It’s About Credibility

Are you one of the thousands of businesses running on Gmail or Hotmail email accounts? Like it or not, having your own domain name gives you instant credibility. One of our favorite email providers is Microsoft. Their Exchange Online product is excellent and very affordable. Here are the current plans offered for business:

We typically recommend the $12.50/month per user Office 365 Business Premium option for back office users. This option includes all Microsoft Office tools, Exchange, and Skype. For front office and light users we recommend the $5/month Essentials option. The Essentials option includes Exchange Online plus online versions of Office tools.

Here is why we prefer Exchange Online vs most email providers:

  1. Cloud-based email, calendar, and contacts which means real-time, synchronized access from any computer or mobile device
  2. 50 GB mailbox per user
  3. Custom domain hosting.
  4. Full integration with Outlook 2016 without plugins.
  5. OneDrive 1 TB storage
  6. Generous sending limits of 10,000 recipients per day. Other limits can be found here:

    These limits should support most people’s needs. Bulk mailers should look elsewhere.
