Originally published in October, 2017 – over three years later in 2021 I am still happily using Posteo!
I have been taking back control over my data. One of the biggest jumps I made was to ditch Gmail in favor of a privacy-conscious email provider, Posteo. Of all the email providers suggested by PrivacyTools.io, I chose Posteo because of their commitment to sustainability, transparency, and self-sufficiency. They support full encryption of all user data, and yet do so in a way that supports the standard IMAP, CalDAV, and CardDAV protocols for easy syncing.
