Since i am used to Google G Suite, it feel little hard for me to use.

One thing i noticed is when i sent email, i used to type recipient email address, press tab, enter subject, tag again, type message. This is the workflow i am used to in Google G Suite. When i try same in Amazon Workmail, it did not work because there are too many elements on the compose email screen and i have to press TAB multiple times to get into subject or body field.

Amazon Workmail Compose

All the marked elements here force you to press TAB. After enter recipient, you need to press TAB 3 times to get into subject field, again TAB 4 times before you can start wring the message.

To get to compose, you need to click “New Item” then select “New email” from drop down menu. That is lot of wasted time on a Mail application where primary purpose is to sent and receive emails. It will be better to have a “Compose” or “New email” button like most other email providers, make easy for users.

I don’t think i can compare it with Google G Suite as it come with much more features like Google Drive, Documents and many more. But for business use, many of these may not required, it depends on the business.
