Building a website is an exercise in patience. There are a lot of resources out there and if you have enough fortitude and strength you can get through it! I recently ran into an email hosting problem. I was trying to use my website hosting service to also host my email address but messages were being received after 20 minutes or so, which is not good. So I set up a free zoho mail account. Zoho is free to use with 1 domain for up to 25 users. The interface is nice and it’s pretty easy to set up. You just have to change the MX records and then it’s pretty instant. I also found this helpful YouTube video to integrate the zoho email address with your personal gmail account. Life is good again. (You’re probably wondering what cactus have to do with email hosting… I just thought it was a pretty picture.)
