[ale] Good commercial VPN's



Thanks! I'm looking at all three options you mentioned. I like ProtonVPN
because of Protonmail (I want to move away from gmail as you mentioned).
The full package from ProtonVPN that includes ProtonMail is pretty
expensive ($33/month?) so I'm looking at other packages.

PIA and NordVPN look good as well. I wish they had built-in secure mail
like ProtonMail.

Thanks!

Jeff
