My 0,02€, when you use clouded services you have industrial services, so don't even expect having nice QOS or fixed stupid issues. 
Remember of postmaster that has been crazy with bloody hotmail services that loosed mail or even don't be able to have their mail arrived on time.

If mail is really important : use dedicated servers like a Zimbra for example on your office or even on a hoster company.
It can be cheaper than O365 or other and gets better services (and debug).

Now using "clowd" services is a choice and you should pay issues with them.

IP has the ability to have the possiblity to host yourself your services (eg an IP can be a client or a server), so why continue to centralize services ? SDSL or Fiber access are going to be cheap... So use them.
