Fast forward to July 15, 2016 (there’s that lab journal again…) when, after receiving an email from Google asking me to indicate how exactly I would like them to use my data to customise adverts around the web, and after thinking for a bit about what kind of machine learning tricks I would be able to pull on you with 12 years of your email, I decided that I really had to make alternative plans for my little email empire.

Somehow FastMail came up and in one of those impulsive LET'S WASTE SOME TIME manoeuvres, I pressed the big red MIGRATE button!

The rest of this post is my mini-review of the FastMail service after almost 3 weeks of intensive use.

I'm pretty sure at least some of you are contemplating a similar migration, away from companies like Google, Microsoft, and Apple, to something else.

RE[2]: To host or not to host ...

Thanks for the reply. You know - Synology is here for long. Not sure how stable their modules are, but ... Zentyal have changed in 2 years completly, ruining everything many ppl planned.

I simply don't belive in anything long term. Maybe to go with some Ubuntu LTS and hand tuning everything.

But then I am missing some GUI toolkit above it. I looked into the ISP panel for eg., but it seems kind of complicated - doing something in GUI, I always looked into configs, what did the GUI do underneath.

Maybe I should write those few of dialogs for my colleagues in some simple GUI creation language like Red for e.g :-)
