I've been using #protonmail for a few years now and I can safely say DO NOT use it. Fortunately I have my own domain 'cause otherwise I don't know how I'd switch off. They DO NOT support IMAP/POP and they DO NOT support forwarding emails to another address automatically. Just needed to get this off my chest.
@Lofenyy I really wanted to like Proton but working around these two flaws is enough to be very annoying. I can't speak for other services. My plan is to make the perilous leap to a self-hosted solution soon.
@mmn I have and it does work but it's super inconvenient for me anyway. I'll likely end up using it to transition to a self-hosted solution unless it gives me any trouble on an Ubuntu 20.04 server
@specter never tried it on Ubuntu, but hold no hopes. If you go self hosted, mailcow.email and SpamHero.com are your friends. It's what I use for my own self-hosted emails, and SpamHero strips your headers which is always good
