How to install Mail-in-a-Box

Posted by / Mar 13, 2016 / Categories: Productivity

One of our customers recently told us they are using their BHost VPS to run Mail-in-a-Box. It’s a fantastic, easy to use way to create a mail / productivity server so we thought we’d blog about it here.

Importantly the developers of Mail-in-a-Box have been very security focused, for example by ensuring Let’s Encrypt based TLS encryption can be deployed easily.

Mail-in-a-Box lets you become your own mail service provider in a few easy steps. It’s sort of like making your own gmail, but one you control from top to bottom.

Technically, Mail-in-a-Box turns a fresh cloud computer into a working mail server. But you don’t need to be a technology expert to set it up.

They’ve also created a fantastic video running through the steps to install:
