Tutanota is an independent privacy-friendly ad-free email provider. You can follow them at:

➡️ @Tutanota

Their website is at tutanota.com.

Their free open source app is available on @fdroidorg, Google Play and App Store. It's also available for Linux, Mac and Windows.

Tutanota's income comes from user subscriptions, they don't sell people's data.

They support 2FA and end-to-end encryption, with e2ee by default.

@FediFollows @Tutanota @fdroidorg just FYI Tutanota is not fully open source. Their server is still proprietary (if this has changed I would love to be wrong here) and so you are still having to trust them totally that they are telling the truth since the server code can not be looked at. There are fully open options like SOGo sogo.nu that are indeed fully open and GPL

here is a comment from Tutanota from over a year ago about this

@liaizon @Tutanota

As far as I know, Sogo isn't an email provider?

Email providers are usually aimed at people who don't or can't self-host email.

@FediFollows SOGo is like Mastodon or Peetube in that it is the software and then you have to find an instance that suits you. I use gandi.net as my domain registrar and it comes with a mail server running SOGo for free. Been using it for many years now and haven't had any issues with them.

@FediFollows SOGo doesn't offer built in encryption like Tutanota does but I just looked and Posteo does so maybe a better one to advertise?

"Our servers are located in data centres in three German cities – Frankfurt, Bielefeld and Berlin. They are powered with 100% energy from Greenpeace Energy. All Posteo servers exclusively use open source software, for security reasons."



Yeah, if you can self-host email then that may well be the best option 👍

(But ad-free indie providers like Tutanota are still much much better than Gmail.)

Posteo aren't on the Fediverse, so I can't really recommend them with this account. Sorry :/

@FediFollows I am not talking about selfhosting. gandi.net is the hoster. For Gandi you have to pay for a domain but then it comes with already set up SOGo install linked to your domain. I am not recommending anyone self host email. Do you only make posts about stuff that has a fediverse presence? thats cool I didn't know that.



Yeah, this is FediFollows because I recommend accounts to follow 😁

The account to follow is always the most highlighted part of my posts.

I am sure Posteo are great as a mail provider, I just can't post about them here cos there's no Fedi account.

@FediFollows ahhhh I actually never understood the name in reference to your posts! it seems quite obvious now that you say it! (also was not intending to dampen your post! I love what you have been doing. I was just personally annoyed with Tutanota, so no negativity meant directed in your direction!)
