Purelymail

Published on in 🔗 Links

I’m visiting the site of Purelymail from time to time for over a year now (shortly after they launched), because I’m interested into how the service evolves. It looks like a great service that provides purely mail and is very cheap or even cheaper when you are opting for advanced pricing (“Pay as you go”). You can add as many custom domains and users as you want and just pay for the resources you actually use.

Yes there is a microformats library for Go. Will Norris also made the webmention library, which I’m using in my custom Hugo backend. I’m not saying it’s not possible to parse and display webmentions, I’m just trying to keep things simple. 😊 Everything is possible!

I don’t show webmention content at all. 😅 Instead I just show a link to the “interaction”. That removes a lot of complexity with parsing, storing etc. but probably isn’t as intuitive: it requires opening the “interactions” section below the post and visiting the link.

The security risk of embedding images from external sites

On a lot of IndieWeb sites, I noticed that profile images of webmentions get directly embedded from their original source. For example, Twitter profile images are loaded directly from Twitter servers (pbs.twimg.com) or even my profile image is directly embedded from my site.
