To stay connected and interact with global peers, friends, co-workers, and corporate employees, use email communication technology to perform business with customers and communicate with each other globally. Emails are the best and simplest way of cyber communication. Email is often the first thing we do when entering the office as well as the last thing we do when going to bed. With Cloud-based services providing email servers and infrastructure hosted over the Internet, Security assumes a significantly high level of priority in today’s cyber world. This chapter reviews the academic literature published on security challenges faced by Email Infrastructure over Cloud, discusses the limitations of Email protocols, and compares using cloud-based email infrastructures and on-premises email servers.

Keywords: Email Infrastructure, Email Cloud Service, Exchange Server, SMTP, POP3, IMAP.
