    Best/Cheapest email host ?

    Hi,
    So I am looking for a email service like Namecheaps but for a few personal sites. about 3 domains and 3+ accounts on each domain. Does anyone know of any good reasonable priced email services?

      MXRoute? Not a customer myself yet, but it's from @jar so I'm assuming quality.

    • Best and cheapest would be to grab a domain with a grandfathered google apps account.

      was considering that but I have multiple domains, And I know providers like hostgator etc get funny when you signup and just use their promos + I have multiple domains i want to use

      You can add up to 600 domains to one account.

    • Really? Thought google had it for 1 per account, But if so that a pretty good option.

      Why? I'm not arguing with you, I'm genuinely interested :-)

      Is it to do with privacy issues?

    • jarjar Provider

      @julfo said:

      :)

      It's actually due to their increasingly tough stance on spam. If you forward spam to them it is only a matter of time before the right spammer hits you hard enough, and they block your server's IP address for a few hours. As little as 2-3 forwarders on a server could be enough to ruin everyone's chance at successful, immediate delivery to the most popular e-mail services. No matter how well you block spam, it's a game of cat and mouse, eventually one gets ahead of the other even if only for a while.

      Basically I decided that quality had to win over the convenience of an old tradition that cannot keep up with the times.

      For another point of view on it:

    • I've been happily using http://www.bhosted.nl/webhosting/email-only for 2 years now, 6 euros/y is really cheap but I feel like I'm going to need more than 50mb storage at this point. I'll watch this topic!!

    • Thanks. I never realised forwarding was so dangerous for the intermediary server! But then, I don't know much about email and it seems to be a lot more complicated than you'd expect.

    • Zoho offers good mail service for free upto 5 users with 5 GB space and many other features, we are using it for few of our domains, also its one service which offers mail support for even free mail id

      Actually doesn't have an impact on this anymore. If you forward spam to gmail in any reasonable quantity they block your IP for a time regardless, which is perfectly understandable on their part. They now base their actions more on content and less on headers, which is rapidly becoming the only effective way to filter spam.

    • to start with Zoho is good to use and easy to manage..

    • Google Apps

    • +1 for MXroute, if not try Google Apps.

    • Mxroute pricing is bit not clear, they had mentioned some mail space is it combined for all mail ids or per mail id?

      It's actually really clear, you get the amount of storage listed. If it were per mail account it would say so :)

    • @Jar: where is the data hosted?

    • Zoho may meet your needs easily.
      You can also consider using iRedmail hosting on a VPS. You will have flexibility for domains and accounts.

    • we offer zimbra based email service for individuals and business, check it up
      at www.centerrack.com

    • Use Yandex, because better KGB backbone than NSA :D

      I think the offer from Inbox.LV might be interesting as well. Plus, not on US soil.

      Although I don't endorse the NSA spying on people, I don't think its necessary for me to go offshore. Although I do believe strongly that if what has been said about the NSA is completely true then it's wrong.

    • In my opinion sometimes we daily waste money for stupid stuff and , at the same time, we try to save 10$ per year for critical stuff that serve communication like the email hosting service. After a really bad experience with a couple of my customer lets me give a couple of tips : first, split the web hosting service from the email hosting system and next let's spend a dozen of dollars to sleep quiet.
      There are several solutions almost free for VPS for instance there are https://www.rootnerds.com/ or http://www.comfortvps.com while for email hosting service there are http://servermx.com/ (they start from 0.5 $ month and are caldav certified ) or ,https://runbox.com/ ..anyway you can find other provider not free, but almost free.

      I think it's NYC, but like most sites hosted in the US it takes advantage of the premium NSA CDN so you get good latency all over US

      (Joking of course, but I think it is NYC)

      I don't trust US based/hosted providers but MXRoute or BuyVMs BuyShared are solid choices.

      As @4n0nx said - why don't you host it yourself? I've got the 7$/y special from vpsdime as my mail server, its uptime is just great and specs are enough.

      Thanks for my 70th thanking, @4n0nx :)

    • I'm skeptical about the reliability of the low cost providers, I recall seeing a post a few months back about MXRoute not having a backup mx server and the same goes with BuyShared (I think Francisco even mentioned that it's not even backed up so in case of hardware failure we need to restore from our backups).

      I ran for a few years my own mail server but I won't have the time to manage it (it does take a lot of time if you care about security). Since Google was not an option (the main reason why I ran my own server is to run as far as possible from them), Zoho is reasonably a low cost home-made solution (spamassassin and z-push among the features, come on - and their support forums are a joke) I gave it a try (they have a 30 day trial) to Office 365. I'm reasonably anti-microsoft as a general rule but Office 365 is amazingly good. They state clearly they will not use your data for advertising and you can add up to 900 domains or so.
      For $5/month/user is by far the cheapest option (cheaper than the free google options, yes), they offer a 99.9something SLA and their support is enterprise grade (well, sort of but depends on your issue).

      I know this is lowendtalk and people are looking mostly for cheap options but personally I wouldn't trust my email with a low-cost provider.
      Yes, Microsoft will hadover my data to any Govt that asks for it but if you're targeted by a govt, any provider will bend, no matter what they say.
      I'm more worried about advertisers than govts.

      tcpdump said: MXRoute not having a backup mx server

      This is up and running now :)

      Truth is, I've had downtime with Gmail. No matter how much infrastructure you have, things can go wrong. That's why I made MXroute, because the principles on LowEndBox have taught us over the years that the honest reality is that the more massive the infrastructure, the more variables. The more massive the company, the less personal support will often be. With LEB we learned that less can be just as powerful, we can save a ton of money, and at the end of the year the graphs really don't look different enough to justify spending the money we saved.

      LEB taught us a lot about the reality of the hosting industry, the actual probabilities of problems and the potential to address common ones without high cost. MXroute was born from what we've learned here.

      To date, @Jar's MXRoute has been going strong for me. I've been a little late on the migrating, but that's mostly because of my own laziness. It's definitely the best "cheap" service out there.

      Email or Webserver or any data always have backup first rule of electronic data (my rule)

      When u talk about reliability of low cost providers that makes u Mo**on in LET
      And type of IT infra will have downtime If you need a Enterprise grade Email solution
      then i think you should rise your budget high and get service from IT giants like Gmail,yahoo,Outlook

      Next time read the thread topic then comment

      Man Your are in wrong place comparing Office 365 with Google and zoho &Mxroute

      I have a Mxroute account you will amazed by its spam control it works for me

      Even in my corporate gmail account i have spam that passes googles spam filter and lands on my inbox

      Spam control is very sensitive and hard to achieve

      Make your choice on your own But i can help you to make them right.
