Hosted email – which is right for you?

Company News/ 03rd Aug 2015/Chris James

We offer a number of hosted email solutions including our email only hosting packages, Google Apps for Work and hosted Exchange.  There is no “one size fits all” solution and the best solution for you will depend on what features you require from your email.

Clook Hosted Email


If you are happy with the email features provided in regular cPanel accounts but want more space and a better price per GB of space for a single email domain these are the packages for you.

There is no mailbox limit on these packages and you can create as many email users as you wish with the limiting factor being the package space/quota.  All of the usual email features are available such as forwarders, filters, webmail, POP and Imap access.  This is all managed within the familiar cPanel control panel.

Google Apps for Work


If you prefer the Google web based interface you may prefer to use Google Apps for Work.

Those with administration permissions can manage the organisation account online by setting up users and configuring detailed settings and privileges.  As well as a very powerful email system, these packages come with all of the other Google Apps such as Drive, Contacts, Calendar, Docs and more.  Combine this with mobile device integration and we have a very robust system that many traditional Exchange users have been switching to.

Google Apps for Work is billed on a “per user” basis with each user having their own quota limits.  Additional domains can be created within the organisation to allow for email based on more than one domain name.

Hosted Exchange

BannerAd_c_Exchange_Cyan300If you use Microsoft Outlook and require the tight integration of the various elements you may wish to look at a hosted Exchange solution.  This allows you to use the contacts, tasks, calendar and notes and keep everything in sync with the Exchange server and all connected devices.

This service comes with a powerful online interface that looks and feels very much like Outlook with all of the collaboration features required by some organisations.

Administrators can manage users and privileges using an online management.  Billing is handled on a per mailbox basis with each mailbox having it’s own space limit.


If still unsure of which package is best for you please see our Hosted Email web page or contact us to discuss further.
