Why are you wanting to change your email platform?
Often we find clients wanting to embark on costly email platform upgrades because they were told “it’s something they should do”, or for a reason that isn’t worthy. Often people make a change because they think upgrading from system X to system Y is going to get them some features that “don’t work with system X”, however – they just need some small changes for system X to provide said feature.
Often businesses move from IMAP mailboxes to Microsoft 365 or Google Workspace because they want to be better integrated. This can be true, but unless you’re a large enterprise that works on one of these platforms – often with a bit of adjustment your IMAP mailboxes will work just fine with them and integrate nicely.
We’re sometimes told “we want to move to Microsoft 365 so that we can check our email from anywhere!”, well you can do that using IMAP mailboxes or Google Workspace… or just about any email service.
There are so many other “non-reasons” we hear for changing your email platform. We recommend getting expert advice before making such a change.
