Outlook and gmail used to offer free email hosting, not anymore apparently so I'm searching for alternatives before setting a mail server on my own VPS. My requirements are:

  • Free web based hosting service for domain names, at least for like 3 accounts
  • supports mail forwarding and alias and all that stuff. Forward incoming mails to gmail, and sending from gmail or whatever.
  • Guarantee that it always be free so I don't have to move to another service 2 months later.
  • The admin should be able reset the password of the users, He should be a real super user
  • 3
    Please not that this site is about software, not service recommendation – and specifically hosting requests are off-topic (see: Are hosting recommendation requests on-topic?)

    @Izzy I see, but what I'm looking for is more of a webappp than a traditional hosting

  • Not to be a Debbie Downer, but I think you are going to have a hard time with this. I sincerely hope someone can point you in the right direction as far as a web app, etc. but I personally (me, myself and I only) would suck it up and pay for the VPS. Jul 20 '14 at 17:25
  • @Anaksunaman the domain not mine, for a friend, not willing to take responsibility if it got hacked or anything, not not willing to host it on my vps, my vps is mine, besides, configuring mail servers is a pain, making sure that it won't send as spam, and ssl and all that shit, two things really wast my time - configuring bind and setting up a mail server. I don't do that unless I really really really have to

  • possibly this question should have been moved to webapps Nov 17 '20 at 1:15

You should try Zoho Mail as they have 5 free users with the possibility to refer people.

  • As of 2017, the offer is now with 25 users.
