Surprised? No. Disappointed? Yes. We switched from github to gitlab on a DO instance. Recommend 10x over.



As another fan of GitLab: gosh yes, I can't recommend it enough. I also use ownCloud for my personal info management and file syncing. The only thing I don't run myself is email, which I pay Fastmail to do, because dealing with all the required things to have a decent reputation score so I don't end up in a spam box is too painful.

It's a compromise, but you could use a paid SMTP service (e.g. Sendgrid, SMTP2Go) for your outgoing mail and still use your own locally hosted system for the UI and receiving mail. At least that way, you'd have more guarantees over mail safety, etc.

I've never mass-sent emails outside of local domain, but I had set up various MTA/MDAs and from I've seen, proper A+MX+PTR records, configured SPF and DKIM, and having proper RFC-compliant emails (and, uh, obviously, not spamming anyone) should be enough to stay way below the threshold.

GitLab B.V. CEO here. Thanks for mentioning GitLab! I was pretty disappointed not to see it in the overview and a pull request from my teammate wasn't merged https://github.com/cjbarber/ToolsOfTheTrade/pull/38 It is hearthwarming to see three comments mentioning it here.
