Just want to confirm that no email storage servers are located in the US.
All my traces, nothing out of the country is showing.
Your traffic, even Canadian on both sides, can travel through the US though
(My apologies, but my curiosity has been peaked.)
Does this have anything to do with the latest from the Snowden/NSA/Gmail ordeal in the US by chance?
If so, Canada is complicit with the NSA, and do the same things. Big brother truly is watching. It's made really easy in this (growing) digital world of ours.
If I'm off on my assumption, again, my apologies.
Scratch that. None of my business
Hey no worries gamerguy. Actually I'd been wanting to move away from my '@shaw.ca' email address for a while, but had always preferred a Canada-hosted email service. The NSA stuff did prompt me to ask the question, but only because it reminded me that getting an own-domain Canadian hosted email service had been on my todo list.
kevinds, I had thought about it, but I don't really want to put any effort into managing the email service, managing the actual emails I get is enough effort
(Also, I suspect that Shaw might block the necessary ports with a home internet plan, but who knows)
No, the ports needed are open. Port 25 incoming is open. Port 25 outgoing is blocked, so you set your email server to use mail.shaw.ca for sending emails - standard feature in all servers
You are aware of your options, so only you can answer what will work best for you
Only way you can be sure, is to host your own email server, there are some good free Windows servers (for 5 email accounts or less) that you can install yourself too
