Sorry we shut you out, says Tutanota: Encrypted email service weathers latest of ongoing DDoS storms

Re: Best advert ever

yes, that's true, I forgot: tuta lacks notification. And free accounts not used for six months are deleted. So, advantage for proton. Still tuta has its place for "special" purposes. ;-)

yes, lavabit, mailbox.org and posteo all cost. Huge amounts such as 15$/year (lavabit) or 12€/year (the other two). For more money you get more features.

I for one have paid accounts with ALL providers mentioned (incl. tuta an proton). And I can say: They are worth every single cent!

Re: Best advert ever

tutanota is webmail only, no access w/ normal e-mail client. Same holds true for protonmail.ch, which I recommend as well.

Further recommendations w/ access by e-mail client: lavabit.com, mailbox.org, posteo.de (other languages available).

"I would have said sorry, I don't do Windows..." - I always say: I do W7, I do W8.1, I do migration from W to Linux. But I don't do W-X, by no means!

Windows 7 goes dual screen to shriek at passersby: Please, just upgrade me or let me die

get rid of S... bloat

I for one don't use Samsung because I don't want to support children's work and bloody raw materials. But if someone owns already a S... device and wants to dispose off the bloatware and espionage, the only way is to install a custom ROM. That is no rocket science; I have done it on several devices from various manufacturers. Not yet on a S... but it seems to be easier than with some others. The key is the SW Odin delivered by S.

get rid of S... bloat

I for one don't use Samsung because I don't want to support children's work or bloody raw material. Anyway, if someone has a Samsung device already and wants to get rid of bloatware and espionage, the only way out is a custom-ROM. I have done that on various Android devices, not yet on Samsung. But as far as the news go it seems to be a quite simple process, simpler than on other devices. The key is the SW Odin delivered by Samsung. Here an link to start from:
