Get Off The Free Teat of Gmail, Hotmail and Yahoo by Setting Up Your Own Linux Email Server Using iRedMail

In this final episode of Tech Chop, I talked about how I decided to give up my free Google Apps email account and setup my own email server on an Ubuntu Linux VPS using iRedMail.

As you can see in the video, iRedMail is probably the easiest email server you will ever setup. You basically stand up a plain Ubuntu server with no other applications, then you run the install script from iRedmail which installs just about everything you need.

I am personally doing this to avoid the NSA's PRISM program, as well as to stop giving Google unfettered access to my private email information that they can then turn over to the feds, or sell to marketers.
