FastMail Advent 2016

Yes, those wacky Aussies are at it again. Welcome to the FastMail Advent Blog series for 2016. One post per day on the challenges and rewards of running the premier independent email service for users around the world.

When we started the Advent blog series back in 2014 one of the most common questions was "aren’t you worried about giving away all your secrets?" Actually, we really are not. Running an email service is hard work, and providing the speed, reliability and stream of new features would not be easy to replicate. So we’re happy to share our stories. We hope you enjoy hearing more about what goes on behind the scenes!
