Email Market in Germany

The business market in Germany has always been fascinating to me — Email is no different. The main providers in the German Email Market: Deutsche Telekom & United Internet AG (WEB.DE, GMX, Freenet.de, Strato)  launched “E-mail made in Germany” initiatives in 2013 and those efforts have not been in vain.

Per a study by Convios Consulting GmbH around 67% of German Internet users have their main email inbox provided by a German Provider. Das ist gut!

GMX (25.3%), WEB.DE (23.9%), Gmail (14.8%), Outlook (9.3%), T-Online (8.4%), 1&1 (3.6%), Freenet (2.5%)

The Global Email Market

The email market keeps growing at a steady pace and will reach nearly 5 billion users by 2024.

It was in October of 2018 that Gmail announced it had reached 1.5 billion active accounts: https://twitter.com/gmail/status/1055806807174725633

The worldwide email user market also follows suit. According to the Radicati Group, email is expected to grow to 4.4 billion unique users by 2024. 

Email accounts are also expected to reach 1.86 accounts per person. I, for one, already have five (two business and three personal).

What is the difference between ShuttleCloud integrated within Gmail and the ShuttleCloud G Suite Marketplace Tool?

Depending on what your final goal is, you will be better off using 1. ShuttleCloud’s integration within Gmail or 2. the ShuttleCloud Migration Tool in the G Suite Marketplace.

1. If what you want is to import mail and/or contacts to your Gmail or G Suite account from a prior webmail provider such as Hotmail or Yahoo then the ShuttleCloud app within Gmail is the best option for you!

Your users will be able to complete their migrations following the steps in this article: https://help.shuttlecloud.com/how-do-i-import-email-from-another-email-account-into-a-gmail/ or if you prefer a video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qEeorOjbbNU&t=

2. If, on the other hand, what you want to do is import emails to your G Suite account from a business email provider such as G Suite, Office 365, or others, then the ShuttleCloud Migration Tool in the G Suite Marketplace App is what you are looking for! This option includes bulk import and dedicated support.

You may install it following these steps: https://support.shuttlecloud.com/article/362-how-to-install-the-shuttlecloud-migration-app or if you prefer a video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X02g-bKkR7U

ShuttleCloud integrated within Gmail:
– It’s a free service provided by Gmail.
– User-driven migration within the Gmail interface.
– Migrates from most consumer email systems (e.g., Yahoo, Gmail, Outlook, AOL, etc.).
– G Suite admins can activate the service for end-user-driven migrations within Gmail: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=R1o5X7d0mWY&t=7s
– Includes email forwarding and contacts import capabilities.

ShuttleCloud G Suite Marketplace app

– Includes dedicated support and advice from G Suite Experts.
– Admin-driven or user-driven from a separate interface to Gmail’s UI. (email us about admin-driven bulk migrations)
