Hosted Exchange for Personal use
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?

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

Yup I use Microsoft Exchange Online. On Plan 2 purely so I can have a massive exchange mailbox and never worry

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?

I dont like the outlook.com UI, I much prefer the OWA one, its a bit more slicker imo

Plan 1 and Plan 2 both get 25GB mailboxes.
