I already use Gmail and it's not fully reliable. Every time I come off
wifi and onto the cellular network Google blocks my mail access until I
respond to an email asking me if it was me that connected to my email.
It happens Every. Single. Day. It's really frustrating which is why I
wanted something else.
It's also very slow. Sometimes I don't get updated for half an hour or
more because they don't support IMAP push where the other server I'm
using will send me the notification in a matter of seconds.
