I realised that various other distros have "vanity" email accounts for their community.
Manjaro doesn't have that, so I thought I'd like to do something similar.
To that end I've registered several "Manjaroo" domains and can therefore offer (free) email forwarding to community members. That is, you can have a "email@example.com" email address which forwards to a regular email account.
Currently I have registered:
These could be set up as aliases for each other, used as independent domains, or we could settle on using only one.
I might take donations if you wanted email hosting rather than forwarding, and certainly anything towards the cost of domain registration would be nice - but I'm not worried about that for the moment.
I'm also not certain whether email "forwarding" counts towards a daily "send" limit. From my initial testing I don't think it does, but if this can't be done completely for free and people want to keep it then I can ask for some funding at that point:
|Outgoing per day||Yearly cost||Adjusted|
I'm already paying for Migadu's base/"mini" level for my own email so if this is needed I'd only need to make up the difference.
I'm not sure about the best way to organise this. To begin with I suspect a request via PM (with desired email address and forward details) would be the best option.
If you want to try this then let me know.
Any other ideas are welcome.
- is great. Gimme.
- is silly.
- should use a different domain name.
- is something else which I've posted about.
Which email/domains should be maintained?
