Now if you're telling me Connect is wrong and that I can use this service for staff, I'm more than happy to give it a go and see what happens.
Who can use Exchange Labs?
The initial rollout of Exchange Labs is designed for select schools and universities as part of Microsoft Live@edu. Microsoft Live@edu “powered by Exchange Labs,” lets these select academic institutions easily connect to students and alumni with e-mail, and integrates these users into existing on-premises Exchange Server deployments that support faculty and staff. We have combined the best-in-class features of Microsoft Exchange Server with the ease and convenience of online hosted e-mail.
