Does it have to be in New Zealand? There's 4Smartphone.net which seems to be a reasonable price and I know people using it. Then there's the Live mail2web which is free (I think ActiveSync is an extra) and was run by on of the fellow Microsoft MVP. I am sure those can be used as the main MX for your domain.

If you really want a New Zealand based company, there's AnywhereExchange. I don't have experience with them, just saw then in the Google ads here on Geekzone.

AnywhereExchange seems pretty reasonable for single user price. $12/month for 100mb or $19/month for 300mb and ultimate $29/month for 1GB. Not sure whether they have 5+ pricing or not.

well sorry to sound a little n00bish on the PushEmail parts, 4smartphone does look tempting but would I be right in saying that I would be able to use an email address, whose domain name I own. so finally I would end up with 2 expenses. the T3G side of it and the Hosting service by 4smartphone.I am in NZ without my own email server as such so just wanted to start using the new push email functionality on my Apache.
???

Googling for it I found the following website.
Now I was wondering what's the catch with these guys?

I think all of those services allow you to use your own domain name and redirect e-mail to ther servers (that's the MX I talked in my first reply).

emoze is not a hosted e-mail. It's a "desktop redirector". It means there will be a program running on your PC, constantly monitoring the Outlook e-mail and sending out a notification to your Pocket PC. It also means that you must leave your PC always running at home or office, and it's not integrated with other PIM (calendar, contacts) as the Exchange ActiveSync is.

Iconz also provide a hosted push email solution: http://www.iconz.co.nz/ser_oo_plans.php - They seem reseaonably priced.

I use a polled check on my IMAP server I run at home to to receive email on an Apache.

the only disadvantage is it's not strictly speaking 'push email' because Microsoft have not properly implemented the IMAP protocol in ANY of their email clients.

But the advantages are many; sync with desktop email clients (outlook is a broken IMAP client, i reccomend mozilla thunderbird), sync with webmail, server-side email filtering, shared email folders and there are free IMAP servers you can host yourself.

i havn't used outlook 2007 I can only confirm outlook express and outlook 2000 did not expunge emails correctly and windows mobile 5's IMAP client disconnects from the server after checking (IMAP clients like thunderbird and evolution stay connected to receive notifications of new emails) so IMAP's built-in push-like feature does not work.

Outlook 2003 and 2007 allow you to purge deleted mails. you will need to do it via menu. With 2007, you can set imap account/mailbox properties to automatically purge when moving away from the folder, haven't tried this yet.

Please tell me again how discussing a feature existing in one or another e-mail client will help the OP with his question on hosted Exchange?

Otherwise please back on topic.

AnywhereExchange (www.anywhereexchange.co.nz) does support push, For $12 per month you get an Exchange 2003 mailbox with 100 MB of storage space.  ZeroOne can host your domain name for you (no monthly cost), or you can simply point your MX record at the AnywhereExchange platform.
