Basic Must Haves
Dedicated Email Service
Fastmail.com provides BlogPrefect.com’s dedicated email service. It is fast, efficient and mean on spam. When running a self hosted website, you are given a basic form of host side email management which doesn’t run great and is locked away.
You can always forward your emails to Gmail or similar from your host. If you want to handle your mail effectively, without hassle and with a robust non-Google influence, FastMail is a good bet.
