    We use google apps for staff email, but would be equally suited for pupil email. Free, and has use of the google suite of webapps. Does all it needs to do. Easy if you don't know how to setup your own email system like Zimbra (which I don't know how to do, although I'd like to know).

    Another one for MDaemon here had it over 4 years and has worked faultlessly.

    we use exchange 2003. we have a setup of 3 physcial exchange boxes. 2 running 1 main virtual server and 1 running the front end.

    students can access owa over the internet.

    we are experincing cases of cyberbulling from students as young as year 4.

    And yet another recomendation for MDaemon...

    We have been using it for over 6 years now without any issues at all. Easy to set up but with some nice features. You can use the web based interface (we have integrated that into our VLE) that comes with it, but it also works very well with Outlook: you don't need the (extra) Outlook connector if you just want basic functionality.

    google's [education apps] servers used to be solely in the US, hence data protection issues, etc, however I'm led to believe that they are now in Dublin and hence come under EU legislation

    you may also wish to consider Microsoft live@edu exchange labs product - free hosted exchange basically (servers in Dublin) [presumably not next to google's!]

    I know I must be missing something here as I don't know how to set the employee type. Anyone

    Under the EU-US Safe Harbor agreement ([ame=http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/International_Safe_Harbor_Privacy_Principles]International Safe Harbor Privacy Principles - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia[/ame]) EU data is now able to be transferred to the US without any data protection implications providing the company involved is accredited by the US department of commerce. Unsurprisingly google is an accredited company.

    We use Easymail + (hate it!) for Students here, with an internally hosted Exchange Server for the staff - which is already proving its worth over EasyMail for Students. It was difficult to paint the illusion it was all running on one domain though - but can offer advice to anyone looking to run the two services in parallel if needs be.

    We used to use exchange, was a nightmare to manage. I hava used Zimbra and would recommend.
    We have just migrated to Google Apps Education Edition. We dont have to worry about managing and maintaining servers or updates any more. AND ITS FREE.

    How did you manage to give users access to their home area using OWA?

    Has anyone here used Live@Edu yet?

    That sounds like a reason to upgrade to 2007... how does it work?

    Check out the Live@Edu programme, free email, SkyDrive and Office Online for all your students. Had a demo at Reading the other day, email is based on Exchange 14 and looks a good bet - even better it's free

    We might use it even though we're Adult Education as it can be made to integrate with Moodle so we've got an assured communications medium and email address to use for password resets

    That sounds very intriguing - do you have any more details?
