Pixelfed will be a year old in a few days.

I'm a high school dropout that has never taken any CS or computer classes.

Web development is just a hobby of mine, I work in the auto industry.

I'm so proud of this project, I never would have imagined that I could make something like this.

Thank you for helping me realize credentialism isn't so important as you think. โค๏ธ :pixelfed:

I have compiled my official mail provider recommendations. With any provider, you must always use your own domain.


Good: Down to earth. Unlimited domains, storage, etc. Full marks for philosophical, ethical, and technical merits.

Bad: Difficult to set up. UI is a bit confusing. Advertises itself in your signature in the free plan. Apparently blocks VPN and Tor users (I have reached out to them about this).

Note: Was unable to evaluate their webmail


Good: excellent PGP support and good on other security fronts as well

Bad: requires google captcha, does not handle plaintext as well as I'd like, german leaks through into the english interface sometimes, too scatterbrained


Good: Goes above and beyond in support for various standards and protocols, handles plaintext email very well. Lots of good options for account security.

Bad: rough UI

## summary

migadu is hard to set up but is the best all-around offering. If you're security concious, has the best PGP support and good all-around security; has good account security options but no built-in PGP support.

Evaluated but not recommended: disroot, fastmail,,, protonmail, tutanota, riseup,, teknik, megacorp mail (gmail, outlook, etc)

On a bike ride, and at the end of the line... I ain't dipping my tire in that water though lol

PSA: Free Speech doesn't mean everyone has to give you a platform. Moderating content isn't #censorship. The current discussion around #FDroid and gab has nothing to do with free speech at all.

If you want to distribute an app that no one else wants to host make your own repo.
If you have an opinion that isn't welcome anywhere else make your own blog.
