by Powertrip (#25123137) Attached to: Email-only Providers? - Runbox offers a bunch of domains (like FastMail), POP and IMAP access, interesting support of text-messaging notifications, lots of storage (including FTP file storage access) for a pretty low price. I've been using them as a provider for many years now, and have been very happy with the service.

How many of you log in to work over a VPN or ssh-tunnel? How many get usenet news, or email over an encrypted connection. This could be a problem for Rogers Cable customers. Michael Geist, who happens to be the "Canada Research Chair of Internet and E-commerce Law" at U of Ottawa, has "been advised that the University computer help desk has received a steady stream of complaints from Rogers customers about off-campus email service.""
