    @Linux So far it seems server is working but I cannot get that Namecheap configuration to be correct, I cannot receive emails. What should I add? I have set custom MX record, I'm using Mailu

    Edit:

    I followed their docs: https://mailu.io/dns.html

    Setting up SMTP is a pain in the ass, and most tutorial should just disclaimer that you should only do it if you really have to.
    I have only did it once, and personally i didn't find it worth the effort. You are better off using a service like AWS

    @gitpush absolutely what @jesterishere said. I ended up using sendgrid in combination with zoho and am really happy with that.

    I did that once. It sucked. Spam filtering is a whole other beast, even when set up correctly I would get a few a day.

    Pro tip: just pay for hosted email unless you hate yourself.

    Are you on telegram? Maybe we can talk about it there, because if I would check stuff I would need your domain and shuch, and that is not something you want to publish here? :)

    Better to use something else than the big shit like amazon, people and companies needs to stop embrace aws, azure and google cloud to keep shit decentralized.

    @Linux true, can't argue there. Will keep that in mind from now on

    @Linux I'm using Mailu, I have setup my server on scaleway, and my domain is on namecheap

    I did add the following:

    MX

    SPF

    DKIM

    DMARC

    However; I'm still receiving connection refused on port 25 which I explicitly unblocked (scaleway has it blocked by default)

    Not sure what is the cause here

    @Linux Although how do I make sure my relay is not public, I mean it requires authentication so that I avoid being used to send spam mail

    @gitpush

    You have to open up the ports :P

    @Linux haha thanks man I'll check. but it requires port 25 to be open so I can send and receive, isn't there an authentication config? so that only authorized users send?

    @Linux so it says not an open relay, is that all? I'm a noob and I can be easily hacked. I'm using Mailu, I suppose they took care of few things but not sure of the rest
Your Job Suck?
