Guess I'm gonna have to drop Protonmail. It won't send emails to the #OpenBSD lists anymore.

What are people using for free, secure email these days?

@bcallah you might want to consider paying for a mail service - check out fastmail and migadu. also an option to run your own if you're crazy like me lol

@ben @bcallah sorry to threadjack - but can you tell me more about hosting your own email? All the guides I find are old, weird, or for complex setups and all I want is one user on one domain.


@M0YNG no worries, i run debian with postfix, dovecot, opendkim, and rspamd. is there anything in particular you were looking for?

@ben knowing what stack you use is a great start.

Did you follow a guide or do you have one I could look at?

I'd like to host my own email but I can't find a simple "good enough" setup.

@M0YNG i followed a couple guides and read plenty of documentation. i've actually been meaning to write up a blogpost guide for mailservers for years but i just haven't gotten around to it.

some key notes:
- make sure the hostname that postfix is using matches the rdns for your ip
- test your stuff with
- double check your dns records
- be sure to set up dovecot-sieve and possibly managesieve for mail filtering (i use this heavily)

@ben awesome, thanks. I may have a play with a domain that I don't already use for something - for when it goes wrong!

Let me know if you do get around to that blog!

@M0YNG i'll try to remember :) i have a draft i started somewhere, gotta go find that
