    I'm still really happy with Rackspace.

    I've just started using their DNS as well for some of my none-important sites, so I can reduce the amount I spend with DNSMadeEasy each year, as I was on their $60 business plan, when I can now go to their small business plan for $30 as I've reduced it to 9 domain names.

    Nice I am on DNSMadeEasy's Business plan too - I have referral credits which cut my cost down to around 1/2 so around US$30/yr too. But love DME so much doubt I'd ever move from them for my important domains :D

    Yeah Rackspace is always solid. So right now top 3 choices for paid @yourdomain.com email for me are Google App, Rackspace Email and Fastmail https://community.centminmod.com/threads/free-yourdomain-com-email-accounts-alternatives.280/.

    Also for folks already using Google App free @yourdomain.com email, you can also take advantage of domain alias support in Google Apps. So if you have mydomain.com setup on Google App free service and have a mydomain.net added as a domain alias to mydomain.com. This will allow [email protected] and [email protected] to go to same account. You can do this with other domains too. Which is great if already have too many email accounts to manage :) Details for Google App Domain Aliases at https://support.google.com/a/answer/53295?hl=en and their limitations at https://support.google.com/a/answer/182081

    I'm using Google apps standard since was free for about 5 domains (only 2 are very active).
    I guess the webmail must include web office to be worth.

    I'm making the switch over to zoho. They do a free mail import that will grab all of the mail off your previous server if you happen to be using another provider. They also seem to allow referral links that will grant both account extra free accounts (up to 15). I imagine you can just use another email address (and maybe IP) to sign up multiple times and grab a bunch of free users for your main one.

    I don't use my domains email for day to day emailing, so I just bought a $60/yr VPS and setup postfix & dovecot for my emails. It might go down every so often, but it's the same risk that I took when I was using email on my cPanel install :)

    (All the services didn't offer enough domains/addresses and/or cost too much for me to use)

    Use Amazon SES for smtp server transactional email as they can hide the ip address. The Zoho Mail is more for imap/pop3 and webmail :)

    Same, I'm using Amazon SES now for outgoing email. I don't care the IP is exposed, but found out SES is the only one which hides it when setting up an alternative for a customer who was getting DDOS'd and trying to hide their IP.

    Hey @Matt been a while, hope you had a good holiday :D Yeah Amazon SES and Authmailer I mentioned at Email - Transactional Email Providers: Mandrill vs SendGrid vs Amazon SES vs Mailgun vs Postmark | Centmin Mod Community are both smtp transactional email providers that hide the server originating IP addresses :)
