    Apparently our school is not allowed to use Google apps due to the fact that the data could be stored on a data centre abroad, and allegedly this stops us under data protection. Is this correct?

    Google Apps is screaming fast - especially GMail and Calendar

    Yeh the webmail system is actually pretty good. I particularly like the fact it doesn't have any adverts.

    You can of course use an outlook client with it as well but I haven't got this far with my testing.

    I think where live@edu has had most success in schools, has been where the school is implementing email for students as a new feature, where no previous email system exists, rather than moving an existing mail system to the cloud.

    I have not used it personally, but a friend and ex colleague of mine has transferred his school over to this already. Not sure on the performance issues, but isn't it very much like having a conbination of OWA and hotmail, both of which because they are HTML based (in presentation) are quite limited!

    Thinking this was a popular product I would expect there to be a nice forum or blog for Live@edu...
    Outlook Live Answers does the trick for me..

    Put all the exam users in a distribution group. Use transport rules that prevent that distribution group from sending or receiving e-mails.

    You need to get ZH in the office, so he can install the Woopra console for you then you can see pretty little flags for all logged in members with their location.
    You can even chat with them online, and take over their computers . . . - whoops did i just reveal the hidden EG payload?

    Even better when I have to administer these exams where they use an external email client!

    I have to comment on a blog as part of an I.T assignment so am doing just that. Sorry to be a nuisance. As you were...

    Yep 3 days in now and this has made our network so much more secure and fast.

    Great improvement.

    I check it once a week and add the few mac addresses that are new. I just gives me so much more control.

    I discovered this solution elsewhere, but it works perfectly, and well worth implementing! Took a while to trawl through initially and get all the various devices added to the list, then it's just a case of checking every so often as they bring in new devices...

    Dead simple, ideal solution!

    Just a heads up that when I tried to use this, my DCHP server no longer gave out IP addresses. A strong possibility that I messed up somewhere along the line, but thought it worth a mention.

    Also worth mentioning is that this capablility is inbuilt into Windows Server 2008R2, so I might shift my DHCP server onto that...
