Corporate e-mail is considered one the most vital means of business communication in today’s Internet. So it is vital to ensure its smooth functioning. First let’s determine the major advantages of using the corporate emails for business.
There are two main ways to organize corporate mail: using your own server for accepting/sending emails and using a third-party service. Both of these methods have pluses and minuses, but since the major criterion is reliability, let’s consider the use of the third-party service.
The best solutions for organizing corporate mail are provided by two popular search engines – “Mail for a domain” from Yandex and Google Apps for Business from Google. Both services work in the similar way. The major steps: registration of the main account, the MX-records configuration, creation and management of the corporate mailboxes via special interface.
Both platforms are reliable, but Yandex is completely free and supports up to 1000 mailboxes (with the ability to expand if necessary), a nice interface and a simple API. The corporate mail configured by Google is not free. Google only gives a trial period of 14 days to test it for free.
The further steps are similar for any system:
If the Yandex or other email service interface does not suit you, you can bind your corporate mail to the gmail account both for sending and receiving. To do this, you need to set up your gmail account: on the “accounts and import” tab you need to configure sending and collecting emails from other boxes.
The following parameters should be used to configure the sending of emails: username and password (login and password from email on Yandex/other service), use a third-party server for sending, smtp.yandex.ru server, port 465, enable ssl. To collect emails: provide login and password from the Yandex/other mailbox, server pop.yandex.ru, port 995, ssl is enabled. After these simple actions you have a “powerful” Gmail interface and reliability of Yandex/alternative service.
See the G Suite pricing for setting up the corporate email from Google. Try the 14-day free version of G Suite or contact the sales department. By the end of the trial period, you will be able to pay by credit card. In some countries, you can also set up automatic payments from a bank account (direct debit).
What is the difference between the flexible plan and the annual plan?
Flexible plan allows you to add and remove users at any time. The fee is charged only for the services you were using, and invoices are issued monthly.
