Why I choose Tutanota for email hosting

Tutanota-logo

Tutanota, ProtonMail, Mailfence, Disroot, Mailbox, and Posteo, all of them are good email providers, secure with a free or low price. But Posteo does not support using your own domain, disroot needs you to fill a form to apply. So I narrow down the list to four options, Tutanota, ProtonMail, Mailfence, and Mailbox.

Why I choose Tutanota:

1. Secure and privacy

No, I do not trust any company.

2. Cheap price

Lowest price plan with own domain:

Tutanota and Mailbox are cheaper.

3. Simple and fast

All I need is email and address book, sometimes calender. Mailbox offers too much, drive, chat, tasks, and office files. Also, it is too slow to log in to the webmail.

But if you like using email client, Mailbox is better, it supports IMAP and SMTP, you can decrypt or encrypt emails with local PGP keys. I am not, so I prefer Tutanota.

How to add your domain in Tutanota:

  1. In “Setting” -> “Global setting” -> “Custom email setting”, click the “+
    ” button.
  2. Set a TXT DNS record for your domain to verify that the domain is yours.
  3. Set MX, SPF, DKIM, and DMARC.
  4. In “Settings” -> “User management”, add user for your own domain, or in “Email” -> “Email aliases” adding email alias.
