    Can anyone recommend a good, secure email service that plays well with the hub? I have been using Gmail since my ISP ditched their email server (grrr), but want to get away from them.

    Free would be nice, but I could pay a monthly fee if that's what it took to guarantee genuinely private email.

    I like outlook.com

    Secure "enough" in terms of malicious hacking.

    But still addressable by a state-sponsored actor if that's what you're trying to avoid.

    Yahoo is a great choice so that anyone can just retrieve any emails necessary without you having to actually send because they’ve proven a three year old could hack their system.

    If privacy from targeted, legal government investigations isn't a concern, then a good corporate email provider such as Goigle's G Suite or Office 365 cloud Exchange Server is very secure and protected from commercial data sharing.

    If you want more privacy I would look at setting up a Fastmail account with or without an alias.

    If privacy and security, including from government investigation, is your goal, I would recommend Proton Mail, which utilizes end-to-end encryption for email sent between Proton Mail accoubts, but which does not integrate with email clients like Outlook, Gmail, etc., in addition to taking other measures.

    First there is no secure email service that would integrate with Hub. That said there is still a workaround for PGP depending on which application you get to run PGP.

    My recommendation is to opt for Protonmail which is based in Switzerland.

    The nice advantage of their email app is you can actually open the headers and see the full track of where the email has been.
