It’s unlikely of course, but it can happen.
Like any other kind of complicated technology, internet connections and email servers can, as we know, have problems from time to time. And if either of them do go down, you won’t be able to send or receive emails until they’ve been fixed.
So if running your business absolutely depends on email it’s worth thinking about how you can protect your business from events that could lead to loss of business or angry customers.
This is where ‘email continuity’ services can help. The way they work is very simple:
Of course a service like this costs money. How much depends on the number of email addresses you have. For a business with ten people you’d be looking at something like £50 to £60 per month. And remember, this service scans all your emails for viruses and spam as well.
So what do you think? Have you ever had a problem with email where this kind of system might have helped?
