Migadu is an e-mail service provider that provide its service for a flat price. It’s built upon open source technologies and market themselves as a service that has no interest in looking at your e-mail. No advertising, no tracking - no bullshit.
I’ve been using Migadu exclusively for about 8 months as of writing and it’s been a very pleasant experience. I use it for all my personal e-mail communications for all my domains and I even had friByte (student organization I’m involved in) switch from self-hosting their e-email to start using Migadu exclusively.
There are a lot of positive things to say about Migadu so I will try my best to list them as good as I can.
As mentioned in the introduction they are using open source technologies and are providing a privacy-first experience, you own your own emails. The service is built upon standard protocols like IMAP, POP and SMTP which means you can take out your e-mail whenever you feel like. It makes it very easy to switch providers if that’s needed.
In the 8 months I’ve been using Migadu I contacted them four times, and they fully answered and/or fulfilled my request each time. I even asked them to split one domain from one of my aliases in my primary mailbox, and they managed to do so within a few hours.
They are quick to reply and very nice people!
Setting up domains is very straight forward, there are excellent instructions that they provide along the way to help even non-techy people. You can even use their nameservers to make it even more convenient (but I haven’t tried it).
It’s intuitive to setup multiple domains, aliases, mailboxes etc. They provide you with a good explanations for their recommended DNS configuration and gives you the option to test it when you’ve finished setting it up. You can run DNS-diagnostics to see if you messed up somewhere in the process.
This was one of the big reasons why I switched from ProtonMail (read about it here). I don’t really use that many mailboxes, but I use ~5, it varies. And the setup for this is also very straight forward. I have my primary mailbox setup with 1 primary domain and 3 alias domains and have catch-all setup for all of the domains. This makes it very convenient when I sign-up for new services or need to provide someone or something with an e-mail address. I can make up something random on the spot instead of having to give away my personal e-mail each time.
I actually don’t have anything bad to say about Migadu.
Do I recommend Migadu? Oh yes I do! It’s been a very pleasent 8 months and I’m really looking forward to continue using them and recommending them!
Also really looking forward to their new CalDav-thingy that they’ve told me has an ETA in January. Hopefully that can help me get away from using iCloud for my personal calendar - who knows!
