If you need a mailbox for patch-based development work, please consider fastmail before you consider gmail.
@monsieuricon Seems approapriate to also mention Migadu https://www.migadu.com/ Possibly slightly less user frindly than fastmail but a very good mail hoster nonetheless. And I would expect no issue with patches either (haven't tested).
