Overall Satisfaction with AppRiver

We're using AppRiver across our entire organization, for spam filtering, e-mail, and Microsoft Office licensing. We had a problematic on-premise Exchange server that needed to be retired, and our former spam filtering service wasn't accurate enough, so moving to AppRiver addressed both of these issues.
  • Easy user management
  • Excellent customer support
  • Smooth migration from on-premise to cloud services
  • Sometimes the Microsoft Office licensing isn't in sync with Microsoft
  • Reduced overhead of managing an on-premise server
  • Mitigated a single point of failure risk of an on-premise server
Every incident we've needed support with, AppRiver has been able to successfully circumvent any issues we experienced.
Initially we were using Microsoft Office 365 for licensing, an on-premise Exchange server for e-mail, and The E-mail Laundry for spam filtering. After months of unsuccessful attempts to migrate our e-mail to Office 365, AppRiver was the only solution that successfully performed the migration, had a better anti-spam solution, and had support throughout the process.
AppRiver is well suited for small to mid-sized companies. In these scenarios, it doesn't make sense to have an on-premise server. Utilizing AppRiver to migrate to the cloud, add spam filtering, manage licensing, and having tech support above and beyond going to Microsoft is perfectly suited in these scenarios and works extremely well.

Of course, large enterprises will still want an infrastructure of their own on-premise Exchange servers.
