Mercury Mail is a good bet if you have a SOHO setup.

It doesn't have all the fancy admin consoles that Exchange does, nor does it do any non-email stuff (like resource bookings, shared calendars, etc) but it's very easy to setup and has a pretty good feature set. Plus it's a New Zealand product.

Have a look at Smartermail http://www.smartertools.com/Products/SmarterMail/Free.aspx Free for a single domain and up to ten users. Connector for Outlook and good webmail interface.

ictgeeknz: You don't need 64bit processor(s) to run Microsoft Exchange Server 2007.  Where did you read that nonsense?


You can only run Microsoft Exchange Server 2007 on 64 bit OS. An unsupported 32 bit version is available for testing and cannot be used in a production environment.


Q: Will I have to buy new hardware to run Exchange Server 2007?

A: If you are running 64-bit hardware in your current messaging environment, you may not have to buy additional hardware. However, Exchange 2007 does require hardware and an operating system that are 64-bit. 64-bit hardware provides the system architecture that is required to support the increased memory, storage, and enhanced security requirements in a more cost-effective manner.

Q: Will I need the 64-bit version of Windows Server 2003 to run Exchange Server 2007?
A: You will need the 64-bit version of Windows Server 2003 or Windows Server 2003 R2 to deploy Exchange 2007. Volume licensing customers can exchange their 32-bit version of Windows Server 2003 for the 64-bit version any time by using their media kits.

Its well known that exchange 2007 does not run on 32bit.

We need to know what sort of environment it is (number of users, intended use, available hardware and host os etc), and then its easy to reccomend some options.

self edit: i'm an idiot

I have 55 users currently. Planning to expand. We need an exchange alternitave. We run Server 03. I currently have an IBM 206m with 1gb of RAM, 3ghz processor and 750gb of hdd space. Its not for heavy usage, but we need the things like calenders, webmail and outlook compatibillity.

I had been using a 32-bit version of Exchange 2007 for testing. Innocent

There is a hosting company providing Exchange hosting (www.digitalwaves.co.nz), I do have my mails with them. I've heard they are pretty good, $12.50 per mail box with your own email domain. if only 55 users why don't you outsource?

I've read in other threads that you have google apps.

Is there a way that you can have your email going through google apps and then when your server is online it will go to your server?

Few questions however with this:

Does exchange 03 work with office 07? with full syncronization with mobile devices?

Can exchange 03 be set to retrieve emails from google apps so that you dont lose any emails when your server is turned off? which also could provide you with your webmail?

Yes, Office 2007 works with Exchange Server 2003. Full synchronisation with mobile devices is ok from Exchange Server 2003 SP2 including Direct Push.

Some new device management is introduced with Exchange Server 2007.

You can run a POP3 Connector software to log into a POP3 server and download e-mail into your Exchange Server. Windows SBS comes with such a tool, but not Windows Server. The tools itself can be cheap - I use POPCon for example and get e-mails from some accounts on Paradise, Xtra and Orcon into my Exchange Server.

with PopCon do I have to individually configure email adresses on it? or will it automatically bring in all mail from our domain and then sort it when it arrives on the server?

No way on that site mentioned Hosted Exchange services... Are you trying to promote the website in hope to gain this person's money?

As far as I know, ZeroOne's AnywhereExchange has a Hosted Exchange service and is a NZ-based company.

You can configure rules or you can make all e-mail from one POP3 account go directly to an Exchange account.

Just looking at the configuration of PopCon "POPcon only works with a standard SMTP connection WITHOUT authentication, so allow "Anonymous access" in the "Authentication" dialog:"

does this mean that it wont work with google apps as it requires ssl encryption on incoming and outgoing connection
