I've been considering mailbox.org for my email and cloud office requirements, but so few reviews exist online so I hope some of you have experience you can share.

I currently use Gmail and Google Docs, Sheets, Drive, and Slides. Ideally I need to replace all of these. Here are my requirements:

- A service I pay for with money instead of personal data
- Personal email service
- A privacy conscious privacy policy
- An online office suite for documents, spreadsheets, file storage

Optional features:
- able to send encrypted email (almost no one I know can use encryption)
- open source software stack
- Android apps
- Cloud presentation software (Slides replacement)

I don't have the time or resources to set up my own email server or cloud.

I'd like to hear from anyone with mailbox.org experience, or other services that meet the above requirements.

    @d3vnu11 Perhaps, but if Google can do this, surely others can too.

    @d3vnu11 It's an option I didn't know of. Thanks.

    Are you using G Suite or a private Google account now?

    @JonnyDoe I'm using Google Docs, Sheets, Slides, Drive, Keep through my personal Gmail account. I'm not paying for any of this with money so I'm guessing it's not G Suite.

    Gmail --> Protonmail & tutanota.com (both with encryption)
    Google Document Stuffs --> Microsoft Office Online (need ms account), zoho docs, onlyoffice

    @CozyPlanes Yeah this. Although Tutanota doesn't have cloud storage built in, the service works awesome! And you do not pay with your data

    @smallTalker you're very unlikely to get a built in online office suite. Furthermore, you're far better off using a mailbox with good, up to date security and using an installed copy of an office suite with a local file.

    As for an email service, you're asking for a company that does what they advertise. That's incredibly unlikely nowadays, and you're best off getting a domain of your own with an email address attached to it. This takes all of ten minutes to set up, and it looks far more professional too.

    Basically, what you're asking for doesn't exist. That business model isn't profitable anymore. In our current day and age, the only two avenues are as follows:

    -Accept that your data is no longer in your control;
    -Take control of the entire email service.

    Fasthosts and 1&1 both support encryption, for something like two quid a month. Plus you can attach a website later on down the road.

    If you are really that worried about your email, host your own server...
