Thinking again about how to handle email hosting best..

When we move to Japan, I’ll be sorting out a static IP address with the ISP and think that I’ll buy a cheap pine64 SBC for hosting email again..

I think (and I may be wrong) that the issues that I’ve had with microsoft and gmail delivery are down to digitalocean and dodgy reputation on certain IP ranges.. so in the meantime, if tutanota doesn’t live up to expectations then maybe the plan should be to look for an alternate VPS provider with a better reputation.. though how I ascertain that, I’m not sure.

I’m not sure that I fancy bouncing from email host to email host trying to find one I can trust or that offers the features I like..

Will stick with tutanota for a wee while given that I’ve paid for a year and given we hope to move to Japan in a bit over a year then hopefully that’ll be fine to tide us over.. but much preferred the experience (delivery issues aside) of self-hosting.
