Proton Mail

So I've decided that 2020 is the year I start my magical migration away from all things google.

For the last year or so I've been slowly using DDG as my main search engine. It rarely disappoints but when it does, it's very easy to change your query to search a separate search engine (like google or bing).

This year I've finally made the transition of my personal email away from google apps to ProtonMail. I bought my proton mail subscription months and months ago but never made the change. When I got the alert that my subscription needed renewing I thought to myself, if I'm gonna pay for this I'm gonna use it. So I followed the very very well written docs:

  1. Setup mail forwarding
  2. Migrate existing mail
  3. Configure personal domain
  4. Setup DNS entries
  5. Profit

Now I'm using Proton mail as my main personal email and with the beta they are giving us access to Proton Calendar now too. Which, is still very basic, but promises to be pretty useful in the near future.
