Google apps is seriously overpriced but what is wrong with free zoho?
I recall a couple of years ago thinking zoho was lacking various important features but when I looked again yesterday it seemed much improved.
For example it now has catch-all, and scripted use of SMTP can now deposit a copy of the sent email in 'sent'.
Main limitation is 5GB per user, 25 users, 1 domain per free account.
If anyone knows of any serious shortcomings I'd appreciate it if they could say.
There do seem to be some points of fragility. For example, if an auto-forward fails 10 times running, the auto-forward is disabled.
And who knows if the spam filter is any good?
But I think it's worth mentioning that apparently one can turn off the spam filter altogether (which is something one cannot do in google apps).
