There isn't much labour to the domain stuff - usually this is quite simple and just requires you fill the address (fastmail/gmail/hotmail etc) you want the email sent to your domain to go to. This is...

Not sure where you got 1+1=3 from here. In simpler terms FM's core business, what drives its revenue, is being affected by this change. Google's was not. It's therefore no leap to suggest FM's...

The two companies are not even remotely similar in size and structure - you're comparing apples and oranges. Google can afford losses to non core business such as reader.

As a member user I'll be looking to finalise my move to Google with the free basic for a year (I started the move a few years ago).

Well they didn't answer or deny my question earlier in the thread (below) so I personally take that as them having some trouble.


The fact is unless you're a business, most people see that email...

As a member user I have a few questions about the upgrade offer:

Is the 50% off a lifetime promise or just for this year?
On the basic account does 50% off + 14.95 credit I originally paid mean I...

Friday's outage at noon (UK) was the last straw for me. I auto (web) poll my account on a regular basis so I get to see when I'm kicked out due to server down or when it fails entirely and Friday at...

It might have been a bit of a humorous analogy but I hope you can see where it was going - just because there's a charge doesn't mean it's better and I honestly wouldn't expect Fastmail to pay me for...

As posted I may have paid a long time ago but I did pay and I took a risk on the then much smaller Fastmail. I paid because it was a one off fee. I don't like the idea of being indebted to a company,...

Even 25MB accounts for guests are a bit of a joke. If Fastmail/Opera can't provide...
