Does anyone know how to make a custom email server?
[deleted]

I want to learn how to make a server like gmail.com, using node.js. Any ideas?

You can set up a private email server but you're going to need another legit computer like a raspberry pi to actually run it :/ Or just buy a custom domain with email stuff attached.

MrEconomical

do you mean make an smtp server or a fake mail server

@MrEconomical I want for people to see [email protected] on the from section

@willuhmjs You don't need a custom email server for that. Just use godaddy and get a domain that comes with email.

@PDanielY What if I use freenom and link it to gmail?

@willuhmjs I don't think freenom allows free email with free domain
