Managing email and email images

I was just about to move my server over to DO and then I realised that whilst I can manage backups via cron and the lamp stack I have no idea how to run and really do not want to run a mail server

I was wondering what my options are? and why wouldnt DO run an image that created a mail sever for a domain name. This seems to be an essential part of running a web application and would almost certainly be one of these issues that everyone is going have to face

Hey friend,

Running a mail server is a lot of work, and providing a one-click mail server would actually be misleading to customers who would think that it could function without the same difficulties of running your own (as it would be running your own, minus the software installation). We actually have an article about it here:

There are many email providers out there that can make things easier for you by managing your email. Off the top of my head, some popular ones are GSuite, ZoHo, Yandex, and Fastmail. There are, of course, many more to be found.
