Xmail in the works?

Elon Musk announced that his social media platform, X, is developing an alternative email service called Xmail to compete Gmail.

There is an open source email server called XMail.
Of course Elon Musk can offer addresses @x.com.

Hope it happens.
Can't wait to get away from anything Google after their recent Gemini nonsense and their blatant loathing of a certain demographic.

I'll try anything once!

If it proves to be a disaster....no harm done.

Anything that allows people to move AWAY from gmail HAS TO BE A GOOD THING...IMHO.

Thanks for the heads up!

No idea why so many people are negative about google. Not like Elon Musk is a saint.

I 'submitted an interest' in myfirstname@xmail.com and the next page said I would be notified when it was available. I found this weird because I had not given yet a working email address to send a notification to.. I just chalked it up to even this part of the service not working right in my browser, which is not 'chromy' enough for some services/sites.

xmail.com is not owned by x.com
xmail.com just uses google workspace for email.

The current owner of domain xmail.com could get rich soon.
I don't think he/she could resist the big money coming in from X
Unless X uses the same approach as Proton to go for Xmail.me instead because proton.com will never be available to them!

It would be a huge pain for users if they don't use xmail.com. I have found numerous times people just type in a .com ending no matter what the actual TLD. Half the time they just type in @gmail.com no matter what domain and TLD you are using. I've worked with mailing lists a lot, and it is frustrating how often email addresses are entered incorrectly, even by the owners of the addresses!
