Some rely on their local ISP to provide e-mail services, while others turn to Hotmail, Yahoo, or other global mail service providers. Hosting your mail server offers some excellent advantages, whether you need to support hundreds of users or just want to put in your mail server in a small office. Your utmost advantage of having your server is business branding.

But that’s about where the level of service ends! If you want features such as out-of-office replies, automatic responses, unlimited mailboxes, and mail forwarding, you need to take matters into your hands and configure your mail server.
