Yeah, we pulled a client from GoDaddy to DreamHost a long time ago. They still use GoDaddy for their Microsoft 365/email needs. We couldn’t convince them to move over to another provider for those services. I don’t blame them as GoDaddy made it difficult/impossible to move/transfer the Microsoft 365/Email services. It has been better for them to be on DreamHost even with having to work with GoDaddy for their needs.
DreamHost please integrate the Microsoft 365 services into accounts like you do with Google Workspaces. I know DreamHost is a Linux/Open Source only type of company, but…it really helps those of us working with businesses…besides Microsoft is attempting the open source approach nowadays.
We use DreamCompute and DreamObjects for our needs and it is a great service and product! Highly recommend it.
We have one client who has a static site on Shared Hosting and we use the email service provided by DreamHost for a couple of our other clients. That is what started my surprise about the email forwarding for user accounts being disabled when attempting to meet a client’s request to forward their email to another account. This was the first time I saw this “solution” done by a hosting provider.
Care to share a bit more details on your mail forwarding alternatives/workarounds? Our requirements are that each user must have their own mailbox through the companies domain. They do not like the idea of using gmail for their email services.
