Own Email vs Hosted Solution


New Member
Which is normally best for a web hosting provider, hosting your own email server or having it hosted somewhere like Google?
Own... then you have full control over it and can tweak the settings to your liking.

Agree 100%! The more 3rd parties you involve in the mix, the less control you have, particularly if something goes wrong.
I get less spam via Google services. And, I also have secured links.
But, if you know what you are doing, and can adjust your server in-depth, hosting your own mail server would be a great option. I used to run a Microsoft Exchange server til the box fried. Just didn't have the time or money to reset the box/get a new server.
