    Lightbulb Email service

    Not sure if I'm posting in the correct place but...

    I am over Google, its a good service and all but I'm over it. I use Gmail but would quickly convert if Canonical made an email service, maybe even Ubuntu One Email! If this service came out, I would switch ASAP!

    If Canonical did create this theoretical service would you switch?

    Maybe, but for now gmail is fine for me.
    I rarely get spam in it and it has a great amount of space.

    Re: Email service

    If a new service came out, I'd probably stick with the service I currently use. Until, of course, I have too many "senior moments" to cope with keeping my email server up-to-date and spam free.

    And yes, I do have a handful of hotmail, Yahoo and gmail accounts, most of which are either forwarded to my server or retrieved via fetchmail.

    Never assume that information you find using a search engine is up-to-date.

    There is that, and I have nothing against Google (well, maybe I do a little) but, with the Ubuntu Phone OS coming out, I think it would be a nice feature to have.

    Gmail is a good service but I like to be a bit different

    Doesn't your ISP provide email service?

    I use both my ISP, and Gmail, I also have an Ubuntu.com email address, but that is only an alias to one of my ISP provided email accounts.

    Fair enough, I just don't want to help Google take over the world!

    And I like anything Ubuntu, and would persionally love to have my email with my favorite company (Canonical), not one I dislike (Google) or one I hate (Microsoft), and not one that I kinda dislike (Yahoo).

    (No offense to anyone that likes those companies)

    I just don't like Google, and if I were to move I would love to move to something made by Canonical!

    Re: Email service

    Some people do want this, I don't care if the email address is example@one.ubuntu.com!
    I would use it!

    Think about it this way, Ubuntu one, a great cloud service, all it's missing is email!

    ^^ I did not submit this, other people want it too!

    Re: Email service

    I would also be interested in an Ubuntu E-Mail Account.

    And it would also help increase the awareness of Ubuntu every time someone receives a E-Mail from a @Ubuntu.com user.

    There are many options that could be used such as...
    @Ubuntu.com
    @Ubuntu.org
    @UbuntuOne.com
    @UbuntuOne.org
    @UbuntuMail.com
    @UbuntuMail.org

    My two preferences would be either @Ubuntu.com or @UbuntuMail.com.

    In the meantime there is the option to create a @Linuxmail.org E-Mail address at Mail.com...
    http://service.mail.com/registration...-getaccount1-1

    Or you could also add a Signature to your E-Mail like I have that also includes a Link to Ubuntu.com to help increase the Awareness of Ubuntu (See Attached Screenshot).
