There are many debates if one should consider hosting email solutions like Office 365 instead of conventional email hosting.
Many want to know why they should consider Microsoft’s email solution over other hosted email solutions out there. There are a lot of advertisements floating around lately for Office 365, whether from Microsoft direct or partner companies. Why not consider Office 365, the next generation of hosted messaging and collaboration system.
Following is a comparison on the benefits of Office 365 & problems associated with typical POP3 or IMAP email hosting, in order to help you make an informed decision about whether Office 365 is the right choice for you.
Finally, one of the biggest advantages of moving to the Office 365 platform is that you can get the entire Microsoft Office suite with your email plan. Different plans include different combinations of mailbox-only, mailbox and Office suite, OneDrive, Yammer, Teams, Skype, and SharePoint. This means that you get not only your mailbox, but a full copy of Microsoft Office (different versions available, depending on the plan you choose).
It simplifies licensing dramatically, since you no longer have to deal with purchasing box or open license copies and your Office suite is always up-to-date on all your devices – PC, Mac, iPhone, Android…it doesn’t matter!
