I'm ready to start fresh with a new webmail provider. No Gmail and no social-ready providers. I want email for email - nothing else. I looked over some past threads but they included some providers that no longer exist or have been bought up by bigger players. I also would like something that is more than a re-brand of SquirrelMail. I'd be willing to pay up to $50 a year for a good provider. Oh, for users of Fastmail, since FM is now owned by Opera, has the service improved? I never liked the "old" Fastmail's confusing and cumbersome interface and customer service was always a pain. I paid for 2 years and gave up on them - but that's been a few years ago before the Opera takeover. Suggestions for a new Webmail provider in 2012 --- and why? Thanks as always!
