Thanks for your message.
I am very new to self-hosting. I didn’t know that there was a YunoHost SMTP relay–at least, I didn’t see it mentioned in the user documentation [Configure SMTP relay | Yunohost Documentation]. Step 1 of those instructions simply says to “register with an SMTP relay provider”. Did I miss something somewhere?
Thanks for your input, Gabriel. I’ve heard of Gandi before, but have no first-hand experience with them. Are you pleased with the level of service you’ve received from them?
My domain is a free YunoHost one; I will look into Gandi’s services to see if they offer SMTP relay (for a fee) to non-Gandi domains.
I host the domain names of all my customers with Gandi. They have a great permission system where we can share account’s access. So I can have a separate account for each customer, but access to all of them from my own.
Gandi are specialized in domain names and have been doing this for a long time. Plus the free 2 email accounts per domain name is a nice bonus (I use the SMTP from one of these accounts on Yunohost).
Thank you to the three forum members who voted in the “Your preferred SMTP relay provider”. Two responders use an SMTP relay other than the ones I mentioned in the poll. Perhaps I will look at Gandi as an option–although that would involve purchasing a different domain, and so far I am happy with my YunoHost domain. Feel free to add to this topic if you use yet another SMTP relay that you feel merits consideration.
Thanks for that extra input, Benou. I will take a look at the post you suggested.
Strangely, I’m enjoying using my YunoHost email as a way to exchange messages “in house” only (with the other registered users on the system) and as a means for receiving system messages. Eventually I will enable full email support, but I’m taking a break from configuring things this week…
