When Google does it for you!

For a small company starting out, there are a number of very good reasons why, it is wise to use existing Google infrastructure to meet your e-mail requirements.

It is well documented that 70% of all email is now spam/malware? This is an insidious problem and causes damage to hardware, loss of productivity, breaches in information security, fraud and theft.

The problem from an anti-spam management policy is that if you are too aggressive with respect to the measures you put in place, you get too many false positives – i.e. you start blocking legitimate email. The problem will therefore never go away as spammers try to work cleverly around spam protection and technology companies in turn, try and defeat the spam artists.

This is one of the main reasons why I would recommend that you use gmail (Google mail). Although gmail is not infallible, I get far less spam to my personal gmail account, and pay nothing for this service.

Just some food for thought .......
