russian secret service bitch pretty much, nothing is secure there.

I know, but I was thinking on one hand atleast MY government wouldn't have access to it. Not that I'm doing anything to garner the attention of my government.

VPN is the only choice for proton in Russia. It's also not particularly user friendly, but it is secure.

I have answered that in a status message.
