    Hosted Exchange for Personal use

    Hi All,

    Just a bit of a "put it out there" question.

    I want to be able to have a hosted exchange mailbox for my personal use, I have it at moment wih a custom domain with outlook.com and it works well, but I really love the interface of OWA (Yup, sad I know!) and its just down to personal preference I suppose. I've got a trial of Office365 and thats £3.90/month (excl VAT) for exchange, web apps, sharepoint and something else...I forget.

    Ive very briefly looked around the web and that seems like the best offer ive seen so far, can anybody recommened a reliable host?

    Cheers,

    Mart

    I dont really need the addons but to get some of the nice features like web apps, you need the 3.90 plan. Im not going to use sharepoint

    RackSpace is a popular choice for hosted Exchange. They charge £6.75 per mailbox per month.

    neither did I, and I didn't want to use Office365. I havn't had any problems with it and only once not been able to login and that was during a maintenance window. More info EduTech Hosting Services

    This is the company that he resells Resell Hosted Exchange by MessageStream

    The Exchange Online Plan P1 is what you need.

    Does that mean you don't get a 25GB mailbox with Plan 1? The website lists both plans as having 25GB?

    Also, it is possible to get the new Outlook.com UI in Exchange Online yet?

    Plan 1 and Plan 2 both get 25GB mailboxes.

    Unless you need an unlimited personal archive, or advanced eDiscovery features, P1 is fine.
