I have a question that I may have asked years ago but I can't remember.

I host a lot of sites through squarespace and buy domains through you... but I have to get a minimal hosting plan just to get access to the DNS to setup the settings correctly. I don't have to do this with GoDaddy. You get the DNS settings with the domain reg.

Am I just doing something wrong or dumb? I don't want to use GoDaddy!

Thereís no (technical) reason you have to use your domain registrarís DNS. You should be able to update NS records to point to Cloudflare or Digital Ocean or some other free DNS provider if it turns out lithium requires a hosting plan.

If you just need DNS hosting, you can find a free DNS host or use AWS Route66 or even CloudFlare.
We don't offer DNS hosting without a web hosting plan though.

"With the breakdown of the Medieval system, the gods of Chaos, Lunacy, and Bad Taste gained ascendancy." Ignatius was writing in one of his Big Chief tablets.


Hoping this is the thread that makes the most sense for this issue.

I am having some significant email forwarding issues with my work Rackspace email account. I have been forwarding from Rackspace to Gmail but discovered recently I am only getting roughly 75% of my emails through to Gmail. Rackspace says it is Gmail's fault but I cannot find any solution through their support either. Ultimately I am thinking I should switch away from forwarding through the Rackspace webmail to my Gmail account and switch to POP3 retrieval. Does this make sense? I will lose out on the immediacy of the forwarded emails and have to wait for them to be retrieved but at least I will get them all.

Also, I have about 36k emails in my work Rackspace account that have been previously forwarded and I can see in Gmail. If I turn on POP3 for that same account will it duplicate those 36k emails in Gmail or is it smart enough to know it was already forwarded and present in the current Gmail inbox? If that is not a good solution - any other ideas? Ultimately I just want to have both work and personal emails in my Gmail account. Thank you for any guidance here.

you mention work account, is there some kind of DLP scanning messages and preventing you from forwarding anything containing certain keywords or phone numbers or PII

Not that I am aware of. My company is simply saying that Rackspace email forwarding is getting rejected by Gmail due to Gmail's security settings which detect some forwards as spoofing. I am not confident they know much about the technical details... Their solutions is just not to forward to Google/Gmail or other webmail service. I do notice that email applications coming from Indeed.com are rarely forwarded as of a couple months ago - but with that said I have had an email from a staff member's Gmail to my work email directly not get forwarded so it is hard to determine what could be the trigger. I have whitelisted all indeed and even gmail domains in Rackspace but that only seems to prevent them from being sent to spam.

you're probably trying to send from rackspace with a fake from: of gmail.com [due to the forwarding], and gmail.com knows you are absolutely not gmail.com for certain

That makes sense, ok. So I could use POP3 retrieval in Gmail to pull the email in that way (SMTP sending through Gmail has always worked fine as far as I know). Is it known if that will lead me to have 36k in duplicate emails though due to most of them already being forwarded to this Gmail account over the last 10 years? If not and it only pulls in emails that were not previously forwarded that would be a fine solution and would fix this issue going forward right?

Domain name purchase comes first. In order to get an SSL cert you'll have to prove ownership of the domain, which can be done a few different ways such as putting in a certain DNS entry or hosting a specific txt file they give you. I use AWS for my domains & DNS, and Lets Encrypt for SSL certificates. You can mix and match who you do business with for these things, meaning you could buy the domain from one company, use a different company as the DNS provider, and use yet a third company for SSL certificate.

The solution you're looking for is to merge 2 imap accounts but i'm not helping something i consider probably really bad, gmail reads all your emails and you're sending your work email there.

They know, our helpdesk was helping me try to troubleshoot this before we got to this point and they didn't know what to try next. At this point I am just wondering if turning on POP3 retrieval is going to lead to me having thousands of duplicate emails in my Gmail account.

Does anyone have a recommendation for an email provider like Fastmail but cheaper or with more flexible packages?

I have about 50 mailboxes for hosting clients on Fastmail currently. The basic package is cheap but only 2gb, and if I have to bump a user up to the next level the price doubles and suddenly I am making a loss unless I renegotiate with the client.

I have always kind of swallowed the cost because outsourcing everything email-related saves a lot of pain, but my annual Fastmail bill is now my biggest business expense by a fair bit...

Whatís the use case?

Would Gmail be better for your domains/clients?

Edit: also maybe fast mail would negotiate a discount or a service dump with you to not lose you as a client.

100% Gmail with a business account is the best thing pretty much ever. Except for support. But then...it's Gmail. You don't ever need support. It works.

Thanks guys, Gmail is great and I actually have an old G Suite Legacy account that I use for a few users. But it looks like Google Workspace is the same price for every user?

My issue is that I have some clients who ask for mailboxes and they sit around for years using about 50mb of space, and other users who would happily fill a 100gb quota. Ideally I want to be able to put them on different packages.

My company makes small websites for various clients. (Some static, some LAMP, some .NET Core)

Our current 'DevOps' is to clone a CentOS LAMP AWS EC2 instance that we've made, then we SSH into it, and then we:

- Manually edit the Apache config file for the given subdomain and SSL cert files.
- Manually structure the mariadb tables
- Manually sftp upload the html/js/php files.
- Hope to God we remember to manually upload files to this web server for every Git push we make...
- Repeat the process for staging/production.
- When it's time to 'deploy' from staging to production, we delete the previous 'production' EC2 instance, clone the existing 'staging' EC2 instance, and point our 'production' IP address to the new clone.

This sucks. I would love to have "continuous deployment', meaning faster and easier server creation, and most importantly, synchronization of Git pushes to files on the webservers. For example, the html/js/jpg/php files on the 'staging' server would automatically receive any updates that are pushed to the 'staging' branch of our Git repo.

Digital Ocean's new 'Apps' feature seems to do this, and it even gives you an automatic SSL cert (if you allow DO to manage your DNS). However, we can not use DO, because:

- Their 'Apps' feature does not support self-hosted Gitlab repos
- Our biggest clients insist on AWS

AWS seems to offer like four products that 'might' server our needs, but it's all confusing as poo poo. Elastic Beanstalk, CodeCommit, and Amplify all seem to offer pieces of what we need.

Should we:

- Use one of the above AWS services, OR
- Add a Git hook that calls a PHP script on our webservers, which in turn pulls our changed html/php/jpg files from Git, OR
- Learn to use Docker (And then figure out how to integrate our Docker images with Git. Like, does the entire Docker image go under Git source control, or do we like install Git *inside* the Docker image, and have the Docker image only pull changes from our html/php/jpg files...)
