What do you like best?
Amazon WorkMail is a great alternative for a business that needs scalable email without all of the bells and whistles. It is particularly useful if you are already using Amazon WorkSpaces or WorkDocs.
Amazon WorkMail works with all major mobile devices and operating systems that support the Exchange ActiveSync protocol, including the Apple iPad, Apple iPhone, Amazon Kindle Fire, Android, Windows Phone, and BlackBerry 10. You can access Amazon WorkMail from Microsoft Outlook on Windows. You must have a valid Microsoft Outlook license to use it with Amazon WorkMail,
What do you dislike?
If you are not using AWS for something else that are incremental costs to using WorkMail. In addition, Amazon WorkMail requires one directory (you're limited to two AWS Directory Service directories per region) and one VPC (you're limited to a total of 5 VPCs per AWS region)
Recommendations to others considering the product
If you are on AWS with something else already, and don't have G Suite or O365 this is a perfectly good alternative. Amazon WorkMail and Amazon WorkDocs can also be purchased together for $6 per user per month, when used in the same region
