Which mail provider?


Which mail provider do you connect/connect with NextCloud?

Should I simply use Gmail with my custom domain or I use some open source provider that then also saves mails on the Nextcloud server and not google?

Nextcloud does not save emails. You can use every email provider.

Thank you.
But I can enable email backing up to nextcloud server also, right?

I recommend Thunderbird if the goal is to archive and backup email, along with support for Nextcloud and Google.

You can make a backup and sync it to Nextcloud. Mail app is a client, similar to Thunderbird.


This is perfect thank you!

Then it makes sense I install Nextcloude with all apps and Thunderbird mail on the same VPS, right?
And then I could also copy the whole VPS to another VPS or my computer at home somehow?
