Small-host email servers aren't an impossible technical challenge.
The problem is that big tech spam filters and block lists prefer to block everything that isn't already a walled garden email host like Gmail, Outlook etc.
This is not net neutrality.
And LOTS of spam is sent out from walled gardens' services.
I propose that you have a primary email at a non-big tech host. People can contact you there and the walled gardens will have to learn.
@benjaoming yes. I totally agree. I personally hav not much experiences sending emails from my servers.. but once I tried.. then found out that I have blocked by spamhaus. the reason was simple. dynamic ip. well.. i am running my server unregistered. but that doesn't mean that i did send any spam to any one. it even take away proper right to try out and learn to setup/manage a mailing server.
