yes i sync calander, contacts over the air (ie not via itunes) with iconz and it works great

emails usually slow up on my iphone 1-2 seconds quicker than Outlook

the cheaper plan still means you can use outlook 2003 or 2007, im using 2003, so if you already have one of those, you dont need their copy / more expensive plan, im on the cheaper plan using my own copy of outlook 2003

Im happy with the speed

How has your review gone? We're looking for a new host because we've had endless reliability problems with our current one so would be interested to hear your decision.

update on my infoquest, I am more than happy, 2 months free, and now into the third month of paid service. Definitely a go, for me anyway.

Edit: I have my emails through google apps for my domain, which is a .net TLD anyway, and it pushes almost instantly for my use Cool

If I remember rightly, that was the service that was hosted in the USA.

The problem i found with that was emails etc. were slower to arrive (obviously) because the servers in the US.

Im pretty sure this is the one I had the issues with about that, I will haveto double check my emails.

Actually, How are you managing with having to pay USD? because the currencies are so damn volitile, how are you dealing with that?

Alternative solution.

Do you know about google online apps? All you need is just buy a domain name you like and use google apps as you e-mail server with the best service provided by google :) and it would be your.name@your.domain.co.nz e-mail :)

 and it's FREE :) well you can upgrade to business solution if you want.



My company was with ZeroOne but we had a few support issues with them and decided to go with Google Apps instead and haven't looked back since!

Sure.  We were with them for 4 months before we had enough and switched to Google.  Every 3-4 weeks there was at least one email outage for longer than an hour during business hours.  We also found their customer support was poor to say the least - it seemed like they were short staffed.  This was a year ago so it's possible that they've turned things around.  Google still has the occasional outages but it's nothing like we had when we were with ZeroOne.  Also for US$50 per year per user you can get a 99.99% uptime SLA with Google.

I am currently with Bizo - an NZ based company who are providing Hosted Exchange to Black + White data plan customers.

No issues with their service so far.
