I looked into this at one point. But you can get a VPS at linode for $25/month capable of running a full qmailtoaster. Obviously not powerful enough for a million users, but I have over 1000 spread across 10 or so domains on it with no issues.


With AWS, if you get a dedicated IP address you just spent $25/month. Then there are message fees, data fees, compute usage, metrics, etc. etc. All the fees are small, but added up I found it to be more expensive than just running a toaster on linode. There are possibly other vendors too, I'm not doing an advertisement for linode, that's just who I wound up using.


Depending on the number of users and traffic, you might be able to get by with an even smaller VPS. I have one for DNS that is only $5/month, 1G ram, 1 CPU, 25G storage. Scale your machine up/down depending on your requirements.

I've been researching moving my toaster from its current home into AWS, which is why I had those URLs bookmarked. Haven't actually done it yet, so I don't know how AWS deals with complaints.  Sorry I can't be more helpful on that front.

    Hi Chris - I have heard that AWS is really unforgiving if any
    spam gets sent out of the mailserver. Have you had experience
    running a full mailserver on AWS?

    Despite everything we do to control outgoing spam - including
    send throttling - our users get hacked and their email
    credentials get used by spammers. We are able to limit the damage
    to a minimal amount of spam but nevertheless we get some complaints.

    AWS has a form where you can request the outbound smtp

    They also have a form for requesting reverse DNS on your elastic
    IP so your mail doesn't run afoul of DNS validation.

        I'm not sure, maybe start smtp under different port.
