@yarmo I mean, you say that you don't use it for critical things, so that's most of the benefit of running it yourself gone. And you kind of ignored the whole reputation thing, it's not trivial to stop all your email from going to spam, it can be a lot of work to get your IP to be trusted, etc.
@Matter valid points, I might write a follow-up tomorrow.
My plan is definitely to receive everything on my private server at some point, but I have given it one year to show me it's completely reliable.
With regards to reputation, yeah, I should have mentioned that as well :( I rushed this :( I send everything through mailgun, that takes care of most of the trust issues. Haven't had much issues with this way of doing it.
Thanks for the fair comment! I'll put a little update :)
