email opinions and advice
I've took it upon myself to see what email solutions there are out there, Currently we don't control our email its all done at county level the gits even charge us £5 for a email new email address plus there calendar options are pretty poor. The boss she would love to have our own exchange server in house but we spending at of money at the moment on load of things so it might be out of the question. So i'm left with really google apps and Microsoft Live@edu, I'm liking google app as I use gmail as my own personal email and I love it but
is it really 'free'?
are there ad's?
is the good control? (e.g not letting the kids to send out bound emails, monitor what they are sending each other?)
can you create email lists?
is it any good for schools?
reliable (which county isn't sometimes)?
And the same question free for Microsoft Live@edu, or should we just wait until we can afford our own exchange server? but personal i rather see us move away from county email ASAP to be honest. Any advice or opinion would be great :)
