LF a CDN email provider - suggestions?

I'm looking for a Canadian email provider - who would you suggest?
  • Canadian as in provided and stored in Canada to limit the prying eyes of our Amerifriends
  • Non ISP so I can change ISP's without having to change everything if I change ISP's
  • Something I can use to set up all my accounts with
  • cost effective

Get closer and you might have one foot in the grave. (Pass it on)

On first glance that might do it. I'll have to read more about their policies.
How tight are they about being in the Ottawa area?

I'm not sure what you mean by that Gee.
Isn't everybody that provides an email server a host? I don't need something that gives me a myname@mydomain.com kinda thing.

I essentially want an email account that is not linked to an ISP, an employer or an educational institution. They all change as you move around and go through life. Something I can use to administer google, microsoft and any other accounts from that requires an existing email address in the first place.

How do you get an email address without an email address in the first place?

I misunderstood. I thought you were looking to host your own domain with a Canadian provider.

You can also use Toronto Free Net

Basically, the op wants a free email service provider that's in canada.

Haven't seen many of those, good luck to your search.

Free is not a requirement. Being a RFD member, I am looking for good value.

Thanks for the heads up to DirectHosting; I might be able to do something with that and set up a website for my business.

The issue here is since you don't need a custom domain email, that defaults back to a "free" provider.

Protonmail is not a Canadian provider but is the most secure and locked down email provider out there so far. Their own servers are in a mountain if that is a feature you are looking for additionally.

I like http://www.namespro.ca/

Their a CDN company, but I have no idea if their servers are located in Canada or not.

But their email hosting is very reliable and they are very responsive if you have a problem.

You do need to have a domain name to use them though.

Frontend is definitely Canadian servers, but where or what service they are using to store your email is the other question.
