since practically forever (over 10 years). I only use their forwarding and spam filtering service though, not their POP/IMAP capability. But FWIW they've been a great company to deal with -- very little downtime, and very responsive customer support.
Interesting. They seem to have a niche in the IT/CS world. I'm going to be look at these guys closely. I'm not a POP/IMAPer, but use webmail exclusively. I'm going to miss how gmail keeps re: emails of the same subject line together.
Yes, I disabled Buzz. But not until today. That's however many hours with my email running on settings I didn't set...and it was done by the provider, not an incredible hacker.
I totally don't mind an opt-in policy, but auto-opt-in is deal breaker for me. It's going to be a difficult move. I've been using Gmail since very early on (actually paid some dude for an invite lol). Got about 15 accounts or so and 6k+ in the inboxes of my primaries (I create expendable accounts that I then forward to a few "primaries"). Yeah, unfun.
Still considering going a DYI approach. I would really like to setup a private digital library for me and my techie friends, e.g. FTP server on steroids, something we can autoset our HTPCs to backup/upload to and have an electronic loaning system for movies. But I'm cheap, lazy, and FiOS isn't in the area.
