They should try out https://www.squadmail.com/ which lets you share synchronized email folders with others. Instead of CCing your entire team on each and every email, you can simply drag & drop an email to a shared folder and it'll show up in the same place in your collaborators' inbox.

The enormous effort it took for the Army to migrate more than 1.4 million email users to DISA's cloud will generate greater benefits. The Army is not only in a better position for future IT enhancements, it is in a better position to move more of its IT operations into a cloud-based platform. That's big.

re: Army Makes Cloud Email Migration
I remember when former Army G6 CIO Jeff Sorenson set in motion efforts to give soldiers and Army civilians a single email/calendar/contact account, accessible anywhere in the world. Most folks would marvel at how the Army failed to have what all of us in civilian life take for granted today in the way of a single email. But then most people don't appreciate what it takes to support a workforce on the move all over the globe facing austere conditions, spotty satellite coverage, and years of legacy investments and cultural traditions that have no rival. So Mike Krieger and the folks at DISA deserve a lot of credit for successfully dragging this massive project over a boot camp worthy obstacle course to completion.
