I bought a DS415+ 2 weeks before Sitex in Sim Lim (and apparently it's still cheaper than buying at Sitex LOL).
It's currently running 3 x 4TB in RAID 5.
I've set up mail server on the NAS, but my mail are being delivered to people's junk inbox due to the lack of reverse DNS.
I don't have a static IP and I'm using dynamic dns. Is it possible to setup reverse DNS while using dynamic dns?
Anyone knows how to obtain/configure reverse DNS from Singtel?
why not just get a cheap hosting company to host your e-mail

Setup my Synology 214se and I must say I like the GUI. Though I've encountered a strange problem not sure if it's a user or equipment issue. I've created the MyDs login and able to login into Synology website. However not able to login into MyDs on my NAS this is quite frustrating since I can't creat a QuickConnect and access many features. Sent an email to Synology tech support but I've yet to hear from them. Any idea how long it takes before they reply? Will be calling my local distro for help.
3-5 days. Their support is kinda bad but once they started conversing with you, it will be fast.

I do not understand why people are still using quickconnect.
Do learn to perform portforward instead, it will do you better in the long run

no, once it is expanded you cannot decrease it's capacity. data integrity will be messed up.
if you don't mind, just leave it in there, upgrade the remaining 3tb drives slowly to larger capacities.
Yah raid or shr is always messy...experienced once..never used again...raid is not backup..and home users dun need to use raid.
Controller spolit , that 's it.

How are you going to copy and paste when ur disks failed. RAID is not backup, but can u be more diligent doing backup than a machine? Recover is not messy when you know how to do it. Don't blame the technique when you can't master it. RAID and automated backup is the gold standard for data availability for enterprises and applies across all grounds

Unless you have a better approach, your reasoning is flawed.

Totally flawed. Sometimes, it will be better keeping quiet.

I've tried out some email hosting by some of my web host, some is a bit slow (email takes some time to send out). And also if I can host a email server on my NAS, why not haha 😄

The last time I tried using the NAS as an email server, the mails were all listed as spam cause the dynamic IP addresses given by SingNet were in those internet spam database (eg. DNSBL Information - Spam Database Lookup) which people are using.

Was thinking of using Viewquest for the email server as they have the fix IP address. But haven't confirm with them if it is possible.

I'm exploring upgrading from my current WD MyBookLive to a Synology NAS.

Because it's primarily to store my photos, I read up on the photo station app and it seems to have lots of problem with creating thumbnails at reasonable speeds. I have tons of photos and I'm kinda worried about this.

Has photo station app be updated to address this problem?

Precisely as you said RAID is not backup.i am using free file sync to copy my contents from Nas to ext hdd. If either one fails, i shall copy and paste. I run it as a batch job to regularly backup....imho...it is simple and effective for home user...what i meant by messy is that...data may not be easily recoverable for the home user like me...say if the nas fails and the model of nas has eol...what next? Since u are the expert, yes you may know how to recover the raid disks...but it will take a few more steps and knowledge. I will jus copy and paste from my back up one step. Of course this fulfill my requirement for a HOME backup. I am not running a datacenter here...jus my two cents
