I second that entirely!
And you can also call me "tin-foil boy", i have deleted my gmail account
long time ago.
I rhather pay for email service to a company who's business model is to
get paid for their services and not to poke around with one's data.
Plus, some company's use Debian on their email servers, develop and
contribute code to the community.
By the way, i currently use TB configured with imap server, when i get
the chance i will get mutt working because i heard so many good things
about it.
