Hi all,

Thanks for reaching out to us. Your project looks super-awesome and I really wish I had better news for you.

Unfortunately, the project to build a small self-hostable server for Tutanota is a long time into the future. Right now, we are improving the email and calendar clients and it will take a few more years until we are finished with that. So I don't think we can be of any help to you.

Kind regards,

Tutao GmbH
