As a paid user and still having some money as credits in Fastmail, I certainly hate to leave... oh well...
    I am in the same situation and state of indecision as you. I have not been affected by this outage, but from reading the posts, it would seem that I will be soon.

    ...meanwhile, I was lucky as my fm acct was affected for from 8:30am est - to 12pm. All is well now and I missed no emails. I for sure will be backing up all 90 of my fastmail IMAP folders/sub-folders to my local PC.

    Sorry to hear that. I'm looking into as well. Fastmail is great for the price, but only if it is reliable.

    Again, I think you get what you pay for. is a bit more expensive (still cheap, I think), but you get added reliability. And there's the promotion with ChatterEmail that gives you 6 months free.

    Hi Marc and all,

    As I am searching for Fastmail alternatives, I've tried putting my free AIM and AOL mailboxes online (for push-mails) over the long weekend. It seems to run fine despite the battery looks like is drained faster. (But it's not a good comparison as I only had one Fastmail box online versus now I have one AIM mailbox and one AOL mailbox online at the same time).

    Marc mentioned that the IMAP implementation of AOL and AIM is bad. Would you or other posters comment on how 'bad' it is? Is it a cause of extra battery drainage? I want to justify my spending money AGAIN on a IMAP provider - even though I understand that I'll get 6 months free for trying emailtreo/
