No gmail, no problem

Something strange happened tonight. My gmail account had no messages in it for a change. I’ve been steadfastly using gmail for various emailing for quite a while now, but tonight, there’s no mail in there and everything else has been backed up seperately.

Although I really quite like a number of the Google services, I’ve reached a point where I don’t feel comfortable using a Google Account to track my life. I dislike hosting any email with a third party but I tollerated gmail – because it’s Google, right? Yet still, I’ve realized that the only email solution I feel comfortable with is one I run myself – and now I think I’ve almost got the reliability I need too.
