ippimail to close – what now for friendly webmail?

I was disappointed to read that ippimail announced “the closure of the ippimail project [...] barring a miracle we will take the site down at noon on the 1st May 2009, UK time.”

I first covered the ippimail social enterprise back in 2006 as a way to do better than googlemail. There was a longer review on Cutting Free.

So what now for free-to-use UK-based free-software-using webmails? Where do you think ippimail users should look now? Are there others giving to charity? Is a better world possible by emailing?
