[it-squad] - about emails @pirateparty.be (mailboxes, forwards, mailing-lists)
Our mails are hosted at Infomaniak and it costs now 120€ / year. They invites us to upgrade because their old tools are evolving. It is not mandatory but for instance, the antispam filter is not working nicely.
Until now they provided a single fee for multiple services and they are evolving to a «on demand price/service».
(I suppose that one day or another we will have to upgrade or change)
We use them mainly for our emails @pirateparty.be.
The website, the wiki and some other old tools are hosted by Hetzner.
The Upgrade Proposal
Is to agree to the upgrade and optimize our usage but it will cost us probably more then 120€ / year.
The Do It Yourself Proposal
Is to implement our own mail server+webmail+imap+antispam+antivirus+backup and ask our current @piratepaty.be mail users to migrate their mailboxes or keep a copy for and by themslef. This may ask more human resources, time and discussions and probably not less money neither.
- For an it-squad it is a nice chalenge and probably a long discussion about the tools. :construction_worker_tone1:
The idea is to evolve to one of those two Proposals and find a concensus about it if possible.
