Lost all e-mail from Oct. 14 - 20 >:\

If you sent me a personal e-mail in the past week, I no longer have it. >:\ Apparently either DreamHost or Thunderbird choked to death on the 20,262 e-mails I had waiting for me after I came back from vacation and thought it'd be an awesome idea to just give up and delete them all. THANKS. Thankfully, @lullabot.com goes somewhere else, so those are ok.

On a related note, anyone know of any decent e-mail providers? :P

Sigh. :(


Given your commitment to the Drupal community, I would gladly provide you with free email hosting. Peace.

you can hardly beat runbox in this matter. it's cheap, has a ton of storage and provides IMAP, SMTP over nonstandard ports etc.

Just use Gmail, if only as an archive of any other address you have. You can receive/send mail from/as any other account. Very reliable, and I even find the ads useful a lot of the time, not annoying.

I would highly recommend mailtrust.com. Their spam protection is amazing. Everyone.net is a nice alternative, with some different offerings.

I have 2 gmail accounts; one for my personal, and one for my business, which uses the google apps stuff, and thus my MX records point at googles servers, and I have a nice web interface for my business email address.

Most people don't even know that they are sending email to a gmail account because it's my own domain.

+2 on Gmail.
