Which are SMBs email providers?

by Daniel_SMB / July 15, 2013 9:27 PM PDT

Hello everyone,

I am a student finishing my studies in business administration and I would need soome help from you: my masters thesis is about email providers of SMBs and the TCO analysis.

Do anyone know where I can find some statistics about which email provider SMBs use. The best paper I have right now is the IT landscape for SMBs from spiceworks but I would need something more accurate.

If you don't know any studies about the subject, it would be extremely nice of you to answer these 4 questions:

1/ How many employees are there in your company?

2/ What's your email provider? (Google, MS Exchange, Thunderbird....)

3/ Do you know how much cost the licenses from this email provider?

4/ Would you be able to make an estimate of the Total Cost of Ownership of your current email provider?

Of course if you have any comment that could help me I would be very happy to read it.

Thanks a lot in advance and have a nice day.
