Microsoft's current email solution means that any small to medium business (SME) can have a Microsoft Exchange 2003 server, something which only a short time ago cost big bucks and was out of reach to businesses who could not justify the cost. Now any business can do it.
How? The Exchange server is hosted online and serves many of our customers, all with their own secure and completely discrete server space. So there are none of the costs involved in buying, setting up and maintaining your own server. All you pay for is the number of mailboxes you need, which can be modified as your requirements change.
What can you do with Exchange 2003 and a free licensed Outlook 2003 for every mailbox? Each mailbox has 1 Gigabyte (1,000 Megabytes!) of mail storage so even your largest documents and attachments will be available whenever and wherever you require them. Outlook's Shared address books & calendars keep all your staff in the loop, whether on-site or off-site. Spam & virus filtering will allow them to get on with their jobs without wasting time sorting junk from real. They can securely access their email and shared information anywhere in the world from any web-connected computer or suitable mobile phone or pocket PC.
This is such a good efficiency tool that even a partnership of 2 people would find it essential.
If you're not convinced already, imagine a situation where your laptop or PC is lost, stolen, damaged by fire or flood, or your bags go to Parma instead of Palma. Isn't it reassuring to know that all your mailbox data is still safely stored on a secure server in the UK and that you can still access it and send & receive emails whether you're at home or anywhere else in the world with an internet connection?
Exchange 2003 has so many features they can't all be listed here, but here's the things you will find useful, even if you're not sure what they are! Outlook Web Access (OWA) - Outlook Mobile Access (OMA) - ActiveSync with Pocket Outlook - Roaming SMTP, use from any desk - Exchange access with RPC over HTTP - Exchange access RPC/MAPI over VPN etc, etc.Contact us for further details.
