It doesn't look like JH has an email hosting plan similar to other hosts such as this one. But the shared hosting plans are inexpensive enough to allow people to sign up for hosting and use only the email service. Looking for SMTP/POP3 access for 4 users. This is mainly personal mail, not business, but it needs to be reliable. They would be pulling all mail off the server with each POP3 session, and using SMTP to send mail. I have a VPS here at JH but don't want to go through the added work of installing the software, getting SSL certificates for the mail domain, and all the other stuff that's needed to host email on that server. I'm considering a shared hosting plan just for the email features. I'm concerned about the black listing problem that seem to plague web hosting vendors (including JH). Is this a real concern or is JH good at keeping the servers off black lists? I like that JH is transparent about their issues, with public notification in the forum for example. I'm sure many hosts just handle these problems via the support tickets so their users have no idea how much of a problem it really is at those hosts. So I have 2 basic questions: 1) Is JH shared hosting going to cause me a lot of support work because of black listing? 2) Should I go through the effort of just using my VPS?
