Hosted Microsoft Exchange Server as an option for mobile professionals
Posted on 12-Oct-2004 13:10 | Tags Filed under: News



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.

"Big companies have an advantage over the small company or individual when it comes to email handling and information utilization. Mobile professionals that don't happen to work for big companies with big resources have the same basic needs as those who do. Wouldn't it be nice to have the same setup to handle your email, PIM functions, and information distribution even though you are a little guy? There's a simple way to accomplish exactly that which I will discuss in this article. If this situation describes you then read on and see if this is a good solution for your needs.

Having an Exchange Server of your own would provide a lot of utility. This scenario was impossible until recently for a number of reasons. First and foremost, Microsoft Exchange Server can be very expensive to license. Not very cost effective for those small businesses I mentioned. Second, the initial setup and configuration of Exchange Server is not easy by any means, and big companies often have specialists to do this for them who are certified in that very thing. 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. And lastly, maintaining an existing Exchange Server installation can be quite a challenge, even a small setup that an individual would use. All of these reasons has previously meant that an Exchange Server solution was out of the reach of all but the larger companies.

Fortunately for those of us who realize the benefits a Server solution would bring but don't have the resources to provide one, a cost effective solution is now available. A number of companies have begun offering hosted Exchange Server solutions..."
