Please recommend a non-ISP related email provider


[link to this post]
 
It would be interesting to have your views on a good non-ISP related email provider.

Not for me personally, but for those who suffer with TalkTalk, BTInternet & similar providers who seems to be suffering more & more problems as time goes by.

I have my own domain, and email is forwarded to both FastMail & RunBox to provide an element of redundancy.

I would happily recommend either, but so many people only want a free service, and generally such a service is worth about what one pays for it.

I tend to recommend GMail, but warn potential users about data-mining.

Other ideas most welcome.

I was with BT for years and changed over to Fastmail after they kicked up their price and never looked back. Far superior service and dead easy to set up with powerful built in tool to migrate your mail from your old provider.

If you email Fastmail they will send you details to try an actual email test account for a quick look.

Hope that helps

Google Apps for Work is nice and a lot of advanced features. Plus it's handy to integrate with other system if needed.
The service's privacy policy also states that the data is yours - https://support.google.com/work/answer/6056650?hl=en
