When your email goes down, it’s like your entire business comes to a screeching halt. You are no longer able to communicate effectively with the outside world and you have this aching feeling in your stomach that you are losing business by the minute or someone important is eagerly trying to contact you. Having a reliable company to host your email is of the utmost importance in today’s world.
Ten years ago, I was fed up with the endless problems I was having with my previous email. Finally, I found an email hosting service that I didn’t have to worry about because of their outstanding reliability. As you can imagine, it was like finding gold. I have held on to it ever since and will never let go. I have never had any problems or doubts of what might happen to the gigs of emails I have securely stored in the cloud. Working for Newton Marketing, I insisted Newton use the same service not only internally, but for all of our hosted email customers. We have never been more pleased.
When relying on your email year after year, you want to make sure that it will work with the devices and systems your business uses. With Newton email hosting, you’ll always be able to get access to your mail from your phone, tablet, laptop, or desktop computer.
You might already be familiar with terms like POP and IMAP where your device has to check for mail every 5, 10, or 15 minutes. That’s all good, but what if you want it to be instantaneous. With Newton’s Mobile Sync service, as soon as mail is available it is sent to your device. But it does more than that. It syncs your mail, contacts, tasks, notes and calendar.
Webmail has become the desktop client replacement for many of today’s businesses. It allows your employees to access their mail from just about any Internet browser from anywhere in the world they have Internet access. It provides a consistent interface loaded with all the features you’d expect.
As a business, you might want the webmail to match your company colors, display your logo or be hosted on your own domain name. With Newton, we can customize the experience for your employees.
As you accumulate more mail, you’ll need more space. Newton provides each mailbox with 25 gigs of storage (100 gigs for Exchange users) and allows up to 50mb attachments. This is great for keeping all your mail in one place. But what about archiving an entire organization of mail? That can be done with Newton’s Email Archiving service which provides organizations with peace of mind and a plan of retention which may be a requirement.
As your business grows, so will the number of mailboxes you’ll need. You want to make sure the email hosting company you choose can support your growth and not have any issues. With Newton, you can have as many mailboxes as you need and can manage them with ease.
So you’ve picked a fantastic email hosting company who you can rely on and can grow with your business. And you are enjoying the managed services they provide. They take care of adding any mailboxes you need and configuring your mail experience. But, what if you have someone in your organization whose job is to manage employee emails?
To accomplish this, Newton offers management access to your company mail and can configure permissions based on your needs. They will be able to add new email accounts quickly and service any employee email needs. It’s the perfect balance between managed email hosting and self-service.
