I built a solution I'd like to share with the world.
.mobileconfigfor your mailboxes.
Utilizing the web-app is quite simple. Just enter your mailbox credentials including your IMAP + SMPT hostnames, usernames and passwords, and the intelligent super-computer robot will generate your file and present you with a button to download it or a button to copy the URL, should you chose to send it to someone.
The web-app also features a API, which allows you to enable your app to generate
.mobileconfig files programatically.
You can also preview the
.plist file live on the website after it's been generated. Take a moment to read through and learn how they work. You could copy the contents of the preview into your own
email.mobileconfig and it'll work just like the one the web-app offers for download.
The absolute best part about the web-app is that it does not store anything and does not have a database, so you can live 100% confidently that your data won't ever be misused. The source of the website + API is open source available on GitHub.
Now you're a master of all things email.
Never again spend 45 minutes explaining to your grandma how to set-up her custom @familyname.com email inbox you've set up for her.
I want to mention my happiness with the services at Vercel which make this little app possible. The website uses Next.js and Vercel's Serverless Functions to make this possible.
Do yourself a service and check out Vercel, and while you're at it… why don't you follow me on Twitter?
