Enterprise mailbox is a mailbox ending with the company's own domain name. As an important tool for internal and external communication, it plays an increasingly important role in daily business management and activities. Enterprise mailboxes can not only reflect the company’s brand and image, but also facilitate the unified management of mailboxes and ensure the security and stability of corporate contacts.
Common Enterprise mailbox types are as below:
1. Hosted enterprise mailbox
It is a professional enterprise mailbox product. Major operators (such as Google) deploy the mailboxes leased by customers in the same place for centralized management, with high security, high function scalability, and the strongest stability. It is not restricted by geographical access, and does not need to be maintained by the enterprise itself, but it must be charged annually according to the number of users and capacity. (Applicable to all companies)
2. Self-built enterprise mailbox
The enterprise purchases the corresponding software and hardware, and deploys and pipelines within the enterprise. The purchase cost is relatively low. The software is charged at one time according to the number of users, but the mailbox capacity and access speed are great affected by hardware and the network environment. It is difficult to maintain. If the network environment does not do two-line backup, it will be more difficult for other operators to access the network (applicable to all enterprises)
3. Gift-type corporate mailbox
An email system with corporate mailbox characteristics presented to users by virtual hosting or network space service providers when companies rent domain names and website space. It has poor stability, general security, small capacity, and few users and no after-sales service. (Applicable to micro-enterprises)
With the intensification of market competition, the use of advanced information technology for management and operation, thereby improving efficiency, reducing costs, and enhancing the core competitiveness of enterprises is the only way for enterprise development. For small and medium-sized enterprises, how to spend less and actually solve the most basic application requirements is the fundamental problem, so TerraMaster NAS is also a good choice.
