After almost 10 years of using Gmail, I’m really starting to become wary of the direction Google is moving towards. They really seem determined to turn all of their services into some sort of integrated, “alternative Internet” experience, and that’s not what I’m looking for. So, a little request for help: Does anyone know a good service that just offers email? No managing your contacts for you, no “social circles”, no single sign-on for a bunch of websites, just plain old email?
(I guess on the long run, the best solution would be to find a server and just install an email server software on it. But I’m not there yet)
