GMail hacked - Suggested alternatives?

Coming up to 7 weeks ago my 4 year old gmail account was hacked. Google have sent me any number of standard form emails promising action but nothing has happened so I have lost 3 years worth of email and contacts. Let that be warning to back up data in your webmail account as well!

In the mean time I have been using a .mac trial account but that has now expired and so I am looking for an alternative. Ideally it would have the following features:

  • Able to get mail from other POP3 boxes
  • Able to use my own domain for the email address
  • A reasonable amount of storage - at least 2-3 gig
  • Not append ads or similar to emails
  • Have a fast and sensible user interface. Something at least better than 1&1!

Any thoughts?

Merlin used to crank. He’s not cranking any more.

This is an essay about family, priorities, and Shakey’s Pizza, and it’s probably the best thing he’s written. »
