Server Fault is a question and answer site for professional system and network administrators. It's 100% free, no registration required.

Does anyone have any company recommendations for E-mail hosting? We have around 80-90 e-mail accounts. The problem I'm having is finding a decent priced host that has a decent amount of space. So far, the only company I have found is Fusemail.com. The rest of the companies I've looked into host exchange, so it gets kind of expensive.

Google Apps.

Standard edition (same as Gmail) is free, Premium costs 50$ per user/year. Although 50 users limit of free edition might be a problem if you have 90 users.

Here's comparison from wiki:

Standard Edition

  • Free
  • Same storage space as regular gmail.com accounts (currently 7.4GB)
  • Text ads mandatory
  • Limited to 50 Users

Premier Edition

  • 50 $USD / account / year
  • 25 GB space for e-mail
  • Text ads optional
  • Integrated Postini "security, compliance, policy management, and message recovery services"
  • Conference room/resource scheduling
  • 99.9% e-mail uptime guarantee
  • APIs for Single Sign On, etc.
  • 24/7 phone support
  • 3rd party applications and services
  • Google Video (Private company version of Youtube.)

Wow, I didn't know how fast I was going to get a reply. I will look into google apps. –  Jacob May 27 '09 at 14:11

Runbox are pretty efficient. I've used them for a number of years in addition to Google apps, and I've always found them to be more available, much quicker at resolving issues (never been down), and you get free webhosting.

I've found it to be worth the price.

I like the way Google Apps works, but I've found it to be a bit too non-standard in many ways, although, free is free for basic use, I'd rather pay and have guaranteed support.

In several years of use I never an so much as a minutes outage, and their web-hosting (a free add-on) never dropped once either. –  Alex Nov 13 '09 at 15:52
