It is unbelievably low cost. It costs a lot less compared to similar products from big names such as Microsoft and IBM. The license is perpetual meaning that you are not forced to pay any renewal fees. Compared to cloud-based email solution, it is much cheaper to run in the longer term.
Pricing is in Ringgit Malaysia, therefore it is not subject to currency fluctuation (which affects many of the cloud-based solutions).
It also does not need to run on the server edition of Windows. The desktop versions (such as Windows 10) are also supported. Even if you run on Windows Server, you do not have to purchase the expensive Client Access License (CAL). It also does not need any special database software such as Microsoft SQL Server.
The recent disclosures by governmental whistleblowers expose a worrying reality: many email systems hosted by third parties are pried upon by various agencies. The emails are intercepted and accessed without the users’ knowledge.
There is also the risk of emails being accessed by cyber criminals.
By having your own on-premise email server running MailNow!, you can take control of your organization’s emails again. You determine how the emails are stored, where they are stored and who have access to them.
