Browser Based Email vs Application Based Email Clients

What is the Best Email Software for Your Business

Are you looking for the best email programs or apps for your business?
Choosing the right application can be a daunting task

The ability to safeguard crucial business data should be a priority for all businesses. And managing emails is more important today than ever before. Email remains the primary method of communication between businesses, but there are a number of different ways in which emails can be used and stored

What is Email Software?

An application that is designed to send, receive, and manage emails. Businesses can manage multiple email accounts within a unified inbox. They allow for more control over user data. Only you control your emails. Third parties have no access to them unless you purposefully (or accidentally) allow it. The email clients are easy to use and businesses can manage both emails and your contacts. Multiple email accounts can be managed in a single inbox. You have full control over emails protecting sensitive business data and files. Accessed from anywhere from any device. Most all email software has integrations with third-party apps and email collaboration tools such as calendars, address books, to-do lists, Customer Relationship Management (CRM), etc. Automated responses, scheduling, snoozing, templates, in-line replies, attachment search, contact management and more

What is Web Based Email Client

An email system in which a user can access their emails via a browser on any computer or device that is connected to the Internet. You do not need to download any software or even have a Server to collect email from, as everything is store online by the Web App Provider. The most popular examples of these are Gmail, Microsoft’s Outlook, Yahoo Mail. But this means the Provider has control over your data, and some companies openly acknowledge that they will scan private emails at least for marketing purposes. For this reason we suggest you stay away from those companies that do offer free email. When a business use a email such as "gmail" it looks unprofessional. They should use a program or client they can associate with their Domain Name
