Email is a critical means of communications for most small firms and organizations. Bare-bones email setups from years past may not be adequate to enable you and your staff the access needed from multiple devices — Office and home PCs, cell phones, etc.
Also, the need to protect the supporting systems from interruption due to system failures, spam, virii and other malware, etc., and to insure that you can access or restore every message as needed, is beyond the scope of all but the most comprehensively planned and supported systems.
There are no ‘silver bullets’ here.
