My office has computers and we want e-mail addresses for our business. What should I be aware of?
You must first purchase a domain name for your business (such as robkraft.org). You can then either host your own e-mail server, or you can have another business host this service for you.
If you host your own e-mail server, you will need to open port 25 on your router to allow SMTP traffic to come in so you can send and receive e-mails. If you want your employees to check their e-mail at home through the web, you will either need a web interface to your e-mail server (port 80 on the router), or you will need an e-mail server that allows POP3 access (and open port 110 on the router).
If you have another business host it for you, they will probably allow you to have web access to the e-mail server, or you can have POP3 access.
