My personal email is on my own domain, but is backed by Google’s GSuite. They claim that they don’t index and use the content for ads like they do with GMail, but I am skeptical. Maybe this year is when I finally migrate my email elsewhere... #FreeIsntFree
@cleverdevil I'm honestly surprised you haven't migrated away from Google already 😀 I made the switch from GSuite to FastMail last year like @Miraz. I couldn't be happier and if I had known how simple and issue-free the migration would be then I would have done it way sooner.
@chrispederick yeah, in many ways, I am surprised myself! I have been there for so long now, since the very beginning of “Google Apps for Your Domain,” and I have 10 or so domains there, with a bunch of users. It has always been the case that they wall off this portion of the service from their ad machine, which along with the fact that moving all of my email would cost hundreds of dollars per month has kept me from making the move.
Now, I am thinking of just moving my family email over, and leaving a bunch of other email on Google. That would greatly reduce the cost down to around $20/month on Fastmail, which is totally doable...
