Hi all,

I have had several shots at self hosting email over the years and my last attempt failed due to my home IP being in a dynamic pool. I thought I might try again, this time with a basic web hosting provider that I could set up email on. Any suggestions for a free/cheap provider with decent uptime?

    Get a static IP and host yourself? Hurricane electric offers free IPv6, so you can get a static IPv6 address for your mail host

      Tunnel broker blocks port 25 by default, but you can ask nicely and they’ll open it for you. It’s a good option if you don’t have an IPv6 address otherwise.

      Having an IPv6 only mail server is potentially risky, though… some other mail servers may only talk IPv4.
