    Blog article has a full step by step getting started guide for Amazon WorkMail too :)

    Still trying to find technical info on their email sending limits etc. But Amazon WorkMail uses Amazon SES for sending part of email delivery so could be same limits as Amazon SES outlined at Limits in Amazon SES - Amazon Simple Email Service ?

    Re-reading FAQ - darn Amazon WorkMail doesn't support pop3 and imap clients !!! So that rules it out for me !

    Looks like Outlook or web only access

    Workmail is expensive @ $4 per user.

    I was looking to move from Protonmail, but then I checked out the prices at other places. On protonmail.com visionary level I get 6 users, 20GB of storage, 50 Addresses (protonmail / custom) and 10 custom domains. If I pay annually it's $24 per month. If I pay monthly it's $30 a month.

    maybe it's the way you worded it but protonmail at 6 users for 24/month annual is 24/6 = 4/month which is same as Workmail ???

    Think that workmail is not that expensive, given the fsct that it is business email.
    Although Gmail and office 365 is more bang for bucks. In my view.

    At most places, 1 user = 1 domain. I get 10 at PM. But I get your point.

    I'm just trying to find the cheapest alternative. Honestly, I just want something with POP and I'll go the desktop route.

    Looks like Namecheap is one of the cheapest @ around 90 cents per month per mailbox (9.95 per year).

    Thinking G Suite might be the best for me.

    Yup mentioned at Email - Free @yourdomain.com Email Accounts & Alternatives Google App/GSuite supports domain aliases so you can have multiple domains as secondary to primary domain so user @ domainprimary.com will have alias as user @ domainsecondary.com going to same primary account. I do this for alot of my Google GSuite domains :)

    can be assessed separately for each situation, certain data (medical data etc.) I prefer not to go over a G wire. For example.
