My Experience with IONOS (1&1) Email System

When I originally setup my business I purchased the domain name and webhosting space with IONOS (1&1). I created a WordPress website and setup an email address through the control panel of IONOS’s website. It was easy to setup both of these features and everything worked well.

I setup the email account in Outlook as I prefer Outlook for managing my emails compared to other programs such as Thunderbird or the online webmail systems that IONOS provided.

If the prospect of an email ending up in your recipients junk mailbox worries you then you need to move to Microsoft Exchange Online

Everything with the website was working well and I thought the emails were also working well. Customers were emailing me and I was emailing them back. I was winning business and life was good, as they say. But after awhile I noticed a few strange things. I would email a customer who I knew would reply but they didn’t reply. I would then phone the customer up and ask them if they got my email and they said no. When I asked them to check their spam folder they found my email.

What was even stranger was sometimes customers would receive an email from me and the next day it would go straight to their junk folder. At this point I knew I had to find an alternative solution. These lost emails were costing me business. How many other customers had thought to themselves that I had not bothered to reply when in fact the email I sent was probably sitting in their spam/junk folder.

Microsoft 365 Exchange Online

I did a lot of research and decided that Microsoft 365 Exchange Online would provide me with the solution I needed. Exchange Online is the service that handles your emails. Whilst you may have your emails setup in Outlook on your computer and your phone it is Exchange Online that handles the delivery off incoming and outgoing emails. It also handles your address book and calendar.

It's a cloud based service which means all your emails are also stored in the cloud. This is great because it enables you to keep all your devices (laptops, phones, iPads etc) all synchronised.

As well as emails, it also includes contacts and calendars. You'll never miss another important meeting and you'll always have that important contacts email address and telephone number at hand.


Advantages of moving to Microsoft 365 Exchange Online

Less spam

Reliable email delivery

Large 50GB mailbox

Synchronised calendar and contacts

Never miss an email or an appointment again

How much does Microsoft Exchange Online cost?

Microsoft Exchange Online costs £3+VAT per month per email address. If you need Microsoft Teams as well then upgrade to Microsoft 365 Business Basic for £3.80 +VAT per month.

You can also setup alias emails which will automatically forward to the main email address. For example you might have robert.smith@yourcompany.co.uk but you can also setup an alias of sales@yourcompany.co.uk which automatically forwards to robert.smith@yourcompany.co.uk. You get the advantage of another email address without the extra cost.

What about my website, does this need to be moved as well?

Whoever is hosting your website can continue to host your website. I still have my IONOS webhosting account which is used to host my domain name and my website. But all emails now go through Microsoft 365.

This is achieved by changing DNS records in the IONOS control panel. Microsoft 365 have an excellent wizard to help you with the process of updating your DNS records.


I usually reply to online enquiries within a few hours so if you haven't had a reply within 24 hours please check your spam box.
