What is the cheapest enterprise grade Email available in 2017? — Zoho’s free email hosting
Since I started freelancing I have recommend Google Apps to my clients as way to keep their email separate from their web-hosting.
Splashing out £3 a month is a bargain individuals but can start to get pricey as you increase the number of accounts.
Zoho emerged as a strong competitor to GSuite when Google dropped it’s ‘free’ tier in 2012 and represents great value to anyone who wants a free email account that isn’t linked to their web-hosting.
Currently Zoho offers 5GB of space per user; with up to 50 users per account for free.
That is free as in beer.
Zoho has a solid web-mail interface, decent spam protection (if properly configured) and all the under the bonnet features you would expect from a enterprise level provider (SPF and DKIM records, administrative tools).
However, the reason for Zoho’s popularity is undoubtedly it price.
It is very difficult to find issues with a service as comprehensive as Zoho when it is free.
