I am all for using a custom domain for email addresses. I mostly use @jlelse.de, but I can also be reached via email addresses with @janlukas.de, @jlelse.blog and a number of other domains. Recently I bought yet another domain, but now I’m questioning if that was really a good idea. Well, maybe I will still find a practical use for this domain.

I have this one Swedish domain that I use for my link shortener and my Gitea instance. Since I have set up catch-all email aliases for all my domains, I also get all mails sent to these domains. But only with the Swedish domain it happens to me that I regularly receive business emails or Microsoft Teams invitations, which obviously are not addressed to me, but only end up in my inbox because someone seems to have made a typo.

You probably heard about HEY, the email service that claims to fix email. But let me share this service with you: Heyyyyyyyyyyyy.com. It’s way cooler than HEY. 😉

Why I no longer host my emails myself ✉️

Published on in 💭 Thoughts

Recently, there has been a lot of talk in my blog bubble about email self-hosting again (here is one example, here is a second one). I myself switched to a self-hosted mail server over a year ago, only to switch back to a hosted version a few months later.
