The problem with another provider is:

    1. My Gmail account actually occupies some 22 GB, I presume to have
       that amount of space in any other provider will need some
       payment. While I might consider this for my private account, I
       don't feel like I should pay for my work account.

    2. The other provider must allow me to send email using the from of
       my work address, as google does.

    3. That is why I thought to stay with gmail but to go back to use
       dovecot (if their figured out how to connect to an gmail, with
       the new identification process). I did this in the past and the
       downside of this approach is that I will end up with an
       additional 22GB on my laptop and more in the future.
