Today I received an email from Amazon about their new mail service call Amazon Workmail. Going through the posts online and on the Amazon website it seems to be a direct competitor to Office365/Exchange and Gmail. Interesting highlight is that it will work with Outlook out of the box and also you can choose where to have your data hosted. I'm assuming this means I can choose to have my mail hosted overseas (or region in Amazon talk) if I choose. Interesting concept and not something I have seen before. You can also choose to use your own encryption keys to store you mail. That is very interesting indeed.
Priced at $4 per month is a great price point if it works. Include Zocalo and it's $6 per month total. That is cheap. Zocalo is basically their version of Dropbox, Box or Anchor if you will. I have tested and works ok. Interesting features if using Amazon Workspaces.
