Introduction to Email
We manage, support and offer multiple email platforms, these primarily include in-house products like Microsoft Exchange or cloud based products such as Microsoft’s Office 365 Exchange Online.
Email platforms can be flexible and provide granular control over how your business operates. Each platform has it’s own advantages and disadvantages so there isn’t a true one products fits all type of solution.
Why Have In-House (Microsoft Exchange) Email?
Having an in-house email system gives you full control of every setting, not only is this highly flexible but gives you easy access to all your data meaning backups are a breeze. Below are some advantages of in-house email:
- Doesn’t impact your internet connection as much as cloud based email

Deciding to use cloud based email is ideal for small to mid-sized businesses. It offers a worry free setup meaning all the maintenance and security is taken care for you. Below are some advantages of cloud based email:
- Multiple server setup (less likely to go offline)
