Anyone use/know of any email and file sharing web apps?

I'm looking for a web app that's like an intranet/email client type thing. A place where I can make a company account and employees can share files, as well as access their company email, all in one place.

Anyone know of anything?

thanks!

Why do they need to access email and be able to share files within the same app?

Use gmail to integrate their current email system and put it all on a website with a file sharing app.

Or have them use google drive. Pretty sure they offer business plans.

Because it's easier.

Good idea, but it needs to be simpler. This needs to be something I can (non-intrusively) set up for others, or something a technologically inept person can do himself.

I really need something where a user just adds his email (or I add it for him, set servers, etc.), and everything is right there already. I'd have to think that some sort of employee management software like this or employee collaboration software like this exists.

I'm toying with just building something using Mail Gun.

I think someone would probably be able to make a better suggestion if they knew what kind of company we are talking about here, how many employees there are, and what kind of file sharing and security is needed.

Based on what I know, Google Apps for Business sounds like a good fit. They offer a free trial so maybe you can just toy around with it and see if it fits your needs.

It's not going to get much simpler than integrating with google. If you do it that way, they login and everything they need is right there in front of them.

And with Google your up-time is going to be better than almost anything else (if not everything else).

I don't think that information is really relevant other than determining the amount of disk space and bandwidth, which is usually variable in different pricing tiers for paid services.
Software would A) allow users to check mail and respond to mail (and all the other jazz, signatures, forwarding, etc. etc.), and B) files could be shared (documents primarily).

And Google Apps for Businesses looks very decent, but still, too complicated for 70-year-olds. I need bare bones simple, a mail client with a file-sharing area. No frills to confuse fogies.

Google is simple to us because we are versed with all the tools Google has to offer and they seem plain to us. I need to eliminate all the unnecessary tools. If Google had a way to customize its business dashboards to get rid of certain features, maybe that could be something I'd look into.

You can customize the dashboard. I assume there's a way such that they login and their email and storage is right in front of them without any other confusing stuff around.
