    Hi guys...

    I'm getting sick and tired of aweber and I've decided the time has come to move on to something I have more control over...

    I want to set up a self-hosted email service... The only problem is that I have no idea on where to start :(

    This is what I've understood so far:

    I need a VPS
    I need a email/autoresponder script
    I need a SMTP service

    I have read a lot and looked at a lot of VPS' but I have never used a VPS before, so I really don't know what to look for...

    My dream scenario would be a all in one solution, where I pay a monthly fee and everything is sat up for me + I can do what I want ;)

    Can you guys help point me in the right direction...

    Thanks guys... I consider myself a pretty good googler and I have actually spend a lot of time reading (and googling ;)). But that really helped. Thanks
