Dear lazyweb: what service OTHER THAN GSUITE do you use for custom email domain (with catch-all support + multi domains), and calendaring (with DAV support)? I need to jump ship from this GSuite garbage

@zkat I use Protonmail for my custom domain email, but the calendar is still in beta and pretty basic, I doubt it has DAV support yet...

@zkat Do you need both email hosting and calendaring from the same provider? I like migadu for email but I don't think they do calendars. The regex catchall is pretty cool, I use it a lot

@pagrus yep. I want to move my calendar if possible.

@zkat OK well migadu is great if you can find another service that does calendaring. I am interested to hear what people come up with though

@pagrus I've been flooded with people saying fastmail is the way to go

@zkat I thought Fastmail charged per domain? It's been a while since I looked.

@pagrus @zkat I'm not aware of being charged for having two domains on my account, though I'm on an older plan.

It's worth noting that Fastmail does referral codes that give the new account 10% off for one year, and a small credit for the current account, so choose a friend and get them to refer you if you go that way.

@zkat I use Fastmail for mail and an instance of Radicale running on a Tinkerboard for calendaring, to-dos, contacts, and caldav/carddav.

I would bet there are better packaged solutions like NextCloud OwnCloud or FreedomBone but I haven't tried them.

@zkat i use fastmail and protonmail

fastmail has better ux, and a more complete feature set

protonmail's calendar is only now in beta
but let's be realistic here:

sharing your calendar with someone (from the Set of "everyone else") who uses Google calendar becomes an almost insurmountable task of:

i don't wanna be (strong adjective), but could you please click this link (in my presence, so i can see if anything is going wrong) which will share my calendar to yours

@zkat I use ZOHO and Gsuite, but may spend the #indoorspringbreak standing up a Docker-esque instance and see how mailhosting is these days.

@zkat
I'm using tutanota for emails, lot cheaper than those, only limitation is you have to use their clients, which are not the best, but work well.. and are supposedly very secure [?]

they have calendars too, but interoperability is important for me, so vendor lock on client is a no-go, so for that i use etesync..

@zkat I use Baikal for CalDAV & CardDAV. I tried to set up NextCloud but I suck at computer stuff and never got it to work. I didn’t set up my email server myself, but the FE is RoundCube. I dunno what goes on behind it.
