Back to iCloud for email

After a few months of messing around with various mail solutions (iRedMail, hosting my own osx server, open bad mail server, citadel, Zohomail, etc) I have decided its just too much work and am going back to OS X. I have decided that instead of finding a better way to manage all the e-mail I receive that I am going to start aggressively reducing the number of emails I get. No more mailing lists, unsubscribing from all newsletters, etc. E-mail is just not an adequate way of communication any longer because it’s overwhelming. For all communications that occur regularly via email I am going to request we migrate the conversation to Skype chat or via one of the other messaging services (if necessary, encrypted with OTR).

Over the month of June, I received an average of 182 emails a day, I hope to get this to 20 or less over the coming months.
