I wanted to set up my own email service, and the domain repl.email wasn't taken so I decided to go with it. Aside from the domain name, I'm determined to run the whole thing for free.

So far, I'm using repl.it for hosting, smtp2go to send emails, improvmx to forward emails, and gmail (a single, free account) to recieve them all.

The main difference between this, and other emails providers, is that this email will be linked to your repl.it account. No need for passwords, or anything!

Anyway, just figured I'd announce it, if anyone has ideas or requests for features, drop a comment!

It’s not authenticating anymore

@retronbv are you getting any errors in the console? Cause it seems to work for me.

Im on my iPad, but it usually works :( @MarcusWeinberger

MarcusWeinberger (590)

@retronbv ah, repl.it have a problem with repl auth on safari. Try logging in on another device and use your username and API key to login

I am using chrome and safari @MarcusWeinberger

MarcusWeinberger (590)

@retronbv Chrome on iPad still uses the Safari webkit, due to Apple policies

Hey! Can I help with development? I have some experience, and message me with questions whenever. Thanks!

MarcusWeinberger (590)

@replmail well the only aspects we're looking for help with right now is a better mail system. Right now all email gets forwarded to a single inbox (used to be gmail) using improvmx.com, but if there were a way to get a real mailserver on repl.it that would be much better.

@MarcusWeinberger Okay, Can I try to make a mail server? I kinda know how...

MarcusWeinberger (590)

@replmail yes definitely that would be a ton of help! btw i replied to your email

replmail (2)

@MarcusWeinberger Ok! So, all I need the link to the repl sign-in page, and i can do it! In the future, ill message you on repl.email.

@MarcusWeinberger Hey! I finished the web app, all I need is access to be able to fork the repl, because when I try it does not work. And the server is coming along well!

MarcusWeinberger (590)

@replmail ah well forking it should work there are just some private keys in a .env file so it wont run, i'm afraid i cant give you access to those, however, cause it would compromise the security of repl.email, is there any other way to do it?
