The answer to whether you need a professional, enterprise class email system comes down to whether you need to rely on your email system being available and reliable in order to conduct business. For most businesses, the answer is YES. Email is no longer a luxury. It has long since become a business necessity.
Is it for Home or Business use - If you have more than 5 people in your organization, chances are you need to collaborate and you use your email to manage your business communications.
If you are using email strictly for home use, there are many email platforms that are satisfactory for the home user that are essentially free. However, do not expect these systems to offer business class availability and features.
Do you plan to Grow – If you have plans to grow your business, be cautious implementing a system that is based on a “free” email solution. While it may be enticing at first, you should plan for the eventual point at which you will need a more robust system. Will you have to maintain old emails? Will you be faced with an upgrade or data migration headache?
