To really be in control of your email, you need to purchase a domain name. Then, you can use any email provider you like, and change providers without having to “start over”.

Unfortunately for privacy-oriented folks, this means becoming more easily identified, whereas using solutions like aliasing systems (e.g. anonaddy) you effectively appear as different identities on each site (when only taking the email in consideration, of course).

I know it’s not easy or always possible to have both though…
