Hi everyone!

I need a help on this, I am looking at having my email hosted on Exchange 2003 server for IMAP and Push-ready.

I know there are some hosted Exchange 2003 service available on the net, but they seems a bit steep, although I like the idea of not having to manage/administer the server, however that also take away some freedom of control.

Alternatively is having my MX points to my home IP (Exchange 2003) to host my own email server from home. However, I will have none of my PC/Laptop running/belonging to a Domain (running Home or MCE), To use Outlook 2003 with Exchange 2003, is being on a domain a part of the requirement?


At this stage, I have not got any WM5 devices for Email-Push yet, however I would like to see IMAP option and even better, Exchange connection, either for use on mobile devices/laptop/pc.




p/s: is there any Hosted Exchange service in NZ?

p/s: when will hotmail/Windows Mail Live be upgraded with plenty of storage space? I like the idea of Windows Live Domain with mail hosting. I won't mind that option if only i can get at least 250mb storage.




Internet is my backyard...

We have an affiliate link to 4Smartphone.net and they are very well priced - in the low US$ range! I am not sure, couldn't find anything on the Microsoft Exchange Requirements page, but wouldn't you have to have a Domain on your network?

i dont have a domain set up as MCE cannot join domain. and all my other systems are running XP Home, and using workgroup set up.


I did had a look at 4Smartphone.net and find it reasonably priced though it's only for 1 account as i'd probably need about 3 for now. Do GZ members get discount code?
