Best VPS Provider for self hosted email? (IP Reputation)

stefemanstefeman Member

I intend to do fully self hosted email with mail-in-a-box or mailcow and my own domain.

Which provider would not have bad IP reputation by default?

Comments

  • Im mainly thinking Hetzner or OVH right now, but I wonder if they are all banned/blacklisted by default.

    Could also just set it up to send from SES so you don't have to worry about IP rep. Mailcow can do this super easy.

  • Your emails will go to spam folder of outlook/hotmail/office365 even if your IP reputation is good. It was almost impossible for us to whitelist our IP on micro$oft's platform back in the days my company decided to use self-hosted email. Switched to AWS SES later.

    OVH's ASN is still banned at Microsoft.

  • How much does AWS SES cost for outgoing/incoming then?

    I've seen mailcow users recommend https://www.eth-services.de/ for their clean ips.

    There is a process for this with M$ these days, and it works.

    @stefeman I have had good luck with IP's from Time4VPS (you have to use their KVM for MiaB) and also Lunanode.

    If you are in US/Canada I can provide a coupon code for Lunanode, PM me for that.

    A member/moderator of the MiaB discourse forum created a SMTP relay service which is inexpensive and works well. Although designed for MiaB it also works well with Mailcow.

    I pay like $2-3/m for SES for everything from ExtraVM.. between multiple different panels and automated email. Mailboxes are hosted on a $7 VPS with Mailcow, works great for a few months now.

    Outbound email is a pain. Just use an SMTP relay service.

    I'm using Mailcow and route my outbound emails via MXRoute. SMTP2go also works well.
