  1. Sorry but either you have no idea about IT or you are being a dick.. This is not self hosted that's why many of us came. As many have said click bait title should have said paid for

  2. Anyone here done self hosted mail using power MTA? Its one of my favorites. Just curious if there are a few guys in here

  3. does "self hosted" mean nothing to you?

    don't say its self hosted if its not self hosted.
    you have someone else hosting your server(inmotion hosting)

  4. Hi Wendell, very good and content you have here. Thank you. I use Inmotion for a while, they are really good. QQ: For many time i never use the e-mail in my own server for many reasons, one is because take a lot of resources, two: if for some reason you need to migrate the server sometimes can be a problem. 3: Is not too friendly with users like my wife who need e-mail in the phone and computer synchronized. Any suggestion to solve this? Thanks.

  5. sir i have purchased a dedicated server with hostgator with tow dedicated ip addresses i contacted hostgator support to setup an email server for me but the email is going in spam … they have impropery setup the server … so can you help me to setup the server .. i can pay

  6. i have a question, I can possibly know what email server running at the backend of my cpanel by looking at the console? i am planning to move from different hosting

  7. I registered domain & webhosting at Setting email in cpanel and using email client software to send/receive email but they suspended my account. I lost everything.

  8. i am installed cpanel in my server using digitalocean. from my webmail i can not sent to any gmail . but can send to any please help me to solve

  9. I'm lost, i went and registered a domain with and then setup an email address there. How do i get this working? Also, what If i have Ubuntu Server running on a VM already ?

  10. I'll have to try this setup on my vps. I tried 2 years ago but gave up when I couldn't get Microsoft to accept my emails. it was probably something to do with ~all.

  11. how to share few email accounts for friends and family and how they can manage to setup or change personal passwords? are options for that on cpanel or somehow ? thanks.

  12. Is it possible to get similar video for ispconfig.. cpanel is paid if get a dedicated server so I opted to use free ispconfig.. but would love to see similar videos on ispconfig

  13. Great video, agree that DKIM should get it's own video, but I think you did a pretty good job of explaining SPF.
    I also run my own mail server using iredmail and while it doesn't apply auto updates, you are notified via your email when patches are available for the system. SSL cert's for webmail are also provided and kept current using letsencrypt and also provides activesync! OSS FTW!

  14. But what happens when you restart to apply and update and receive an email? does it get lost? does it have somekind of buffer or cache?

  15. I admire people who admin email servers… It really sucks! we lost email services for like 3 hours and the entire company (globally) was falling a part. Not joking I work for a telecom vendor we build and sell Voip and Data products and ironically we all avoid to call others and one day for unknown reasons for me emails stopped working… it was chaos! I was forced to talk to people and be social and say things like "hi, how are you? hey how're your kids?" to get work done.

  16. Is there a video planned about setting up a spam filter? Getting a lot of spam is the only reason for me why I still use Gmail

  17. Gday, Can you pay for ONE cpanel account and use it on multiple vps/box's or do you need to buy it for every box

  18. Wendell ~ GSuite (f/k/a Google Apps for Work) has a data addendum that specifically prohibits google from data mining for advertising or other purposes. My employer uses it. I reviewed the contract and get the SOC1 and SOC2 reports by the independent accountants.

  19. Could you format your information a bit better? I like all the information but you go off on a tangent of other content, stuff you like and get for a noob like me its hard to keep up when you keep mixing all these terms up. I want all the information you got but would like to know which is extra and which is part of the setup process first.

  20. I respect you want to target the not-so-techy viewers as well, but I'm sure techys and non-techys will both agree that cpanel is crap.. polished in crap. presented in crap.. and sold as premium crap. difficulty level: adolescent. we need at least level 1! 😇

  21. The best way to set up an email server is to get a google mail account. Set your mx records to point at google and then relax. Unless you enjoy being blacklisted and having all your mail get caught in spam filters.
