For a Gmail alternative, try FastMail. Living in Seattle, authorities can track me via cell phone, automated license plate reader , bus pass , and even the transmitter in my drivers license. And, if a warrant is issued for my credit card, email, Internet or Car2go activity, then my life becomes an open book. The shutdown announcement for Google Reader , stories of being cut off from GMail without notice and Google technical outages also motivated me to consider other options, for privacy and redundancy. I especially admire his courage in light of the torture of Bradley Manning. I refuse to adjust to the new normal of the authoritarian surveillance state. This tutorial provides step by step instructions for installing an open source email server — a path away from GMail which reduces your reliance on Google and at least makes it a bit harder for your communications to be swept up in broader government surveillance such as PRISM.

Once you've selected the options for your new server, click Save to create it. If you have enough Units available for the server size you've chosen, the server will be created. If you do not have enough units available, an error message will appear. If you see this message, choose a smaller size for the server and then try again. If a smaller size is not available for that distribution or if you do not have any units available, cancel the creation of the server, delete one or more of your already created servers, then try again.
