If you don’t want to deal with the hassle of managing their own e-mail server or hiring an administrator to manage their email servers and the security that comes along with it.
So what are the disadvantages? Like with everything else, the quality of your Email service will depend on the provider. If your e-mail goes down, you will have to rely on the Service provider to restore it, and if it happens in the middle of the night or on a weekend, response times can be slower. Security is another concern. Whenever you have your critical business data stored by a third-party provider you lose control over how that data is being protected.
Many companies find that the benefits of outsourcing their e-mail service outweigh these risks, but some prefer to host their e-mail in-house. If you have a tech-savvy firm, you may decide to choose this option.
