    There are no moronic answers when someone is daft enough to have posted in General surely

    I tried to find information however ran out of luck.

    I am starting in July and have 2 queries

    1. What is the good choice for a conference / video calling software for contractors and small companies? I am starting solo (some part-time contract role) and at the same time I am trying sell wider services in my core competency to a Client who can't afford my day-rates (and I may not have the bandwidth)

    2. I am have a friend who is building a website for me and asked me to consider a mail server however have no idea about UK market, I was looking for GSuite, do you have any reviews of GSuit or any other recommendations?

    Thanks
    Office 365.

    He is running a big company and building this for free and expecting some future business from my Client base or custom tool development.

    However Thanks for the idea, O365 sounds good and one-stop-for-all definitely.

    Thanks

    FTFY... OP will thank me later when they have to integrate to a CRM (Dynamics?).

    Hmmm, I struggle to see why anyone would want the overhead of running their own email server these days; particularly so for small start-ups.

    I currently use GSuite and it's fine. I opened my account back when it was free, so I don't really care too much if it has rough edges... not that I've noticed any TBH.

    I'd go with Office 365 these days if I were to do it again. Others will no doubt be along with differing opinions, but O365 will do everything that you need and will scale.

    Tell your friend to FRO and to stop costing you money that you don't need to spend.

    Both GSuit and O365 will allow you to brand your email with your own domain name and this will be completely separate from where you choose to host your website.

    HTH.

    PS: I've always found Slack to be a complete PITA TBH. Best avoided IMHO. No offence intended @blaster. Simplify your infrastructure and software landscape as much as possible... you'll thank me down the line when you may need to unpick it all.
