Ask HN: Looking to setup my own email server – should I do it or not bother?

Hi,

I'm running my email on a custom domain through a 3rd party for a couple of years now. Initially, things were pretty good but their service has been slowly deteriorating.

I have a bunch of domains and mailboxes and do not want to spend a fortune paying for each mailbox that I own and am looking at setting up my own email server.

I was looking at mailinabox and it looked pretty good. However, I do understand that managing an email server is no joke and my emails could all land up in no man's land.

Has anyone successfully started using their own email server in the past few years?
