Why would that change anything ? As long as you can still POP, IMAP and SMTP your messages, an internet messaging system is OS agnostic.

The domain the vendor operates out of shouldn't matter much
--a bigger general issue for all of us is the amount of data mining being done on all these sites (email (yahoo, gmail, hotmail/outlook) twitter, facebook )) and so on..
