I think Brong said the interface we liked was harder to maintain.....

The end of near.......

What is really quite funny, is that when I signed up for my big free account with them 15 years ago or so I thought the site was run and written out of some geeks basement. And guess what? it still looks like it!!!! Therefore I never really used it much.So, anybody who is upset about losing their free or member accounts should look at it this way. It give a reason to move on and forget about this junk once and for all and never again have to worry about a company holding your email addy at ransom. And as far as going to a "less" secure/safe email provider, I can assure you in this case size matters. It would be the little guy I would be more concerned about. Bye-bye!

As Bill says, FastMail is a pretty substantial company.

In its early days, FastMail was a lot smaller but, under Jeremy Howard, possibly even more professional then it is today.

No. I have never been in Australia and have never worked for Fastmail. I learned Fortran programming 45 years ago, before all but a couple of those people were born, I'm afraid.
