    Can you use unlimited email users and domains on the $6/month Google/GSuite Workspace email plan?

    Google Workspace is US$6/user/month per domain. But you can use user and domain alias so users and domains point to the primary domain/user that could as one user/month.

    That's expensive. I haven't had much issues with free Zoho Mail's plan arriving to inboxes.

    I read that Zoho had a bad reputation, so I was using Namecheap's $8/yr. It's integrated with privateemail.com -- my opinion of it is "so-so; gmail is better".

    I recently found this free option that you can pair with gmail, etc., which is fantastic:
    I also found
    But "As of March 31, 2023 we enforced a new blanket spam rule to protect our users and service." - no .info allowed.

    Very interesting! Would be a great option for small hobby sites.

    But, the emails from your domain are still being sent from one of those other services. And, if those services are offering free SMTP servers, even with fairly low limits, I would be worried about deliverability issues.

    Although I don't recommend multiple services/connections for only 1 or a few "small hobby sites."
    As often recommended, MXRoute is highly recommended. Every so, offers often big discount as well. Especially around: Black Friday. So keep that in mind, if you start low end site's.

    No problems with Zoho for me for some sites https://community.centminmod.com/th...in-com-email-provider-setup-information.3641/
    Yeah I just use Amazon SES for all SMTP emails for forums and server emails outbound. Let 3rd party experts handle mail deliverability issues :)
    Yup MXRoute has been good for me too from a few years ago got Black Friday deals https://community.centminmod.com/threads/using-mxroute-com-for-yourdomain-emails.22409/. FYI, they have a deal with larger storage right now too see https://lowendtalk.com/discussion/187043/mxroute-summer-2023-sizzling-deal-only-40-year. But for @domain emails only not for transactional emails like forum mailings etc due to low rate limits
