Years ago (before becoming more privacy-sensitive #infosec) I got a #googlemail #gmail account.
Apparently I can't use it anymore with my email client (#thunderbird) without giving Google my mobile phone number. Which I won't.
❓ What email provider would you recommend, that does not do shady things with my data?
It should work with an email client, which excludes web-interface-only providers. Preferably free if possible, but I am okay with paying a service I can trust.
I am working on a search engine #babelia. Unlike a todoapp, it requires more hardware, having an idea of how much people are willing to spend upfront or by subscription renting a server will help me figure what kind of hardware I need to acquire to be able to test the algorithms.
Thanks for you cooperation! (and please boost!)

Hi fedi, I am going to write a guide to choose a fediverse instance. If you're on a public one, can you review it? Some hint questions, but don't feel limited by them:
- Is the local timeline active?
- Are people friendly?
- What topic do people often talk about?
- Is there a diversity in points of view or or do you feel more like an echo chamber?
- Anything noteworthy not in the about page?

Feel free to boost for more experienced eyeballs.
