    Private Exchange Hosting

    Can anyone recommend a good, cheapish reliable Exchange Host for 1 mailbox that can be paid on a monthly basis?

    My current webmail platform, squirrel mail, subscription expires next month and I want to look into getting a exchange mailbox for myself to integrate a iPod touch, Windows Mobile 6.5 Smartphone, 2 laptops and a work pc (running OWA) on the same email address.

    With the ability to update Calender reminders, email, contacts etc on all clients.

    I have looked in hosting a linux solution at home, but I will need a static IP for it to function properly and I cannot find one that I use as a exchange server.


    Also, My domain name also expires in Sept, so I will be possibly be looking to move that to another place if need be.

    Can anyone advise?

    Thanks

    I used SMS Hosted Exchange - Best Microsoft Exchange hosting, Hosted Exchange with immediate setup for a number of years without any problems. If anything, it looks better now than it did then (not logging in with a numerical identifier, for example).

    Just note that cheapest isn't always the best. ;-)

    I currently use Sherweb (#1 Microsoft Hosted Exchange & Sharepoint Web Hosting | SherWeb) based in Canada. Had nothing but great service from them over the past three years. Around $9/month for a 3gb exchange box.

    I've not used them myself, but Godaddy offer personal exchange accounts from around 4/5 a month
    Browser Update Page

    Most hosted providers are still 2007 tho, which would bug me since we have 2010 at work :P

    Went with CS New Media. Carl is a great guy to talk to. And although I am having a few teething problems, its been a quick process.
