That's just wrong. My email relies on solely on my own server and not on somebody else's database. My VoIP as well. If you would call me using the standard protocol, SIP, no other server than my own would be involved (don't actually do this, it's probably night over here and I'll be cranky).
There is absolutely zero reason to use this proprietary crap, and to rely on a third party which whom you probably don't even have a valid service contract.
