    Storage of Vital Documents

    One other thing drdes, who is your email provider?

    You would be amazed how many important documents are attached to emails and it's easy to forget to download them.

    After last year, I do know.

    If you lose access to that mailbox, you don't just lose the ability to use that email address which is bad enough as it is.

    I've had an Outlook account from the very beginning of Hotmail (nearly 20 years).

    I must admit I used it as a bit of a document store too.

    That was one of the things I lost access too and it was very scary.

    If you are really concerned about email stability, security or continuity you could always host your own email. Bearing in mind that Yahoo in particular has been compromised in the past.

    You will need to register your own domain.com or domain.co.uk for as little as a £5 per year and then buy some hosting again this can be achieved for £3 per month and you now have and control your own email.

    You can then scale this up in the future to add aliases and employees along with creating your own backup solution should you have a critical failure all for around £60 per year.

    It always strikes me as odd that people are happy to spend vasts sums of money in their businesses on things they can see and touch but when it comes to data, email, websites etc they are more than hesitant to spend anything.

    Go Figure!

    Agreed Chris, and yes I;'m aware of the benefits but have never got round to it!

    After last year, I think I may well find the time this year.
