Welcome to Part 3 of hosting your own email. You’re going to need to make sure you have all the pieces put together for the next part. This video is about gathering the pieces. To continue you’ll need:

-Access to your router (with a non-NAT and non-CGNAT IP on the WAN interface)
-An ISP that doesn’t block port 25 (check with GRC ShieldsUP! https://www.grc.com/shieldsup)
-Your Mail Server (We’re using the DS2422+ from Synology with MailPlus Server)
-A Domain (I’m using bitsandbourbon.com at Google Domains)
-An SMTP Relay (We’re using DNS Exit http://www.dnsexit.com/services/outgoing-email-smtp-relay/)
