as I have checked it's not linked to anything else. Outlook webmail seems very
good and easy to organise.
I also spent some time changing a bunch of passwords after a IT-nerdy friend
advised it was a good idea due to the heartbleed bug (he also said it may not
do any good but anything helps).

As for your personal archive, if it is on webmail, then it's just as easy to
