I'm designing a website for a Canadian political organization which isn't very well funded. While Google's solution for nonprofits is pretty solid, either Canadian or political organizations don't meet the requirements. Also, I expect to have more than 10 accounts. Besides $50/year for each account is way too much for a small nonprofit organization.

What would be a cheap, solid email solution?

Office 365 is $6 per user per month, but for that money you can have shared web hosting, which will also include unlimited e-mail. If you just need e-mail the hosting option would probably be much cheaper.

+1 - Shared hosting is the way! – Aurelio De Rosa Nov 9 '11 at 12:18
Thing is, I'll use Heroku for hosting so no email with them, and $6/month > $50/year. – jonallard Nov 9 '11 at 15:03
You can buy e-mail only packages. My (Dutch) domain provider wants 2 euro a month for 30 boxes and 1,5Gb storage. There must be Canadian parties offering this. – pritaeas Nov 9 '11 at 15:18

If you own a VPS, try setting up hMailServer.


Was thinking the same. Great free option. I use it for my own VPS. The only catch is its Windows only, and I bet the cheap solution mentioned won't be using Windows likely.
