I've been asked by our head of IT to look into using epals (schoolmail) for pupils here. I'm reluctant to introduce another system as we have Exchange installed which is currently used by staff and sixth form (Rest of school pending) and management use our LA e-mail system.
Does anyone have any experience of using epals schoolmail? (apart from chrbb - thanks for reply)

Why are you looking into another Email system when you have exchange already in place :?:

but...you're already using two systems, do you want a third?
And hows it easier? Surely AV + Spam is in place already

Yes, we use Puremessage AV and anti-spam, I think the argument is that with epals staff will have control over where pupils can send messages - only within our school users group, to other schools and outside of epals (though chrb thinks this it may not be possible to send outside epals and I can't find any info on the site to counter this)
