    Question Gmail alternative

    Been looking for an alternative to Gmail, so far I have found Zoho mail and it seems pretty decent.

    Any other good (free) alternatives to Gmail?

    I am a pretty big fan of "Shortmail"

    It is very clean and simple, with no ******** emailing. I would recommend it to anyone.

    Seems like the twitter of the email world, anything without a 500 word limitation?

    There are actually packages in the repos that make Zoho integrate into Ubuntu really neatly. Install desktop-webmail to open any mailto links in Zoho mail, and webservice-office-zoho to open any document files in Zoho office.

    He may just want a different email. I know some people have moved away from gmail due some article's posted about the "invasion of privacy" that google does but the one thing you have to be careful off when reading some of these articles is that M$ has people on staff that there job is to post wrong information about the competition. My wife works for Samsung as a tier one tech rep and part of her training is over privacy policy so when people call in they can explain them and she has told me google does have the rights but they in no way shape or form actually do those things,

    What things? Google does customize ads based on keywords in emails, they keep records of google users' searches and website visits. They claim the right to track users' geographical location via their cell phones, if they've been given the cell phone numbers. They admit they do this, so what's that got to do with misinformation?
