Limited Email storage?

What if there were no limits?

In the early days of email, 2 and 3 MB mailbox limits were the norm. Until Gmail came in with the first 1GB free email service.

We know how that story played out. Hotmail and Yahoo, titans of the earlier era, were reduced to shadows of their former selves.

Over the last decade, business email has grown and people boast about receiving hundreds of emails a day. Inbox bloat is the new status symbol.

If you are a small business owner, sending email from your own domain, you are probably paying per user. As your business grows, you pay more per email address. All those $5 per month mailboxes per employee add up to tidy profits for providers. While a 30GB limit is generous, attachments of 25 MB are now commonplace. And those limits are being reached in months, if not years.

If you aren’t sending out thousands of newsletters or emails every month, there is a sensible option – a small company called Migadu from Switzerland. But why should you care where your email provider is from as long as things work, right?

The problem with having to delete email is that you either have to do it in bulk or not at all. Halfway measures don’t work

Sure, this email model may not be the best one for you if you prefer a sophisticated email interface and tons of obscure features. But that problem can be solved by using a good-looking app to display your email. Which is still a lot cheaper than having to pay per user.

Your choice. Limited or unlimited.
