My biggest concern is: Will hey.com "survive" beyond or at least co-exist with other big players (Gmail, Outlook, Yahoo)? Otherwise paying $99 for a year to keep the address would be wasteful.

They won't survive too long time. I would like to make a bet.

Someone has to be in love with hey.com just name only, till they are not giving on domains.

who wants to change their email id?

We want to use technology or services, not our email or domain.

I used Zoho, Office 365, G Suite and still, domain and email ID is the same for all.

Domain support is coming later this year. It’s feature request no. 1.

In every email system I've used, new mails, whichever folder they are placed in (by default or because of filtering rules) are shown in the list-of-mails in a different colour or in bold, and the folders also indicate that they have new contents. So it's dead easy to find new mails.

It's important though to filter on the right things; typically I use the value in the Return-Path header including its final ">" to determine where something came from, or (as I have many aliases) the "X-Resolved-To" or "X-Delivered-To" header (which tells you who the mail provider thought it was for) and completely ignore fields like From: To: or Cc. For mail lists I usually filter on "List-Id" (so if eg the address I use for a list is compromised and I change it, I needn't change the filter rule).

If your filtering works for you, great! What I have found is it is just easier to triage emails myself by having them all arrive in the same place, the inbox, in chronological order instead of having to go through 30 different folders to see if there is any new mail coming in. Sure, some clue will tell you there are new emails in a folder, but then it requires at least one click to get there and one click to get back to the inbox. It is just more work for me. I frequently find that people and businesses I actually want to hear from have changed email addresses and/or email systems, so I don't think the return path would be very useful. Most clever spam and phishing is sent to one of my many correct email addresses. Actually, using Gmail it is very uncommon to see anything in my inbox that isn't a legitimate email. Yes, I delete a lot of marketing emails and notices, but those are things I do want to at least glance at and some are quite timely--someone has logged into my Gmail at such and such a time. I like to see those coming in.

I'll take that bet. Basecamp has been around for 20+ years, is a solid profitable company with a good track record (whether or not one likes the Basecamp app itself), and the founders have committed to Hey.com long-term. I see no reason to believe they won't be around for a long time. Some interview or blog post of theirs recently had mentioned they already reached their sales conversion target for Hey.com so right now they are already in good financial shape apparently, just on the Hey.com side by itself. While they are never going to have even a tiny fraction of the marketshare of the big services, they don't need to. I think they're in it for the long haul. I know I'll be signing up when I get the Hey for Work invitation. But it's obviously not for everyone, and for those who don't like their approach, there are plenty of great options out there of course.
