This is important to fight spammers and phishing/spoofing (email identity forgery).
- The 'owner' of your email account controls which external servers can originate email from your email address. The owner is the company between the @ and dot.
- If you have a free personal email from Google, or Hotmail, or AOL, or even Comcast, SBC Global, or Verizon, etc - they control which external servers can send email on your behalf - and they don't allow it. Not on their free personal email plans.
- In order to have your business group email delivered, it must come from a domain that you own or control.
Using a business email account has always been beneficial (branding, trusted source, etc), but now it is required for organizations using commercial email due to a new standard called DMARC (for details, see www.dmarc.org).
Since you are using Foundation Tennis, you already have a domain that you control. If you do not have email boxes @ that domain, we can help you.
Email plans cost money no matter who you buy them from. Pricing ranges from $5/month/mailbox from Google, to $9.95/month/mailbox for Microsoft. Foundation Tennis offers hosted Smartermail for $2/month/mailbox.
The Foundation Tennis system and Security Package ensure your business email is verified technically, helping with delivery to the inbox and preventing spammers and identity forgery.
