Common e-mail Q&A’s:

Q: What is the difference between POP3, IMAP4, and Microsoft Exchange?
A: Microsoft Exchange’s biggest advantage over older technologies, like POP and IMAP, is that your e-mail, calendar and contact information is the same on all devices you use to access it. This means mail sent from your mobile phone shows up in the Sent folder in Outlook or Entourage.

Q: What are the benefits of hosting my own e-mail service?
A: Hosting your own e-mail solution means you control its physical location. Hosting it on your own server is helpful for a variety of reasons:
Because outside vendors don’t need to be involved, hosting your own solution gives your IT service provider more control in tracking down and resolving issues quickly.
Inter-office e-mail does not consume your internet bandwidth so you receive less traffic on your internet connection from all the e-mails between employees
You’re able to back up and recover e-mail data on your own terms and in accordance with your own internal policies. This is particularly important for professional service businesses that must comply with industry and government regulations.
You can work with your IT service provider to create flexible e-mail policies, like how often people will archive, size of mailbox and so on, to best suit your specific business needs.
Your IT service provider can provide you with search results across all employees. For example, when you are searching for all email communications to/from a specific client to across all of your employees.

Q: How do I connect to my e-mail when I’m out of the office or on another computer?
A: With the correct set up, the latest versions of Microsoft Outlook and Entourage and all smartphone e-mail applications allow for secure connection to your e-mail from anywhere. If you don’t have access to your computer or mobile device, most e-mail systems also allow for browser- or Internet-based connections called web-mail.

Q: how can I ensure my e-mail is secure?
A: With the correct set up, the connection between your computer and mobile device should always be secure. All the e-mail technologies can leverage SSL, the same technology used to secure websites, like those used for online banking.

Q: Is there any way to reduce the amount of SPAM I receive?
