Hi, am thinking i wouldn't mind setting up exchange at home, just for the hell of it) and I may look later at pushing email to my k-jam.

I've seen the 30 trial Exchange server vhd's.  And will have a look at one of those.

But for doing it in a home, where i don't currently use a domain, how easy/difficult is it to set up? I'd probably go virtual.

But what are some of the bits i need to do??

TIA

Let me know how you go, I've been toying with this idea for a while too but realise I probably just don't have the skills Cool

If you really want to learn Exchange for your own professional development, go for it, but otherwise, use a hosted solution - you can get a single hosted exchange account so cheap these days, including push email.




Visit http://www.thecloud.net.nz for New Zealand based Hosted Exchange, Virtual Servers, Web Hosting, FTP Backup & more.
(1GB free FTP storage, or larger plans from $5.75)
 
 - Setup your own mailserver at home on Ubuntu Server - full step by step howto here.

Amen to that!!

1and1 shafted me but before that were good, exchanegsync.com was just weird, Sherweb at the moment is pretty good and mail2web is reportedly very very good.

Ahhh if only the NZ providers (Iconz, Orcon, ZeroOne/AnywhereExchange, Vistra, etc) were a little more affordable/competitive (I know there are good reasons why they aren't / can't be)

I suspect there is a small market here for a NZ host to entice Geekzoners with ;-)
