Microsoft Outlook

Microsoft Outlook hardly needs an introduction.

Microsoft Outlook is accessible through your browser and through Office 365 on Mac and PC operating systems. Supporting the shift towards worker mobility, Microsoft Outlook has a mobile app that allows access on iOS and Android devices–just don’t forget to keep an eye on company mobile data usage.

As Microsoft is a top industry leader, their email platform is powerful and robust with features. Auto replies, folder, and email management can be set up to be as productive and error-free as possible. Boasting one of the top spam filters among email service providers, you can also feel at ease about the potential of malware and other threats.

In addition to their optimized usability, Microsoft has partnered with leading companies to create third-party extensions and add-ons that increase Outlook’s functionality and speed-up access to information.

ProtonMail

This Swiss-based email provider has a laser focus on privacy above everything else.

ProtonMail allows users to sign up anonymously. There’s no need to log an IP address as all your emails are end-to-end encrypted, ensuring

The free version has no strings attached (and no advertisements), but it does come with a few drawbacks. The limited to storage space of 500 MB, 150 messages per day, lack of folders, labeling and filters may make the free edition worth skipping for your business.

Proton’s premium membership starts at $5 per month ($48 yearly) and is paired with 5GB of storage, 1,000 messages per day, custom domains a suite of organizational tools.

Zoho

Another business-oriented email service, Zoho offers a free plan that allows up to 25 users and access to features most services require payment for.

Each of the 25 free users has 5 GB of mailbox storage, access to spreadsheets, a word processor, presentation builder, and other tools that support collaboration within your business.

As the free plan is only accessible from a web browser and doesn’t support email forwarding, an annual $3 per user provides your business a wider suite of features including 30 GB of storage, a 30 MB attachment limit and the ability to send cloud files to non-Zoho users.

 Gmail

 Over a billion users across the globe–and for good reason.

Gmail is powerful and interactive. Emails can be automatically filtered into various categories, allowing you to keep track of your emails more effectively.  

Google’s Gmail is on the leading edge of spam blocking technology, and for free, users have access to 15 GB of inbox and Google Drive storage.

For a $6 monthly user fee, Google also offers a paid version in the form of the G Suite. In addition to removing advertisements, users are provided with everything that they need to bring a project to life, including apps for documents, spreadsheets, presentations, shared calendars, video, and voice conferencing.  G Suite also includes double the storage space compared to the free version (30 GB), with access to unlimited group email addresses.
