Alternatives to gMail (conversation view, where art thou? privacy?)

http://crunchbanglinux.org – Hi everybody,this is probably a question that pops up every once in a while, but I never really found an answer, so I'll try again...I use gmail and I find uncomparably better than any other email service (webmail or client) I tried. Unfortunately, I don't really like the idea that google knows so much about me. I am probably not that interesting for them either, but still, I don't like their private information collection policy etc. etc.Does anybody know of a more privacy-conscious alternative, either webmail or software, which compares to the incredibly efficient organization (HowTos)
