    See our service at - we're actually 100% open-source (unlike everyone else that says they're open-source, but actually only has the front-end published). We're a great alternative and you can bring any mail client you want (e.g. Thunderbird).

    Unlike Skiff, Proton, and Tuta... we're _actually_ 100% open-source. Those providers that advertise as open-source really only open-source the front-end, when the back-end is the most sensitive part of an email service.

  • Using to forward fully hosted email
    1 project | /r/dreamhost | 1 Sep 2023
    Has anyone used to forward fully hosted email? I started using Hey for my gmail accounts and like it and want to fold in my Dreamhost email accounts but unfortunately that option doesn't exist for fully hosted anymore. I think I can use it but this is not my area of expertise.
