    Proton Mail is a good alternative. A good thing to watch for a either a lack of or a very limited free account. This means they’re not making money off harvesting your data. If it’s free, you’re the product.

      I get your point and also have a Proton subscription, but is the Proton Mail free tier really that limited? 1GB of inbox space seems plenty to me for most “casual” users, especially if you regularily clean up mails you don’t need anymore. The paid tiers are definitely interesting if you do more than that though.

        I agree, most emails are just a few dozen kB so 1GB is more than enough if you maintain your inbox. I probably should have said to avoid ones with crazy amounts of storage for free, the 10GB or 15GB services for example (some even more now). 1GB for free, plus free server usage and encryption features is a heck of a deal given that they don’t spy on you. Their paid plan prices are very reasonable on top of that.
