Hi guys, I made a tool to hide my personal email by using "email alias". The project is fully open source and packaged as Docker image. The self-hosting instruction is relatively simple, should work on any Linux distribution (thanks to Docker) and the most complex part is maybe DNS setup on your DNS registrar.
The code has been deployed in production since several months now and is stable. It also comes with some niceties like a Chrome/Firefox/Safari extension and (soon) mobile apps.
The github repo is on https://github.com/simple-login/app
Let me know if you have any feedbacks/questions!

This looks really interesting, on my list of next things to try. Thank you for your work and for making it self hostable.
Very cool and smart!
Looks nice but I’ve always used Spamgourmet for this type of functionality.
Awesome tool! I wonder if this works with traefik v2?
This is cool.
I don’t understand, can you use this to centralize logins to multiple sites with only one email? Like a SSO?
It looks pretty cool. I personally don’t have a use for it, but there are a couple of people I think would use it.
The only criticism I’d make is that it is a number of components, all in a single docker container. I would consider splitting it into several Dockerfiles and building around a stack that may be able to float around a docker swarm.
Ive been trying to do this with things I build for personal use, and now that I have a couple of servers with shared storage it’s a dream.
