Considering changing email address?
Recently Eir, the Irish telco, have announced that their previously "free" email service with "eircom.net" domain name will now have a monthly charge. Many are surprised or annoyed at this some even outraged. Email should be "free", right? Many immediately want to change their email address to something different that is apparently "free". However providing email isn't free particularly with the need to filter email against spam or phishing attacks and with the increasing volume of traffic.

You need ask yourself, who is paying for your email and who is the customer? "Free" services read your email and note who you are communicating with. This information is valuable and is often sold for marketing and political purposes. It is as if all your paper mail was intercepted through a service that photocopied the content and sold the information to the highest bidders.

MountainViews isn't a privacy pressure group and so we don't have reams of evidence to hand about this, but here is just one link that I came across last week: https://www.vice.com/en_us/article/pkekmb/free-email-apps-spying-on-you-edison-slice-cleanfox

If you use a "free" service you and society will pay for it. Your private information will become your email suppliers product to be used at best for intrusive marketing targetting but at worst, far worse, think Stasi. If you remain with a supplier such as Eircom.net then this is subject to European GDPR and you remain the customer.

MountainViews will accept whatever email address you choose to set which you can do using the Settings option at top right.

Topo UK and Ireland v8
My Garmin handheld GPS uses the Topo UK and Ireland v6. I see that v8 is now available on the garmin website.
Does anyone know if there is much difference between the versions?
