In the beginning, corporate email communication in companies began with mailboxes that could contain approximately 50MB of messages. Email was downloaded in POP3 on the only corporate computer that could connect to the Internet via a 56K modem.
Throughout time, email communication came to replace paper mail and fax, becoming the main means of communication between companies and customers, suppliers and collaborators, as we experience today.
Email accounts obviously had to contain a higher number of messages. Those first 50MB seemed a lot, if compared with the 1.44MB floppy disks that they substituted. Yet, they started to increasingly feel narrow. Their storage capability had to grow, thus developers gradually increased their storage size. 100MB became 1GB, became 8GB, until nowadays, where companies need even 100GB mailboxes!
I shall avoid the usual comparison that “100GB correspond to N-thousand floppy disks which, if placed one on top of the other, could go around Earth …“
Finding an email hosting provider willing to provide a 100GB mailbox isn’t that simple. In fact, such a large mailbox risks being very slow in everyday use and even many email clients including Microsoft Outlook may have problems managing it or not managing it at all.
With such large capacity, Webmail is often recommended as there is no waiting time for the email cloud to initiate itself and synchronize. Plus, it is not necessary to archive messages locally.
Qboxmail is a professional email service provider for businesses and resellers that already offers 50GB mailboxes. But we wanted to go the extra mile, so we recently 100GB webmail available for customers using the Enterprise plan. This means that it’s now possible to activate, within your domain, email accounts of up to 100GB storage capacity.
This feature offers you the possibility to activate additional space up to 100GB only on the mailboxes where it is actually needed, without the need to expand all mailboxes of a domain. This way, you only pay more for that specific mailbox that needs the extra space.
Many other suppliers, on the other hand, require you to activate all the email accounts of a 50GB or 100GB domain, thus forcing you to pay for additional space even on accounts where this is not necessary.
