GSuite Free Legacy Alternatives?
Awful but not unexpected news today that the Forever-Free tier from Google, really meant about 15 years. I understand it was a great perk and foresaw it coming as Google kept reducing services; but it's still a blow!
So I am now left looking for alternatives. I have 4 domains hosted on the GSuite free tier, each having between 4 and 12 email addresses. The biggest account has 10GB of storage for 10 years and a few addresses, I use for business send a maximum of about 100 mails a day.
I can host a mail server on my VPS and have it fail to my backup if necessary, but I am uncomfortable doing so, primarily due to the lack of control on the IP address blocks where my servers are hosted. Both of my servers are on Racknerd, who I love as a VPS service provider, but both address blocks are always flagged as blacklisted on UCEProtect3, which at very least affects any mail sent to google mail servers.
I am now looking for advice on CHEAP, reliable, secure email hosting services for 4 custom domains. Each domain needing about 10 email addresses and about 2gb storage per account. The host must provide standard POP/IMAP access.
Zoho free tier may have worked, but they no longer provide POP/IMAP and $1/user/month is too expensive.
