What's the advantage of using a paid email service instead of Gmail?

Episode 1557 (47:57)

Manny from Vero Beach, FL

Manny wants to know if there's an advantage to having a paid email service vs. a free service like Gmail. Leo says that if he's not paying for it, they're making money off him somehow. That's what pays the bills. He can pay for Google's business email service, called GSuite. That would give him support. Free email is paid for by ads put on the page, and it mines data from email electronically, to focus those ads to what he spends the most time on. Leo has since moved away from GMail for a paid service called FastMail, so it's not trying to sell him things based on his activity.
