Email is now one of the most essential communication tools in our lives, and most businesses cannot survive without it. Few people understand the value of a quality email service until they cannot send or receive it. Remember; no email today affects profits tomorrow, as effectively no email means no business.
Email hosting is the service of providing email accounts for a domain and managing those email accounts. Email hosting services are usually utilised by businesses that have custom email addresses that match their domain name, for example, if your domain name & web address is yourcompany.com, you can create email accounts, such as email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org. You may also want your own domain name & hosting package which we can help you with.
There are several different types of email configurations, each with their own features & benefits.
Email Set Up
Microsoft Exchange Server is part of Microsoft’s line of server products. It is essentially a centralised email storage point, where users have their own mailboxes containing their email, calendars, and contacts which can be accessed using various email clients, such as Microsoft Outlook, both from inside the local network, and externally over the internet. Mailboxes can be shared between users. Email and other data can be easily backed up as it is all stored in one location.
Hosting your email server in the cloud gives businesses the opportunity to utilise all of the benefits of an onsite email server, without the upfront costs of purchasing it. Rather than accessing your email data over your internal network, you access it through your internet connection. This means that you can access your data from anywhere where you can access the internet, as well as your data being safe from worst-case scenarios such as fires, floods, or earthquakes, which would destroy any servers and backups in the immediate vicinity. You also don’t need to worry about maintenance & upgrades as these are all handled in the cloud. Examples of services like this include Microsoft Office 365, Google G Suite, and Hosted Exchange, and can also include a suite of other applications that bring together essential services to help your business, such as online file storage and video conferencing.
Both of these services are more basic email services, and traditionally used more for home users. A POP3 mail server receives e-mails and when a user connects to the mail server to retrieve their mail, the messages are downloaded from the mail server to the user’s hard disk. IMAP mail servers are a bit more complex than POP3 servers and allow e-mail messages to be read and stored on the server until the user explicitly deletes them. This and other characteristics of IMAP operation allow multiple clients to manage the same mailbox. Clients may store local copies of the messages, but these are considered to be a temporary cache.
