It has been several days since I set my MiaB. Here is a short passage about my experience thus far. I hope its not rude to post it on the forum. My MiaB is installed in DO and domain is registered at Namecheap.
I was using Protonmail(PM)before I made the shift. I left Protonmail due major lacking functionality. I must mention though, I had no issues with trust contrary to how I felt with Google products. I was a protonmail paid user.
- No functionality to program filters to enable mail redirections to other addresses based on any condition.
- Extreme cost. The cost increases a unbearably as domains, storage size increase.
- No matter how much people attest otherwise, even their paid support is unacceptable.
- Force inclusion of “sent by protonmail” upon each update for Android and no options to disable this even for paid users.
It sounds very well like I am trying to put Protonmail down but what I want to say is that I suffered enough at their hands. The point is I am absolutely in love with what MiaB offers. Its just what I need.
It offers a simple to use email solution. The Roundcude functionality. Roundcube doesn’t look at good as Outlook or Gmail. But RoundCube’s functionality is hands down far far superior.
I can run the setup multiple times. I don’t know why but its a nice feature of MiaB.
Functionality for additional domains is excellent. Just add the nameservers and set an alias and everything just works!
Nextcloud is tighly integrated. Apps are disabled for probably security reasons but the out of box functionalit is just right for Nextcloud.
Webhosting is out of the box! I do not have to spend time or money configuring a different server to host my personal page. I use MiaB and I save money.
I installed wireguard (my favourite VPN) and it works so great within the MiaB. No conflicts yet. I know I am not supposed to change the box but I just made this exception and it did not break my MiaB.
Automated backups of my data makes me stress less. Ive made an image of my Digital Ocean server and if MiaB someday gives an error, I will get that image up and running in no time.
I am not an IT administrator. MiAB still offered me great instructions to make my own email box. MiAB helped me do email right without wasting my time. That is a huge plus.
I am yet to see some downsides of MiaB. I do not think MiaB is without any down sides. May be I will find them in future and I will post any if I find. But I do would like to thanks the developers for making MiaB possible. Thank you very much.
