I couldn't find a forum specifically for email hosting, so I thought I'd post here. I need a service to host emails where about 99% of them (if needed, I can even have 100%) are simple forwards to other email addresses.
There are plenty of email hosting services like gmail, fastmail, yahoo, etc. But they're all around $5/month/email. I need something dramatically cheaper to host thousands of forwards.
Looking for a budget shared hosting provider...it doesn't have to be a special host that only does email, as specialty typically comes with a higher price tag. There are a lot of hosts out there that will let you set up unlimited forwarders for like $5/mo or less.
I should've really clarified better. I don't mind paying even $100/month for an email solution. It's that I don't want to pay even $1/month/email as I'll only be forwarding for the most part and I'm going to need thousands.
I also need either an API so these forwards are managed automatically or a very easy way to interact with the control panel (bulk import/export and user access control so I can have staff manage this). Ideally an API.
