That's why I agreed with tomás in the other thread. (You replied to my
post with "I've had the same physical address for 29 years this fall.")
With your own domain, you are independent of the ISP's own email
service, and if you don't like the software on your email server,
you can transfer your domain to a host that gives you better
service with satisfactory software.
I selected my host on the basis of their service (availability and
usage limits) and the server (IMAP, encrypted), so it would be
pointless to have my emails forwarded to another hosting service (eg
my ISP) as suggested with Gandi (in the same thread). That's despite
the fact that they're rather a long way away.
