Gmail has become a go-to place for email, and with good reason. It’s free (as in cost, not freedom) and due to Google’s backing, it’s stable & comparatively safe. Additionally, you get the power of Google’s AI to make your email life easier. However, from a FOSS-friendly point of view, these features aren’t particularly accessible… but with common standards (such as IMAP) and a little effort, we can take full advantage of Gmail’s abilities while allowing ourselves a FOSS client.
