Self email hosting

 · Jean Schurger

Hosting its own email server takes a lot of time to setup, maintain and troubleshoot. I own my domain name and use it for emails since more that 20 years and used different ways to to it. There is a lot of good providers like Gmail, Protonmail but they can be expensive or you may not want to give them your data.

I've discovered Mail-in-a-box

  • Easy to setup
  • Use common well known open source software
  • Provide webmail (with GPG support), shared addressbook (and calendar)
  • Well documented

Only drawback beeing is only support Ubuntu, but adds support for Debian.

The best of two worlds !
