Based on the Exchange 2010 or 2013 platform the system offers a full corporate email system to small businesses and individuals without the initial and ongoing costs of maintaining your own exchange server.
How the Service Works
The hosted exchange service is a fully integrated system for your email, calendar, contacts, tasks and notes. All of your data is stored on the exchange server which is located in a UK data centre and is fully managed and supported 24/7.
Any computer, smart phone or tablet that the email account is configured on synchronises with the server; what this means is that if you are away from your computer and you send an email from your smart phone, when you get back to your computer the email that you sent will also be in the sent items on the computer. Another example, if you are checking your email on your tablet and delete or read a couple of emails, then when you look at the email on your computer or smart phone, those same emails will either show as deleted or read.
The system is ideal for anyone who has their email on multiple devices and wants the convenience of synchronised email, calendars, contact, tasks and notes.
With each mailbox you get:
› 50GB Mailbox
› Outlook Web App
› Mobile Email 'push' Technology
› Shared Calendars and Contacts
› 10 Email Aliases
› Anti-Spam and Anti-Virus Scanning
What you Need
To use the service on a Windows computer or laptop you can use either the Outlook Web App or you will need Microsoft Outlook 2010, 2013 or 2016.
The system is compatible with Mac Mail and also Outlook for Mac 2011 or 2016.
Smart phones and Tablets
iPhones and iPads - the system is fully compatible with iPhones and iPads running ios 6 or higher. iPhones and iPads will also synchronise your Notes and Tasks.
Android and Blackberry Smart phones and Tablets - devices running Android version 4 or higher, or Blackberry version 10 or higher are compatible with the system for email, contacts and calendar synchronisation.
What the Service Costs
The cost for the service is £5.30 per month per mailbox.
For example, if you have three email addresses, info@yourdomain, sales@yourdomain and support@yourdomain and you want to be able to send and receive email for all three addresses then this would be three mailboxes, costing £15.00 per month.
However, if the main email address used is info@ and you are happy to send all email from the info@ address then the sales@ and support@ email addresses can be setup as aliases of info@. This means that any email sent to sales@ and support@ will be delivered to info@, but when you reply to the email it will be returned to the sender from the info@ email address; therefore the cost would be £5.00 per month as there is only one mailbox.
If you find that the anti-virus and anti-spam service which is included as standard is not accurate enough for you then we would recommend adding on the Advanced Email Filtering service
All prices are per mailbox, per month, plus VAT. The service can be paid for on a monthly, quarterly, biannually and yearly.
