    So which email service to use, now?
    Gmail is apparently OK, but useless on features...

    Yahoo has 2 step verification for their email system making it as safe as Gmail but I think some insider job did them bad. With yahoo mail if you log into the mail 500km from where you last logged in it will as for the 2 step verification.
