Discussion on: What I Use Now Instead Of Google

Great post! I was thinking about getting off of gsuite and trying Protonmail/Netcloud. My one issue is my existing emails. I have a couple gigs of emails I'd like to keep around. Are there any decent solutions for this out there?

Personal approach for that: I have several mail accounts (company, GMail, personal domain) and use a desktop mail client (Thunderbird in my case) to copy mails between all these. For my whole "old" messages I also keep a local copy because then and now I need them to be available offline and this fits well into the workflow. Not sure if this works for you though.

I'm not sure tbh.. I still have my gmail account as an archive, too. Not sure what I'll do with it, but I've been exploring options for archiving it. Would love to hear about any decent solutions you find!
