Best Alternative from Poste.io ?
I m using Poste.io free version, and it is good and light.
Unfortunately the free is not have (only the Pro);
- DNS domain diagnostics
- Mailserver diagnostics
- DMARC reports viewer
- Delivery logs viewer
- User logs viewer
I think all these diagnostics tools are essential for every good mail server setup, a must have even for free versions.
here you can see what I mean:
go Server Status, etc
is any light, free alternative with that features?
When I was self hosting email I used to use Mailcow and I loved it. Cant't remember details on the features though. Have you checked it out?
Mailcow and iredmail i can't think of anything else.
Mailcow I see that is good but heavy and have. (i don't say that is bad, don't take me wrong, just looking also something light)
DNS domain diagnostics
I don't know if only give you only the DNS keys or verify they are correct.
Poste.io do those diagnostics verifications also
I don't have work with iredmail yet (so at the moment i don't have anything to share)
It's great that you think this, but clearly, poste.io think otherwise. How should we decide who's right?
Congrats on your first post
thanks, i appreciate your comment
the reason is simple (we can not decide, but positive feedback is a good thing)
when I start reading here before posting anything I notice even experienced mail server admins (in this case) have many issues with their setups in one or the other way.
how many issues must have a not so much experienced mail server admins?
yes in manual we can run all these diagnostics on by one or with a script.
here we talk auto one button does all of them at once like poste.io pro
these features may be also in some other mail server setups ( i don't know that so please share)
I post because I think if all versions of mail servers (free and paid) have a diagnostics toolset advance as as can be .. that can help everybody more than a lot in my opinion.
the other reason is all mail server devs see this post and who knows maybe consider adding these diagnostics toolsets in their builds. I speak here for a correct setup of a mail server (free or paid) without miss configs and a diagnostics toolset that give you the knowledge that you in the correct path.
I've never used poste.io before, but I took a look and the PRO version does look nice. At the same time, there's a reason why the PRO version costs quite a bit
poste.io themselves say that their system is based on open-source components, but clearly, they've added some value to the overall system, and if you decide that you want/appreciate/need this added value, then it may be worth paying for it (not to mention that simply making all of the open-source components work well together takes a lot of expertise)
My reply to you above was simply based on what seemed to be your assumption/expectation, namely, that a free version should include everything that you want it to have (but I may have misunderstood you)
Have you found any other alternative for poste.io, I am also looking lightweight mail server
did you checked mailu? don't know about the features that you mentioned. but you can check it and they have a demo also. Another one is postal server. You can check both.
mailinabox.email is open source, full featured and super light weight.
I follow the 3d
Thanks, switched to postal as it is full featured. Yes it is bit heavy on memory usage by 400mb
Its backed by a commercial company which provides a WordPress managed hosting. So definitely may not abandon as they use it for their internal purpose.
What is the company? Thanks
