There are quie a few slams regarding the consumer here... why?
Not everybody that is under the consumer banner is stupid. I am a consumer... and I can safely say I have never emailed regarding "recipes" which has been referred to twice in this thread.
And whether the BB is right for me or not - is not up to you.
Yet, the overwhelming majority of users of those email services will read their email through the web interface on their computer.
Do you realize how much email traffic is 'recipes', mundane and inane trivialities? Do you realize how much Joe Public doesn't care?
And as other have mentioned, if you're concerned about security, you don't use a public server to host your emails.
