Configure Mandrill as mail server and GMAIL as mailbox
What do you do when a client of yours ask for a mailbox? Some developers prefer to buy mailboxes on their domain providers (1-5$ year/mailbox), others are so experienced in postfix and unix administration that can configure a mail server in 5 minutes. I sincerely hate handling mailboxes. They are long to configure, i don’t like self-hosted web interfaces like roundCube and i hate to spend time to fine-tune the server in order to avoid black lists and spam.
So i come up with this revelation:
let’s use something like Mandrill which has a huge free tier to handle personal emails.
I expected to find tons of material to support my idea or some critical issue that destroys it completely… but actually i found a little and i was able to make it working perfectly!
