Hosted Microsoft Exchange Server as an option for mobile professionals

James Kendrick, blogger from jkOnTheRun covers the benefits a hosted Microsoft Exchange Server solution brings to the mobile professional. The article covers all the various gains plus how to capitalize using a service with mobile devices like Tablet PCs and Pocket PC.

The small company or individual would be confronted with enlisting the services of one of these outside specialists which is also cost prohibitive. Thirdly, a proper Exchange Server setup usually entails dedicated hardware with protection against hardware failure and power interruption.
