Hosted email providers: alternatives to Gmail and O365

Can  anyone recommend an email hosting provider that can provide @mycompany.com email addresses that
is NOT Office 365 or GSuite?

Key feature require is a good search facility, reliability (of course) and bonus points if European-based.

Service can be free or paid-for. I know there are loads of niche encrypted email services now but service does not have to be of the ultra-super-duper secure variety.

All suggestions welcome?

What is it you do not like about O365 or GSuite?  

You can get email hosting just about anywhere but the biggest advantage I have found with either O365 or Gsuite is spam control.  I used to host email on my shared servers a long time ago and even paid for some anti spam software and gave up because it was too much of a headache. The advantage of course is you can have unlimited email accounts but the amount of spam and dealing with deliverability issues was not worth the effort.

Otherwise, just about any hosting service will be able to handle email and most do as part of their offerings.

Well, I just need a totally separate email account connected to a new email domain for billing.

I already use Gmail and Outlook 365 for three separate business entities.

I now need something totally separate. This also saves any possible confusion of using wrong email account for sending invoices etc. And I know  Gmail offers a fantastic spam-filtering but I was just wondering if there was a viable cloud-hosted alternative?

both gmail and o365 allow you to create a new tenant.  Each tenant can have several domains.
Each tenant will have an overall system administrator. Each Domain can have in addition to the tenant administrator a domain administrator.

If you want to use an other service than google or microsoft I can recommend you the service of https://www.1and1.com/

This is a very big european company with good spam control too.

I hope this helps.

These responses are truly mind-expanding as to what one can do with GSuite!

I will look at these more closely and report back decision.

Thanks guys.

I've taken into account spam filtering, benefits of centralised administration, cost and finally plumped for adding a new domain under my existing GSuite account - something I never knew you could even do.

Thank you everyone again.
