Using a hosted email service means that the burden of maintaining and securing the email server is not yours but the provider's. You can concentrate on your business while the expert at email hosting concentrates on what they do best.

Providers to consider are Microsoft OfficeLive (their premium offering), Google Apps, BlueTie, MI8 webmail.us and many others.
