Update on this: since October 4, I've received an additional 17 emails, of which 5 generated useful discussion, and 2 out of those 5 had legitimately interesting opportunities.

Also, despite having set up SPF and DKIM, LinkedIn continues to reject my reply emails.

Thanks for writing the post! I thought it was interesting and deserved a second submission.

I played around with hosting my own email server for a bit, but gave up. It’s too risky that an important email will get blocked because my server isn’t trusted.

Try changing your IP address if you're self hosting the email server. Maybe your IP range has been blackholed in its entirety.

Hosting your own email is hopeless. You need to pay for an email service like SES.
