Can anyone recommend a provider for either on premises Extranet software or alternatively a tried and true hosted solution?

Preferably something that you don't need to licence per user as we have clients coming and going that will use the service. 

This is for use in legal services and we are not interested in hosting data outside of NZ. 

Looks like owncloud could do it, but at a cost of US $9k per yet for 50 users (min) it's pretty spendy.

By extranet is that a particular software package or you mean things like email, document storage etc.?

We are after online data room type functionality. Not worried about what package it is built on tbh.

By ownCloud do you mean owncloud.org?  You can run the open source edition for free, if you can get by without the "enterprise" features or support.

We use owncloud (free version) and its OK. Its far from perfect and they have only recently fixed same major quota bugs. If you have $$ to burn I'd keep looking, SharePoint or Alfresco would probably even be a better option.

I am a big fan of kerio mail server but i think they also have something that competes with Sharepoint now too.
