As an old-school Unix admin, I've run my own mail server for 25+ years. Deliverability is becoming more of a problem for the tiny, independent MTA, and spam management is a continual burden, and I'm considering moving to a commercial mail service.

My initial choice is FastMail. I need multiple domains, several aliases, strong filtering capability, and would love to see delivery logs (which FastMail doesn't do).


@CarlCravens I use and have been quite happy with them. I reviewed them at and they do everything you're after except showing you logs. Plus they have some very strong crypto features.


@jgoerzen Since I avoid web clients and use gpg in my local client, I'm not worried about crypto on the provider. I switched to Fastmail this morning.
It's a little weird not running my own mail server for the first time in forever.
