Topic: Can you recommend a host for iRedMail. I've tried so many with no luck

I've used iRedMail before with great success but this was a few years back now.

I need to do the same again but I can't find anywhere to host: I've tried DigitalOcean (port 25 blocked), Amazon Web Services (port 25 blocked and so far no luck getting them to open it), I've tried HostWinds (every IP I get is listed in UCEPROTECTL2 blacklist)

If in recent times you've managed to roll out iRedMail somewhere would you mind sharing with me which provider you used.

Thanks very much.

Cheers
Chris

Maybe give Linode a try? https://www.linode.com

I'm a 10-year old Linode client, after Linode announced they blocked port 25, i didn't try to setup a new server on Linode myself after our first one (obviously it's our currently running mail server for @iredmail.org - "mail.iredmail.org"), but about 2 weeks ago i opened a support ticket to ask them open port 25 for my new VPS for testing our own email archiving software (still work in progress), they told me that since i'm a loyal client, all my new VPS won't have port 25 blocked. smile

if you really need Linode, sign up with my Referral Code, my Linode account will receive a credit of $15-20.00. smile

Thanks very much smile

Right I'll check out Linode and keep my fingers crossed.

Yeah I had a similar experience with Digital Ocean, my one account dated from a time before the port blocking, and my security profile meant I could spin up new Droplets also without 25 blocked. Trouble was it was in a Data centre that was a bit older and didn't offer many new features.

I'm a new customer to linode and I setup a new server earlier this week, it had port 25 open by default. I've sent/received emails with the new linode as a port forwarding proxy in front of my iRedMail server that I'm hosting at home.

I use OVH Cloud.  Dedicated Server.  No issues!

Thanks everyone for the suggestions.

I'm back on the case this weekend, and signing up to the providers you'e suggested, and giving them a spin.
