So I need to get a new free email, but its been years since I have researched the free email providers. While I know how good Gmail, I'm not confortable with the the big G to have all my data. My requirements are:
a. longevity - I expect to use this account for many years so I don't want any service that might just disappear on me.
b. private - I'm totally not digging Hotmail, Yahoo, and Gmail attempts to become more social. I don't want to have a profile, buzz or whatever online. I only care for email
c. security - Must have encryption. Might use it with a desktop client and with iPhone mail app. Tips for keeping it secure appreciated.
d. must not close if I dont check it for a couple of months - dont want to have to worry of the account becoming inactive/deleted if I don't connect to it frequently
Thanks a lot for your help.
