Hi There!

Just wondering if any of you have experience with hosted exchange providers in NZ? I have been using Orcon but it's just horrible service there right now and things like aliases are just a 2 week drama after another. Ideally I would like somewhere with a reseller program, but it's not critical. I have a client who needs a 5GB Mailbox (I know, I know it's bad).

I want servers that are located in NZ, not overseas so I can get the ping times down nice and low.

I had a look at myhostedexchange.co.nz but after 3 messages left and no calls back I can only imagine what support must be like if sales are like that!

Does your customer only need one mailbox? Microsoft BPOS is hosted in Singapore but it's really fast. Minimum five seats though - my company is a reseller, you can contact me off thread if needed to check anything.

There website doesn't look that promising either.

 

Sorry but I don't know of any. Have you tried net24 they possibily may do it, their service is very good, but they are a bit on the pricey side. However you get what you pay for.

Thanks for suggesting us, but we don't offer Hosted Exchange unfortunately. We looked at offering Exchange 2010 about two months ago, even had the test infrastructure all setup and then realised MS Online were offering a 2GB mailbox for about $8NZ (it's now a 25GB mailbox) and thought it would be silly to try compete with that!

One Net is great, and it has a brilliant web inteface where you can do most things youself, add alias, forwarding, change passwords, setup blackberrys if needed, create mailboxes and many more things

I use them for about 100 mailbox's, their service and uptime has been great over the last few years,

Their datacentre is in Auckland

If you want more info send me a PM, If you want i can even set them up.

In 1995 a 1GB hard drive was huge. 2GB for a mailbox is pretty huge, and compares well with what other companies offer. You just download the email that you want to keep to a local computer. However don't telecom now subcontract out all their web hosting to a US company, so it is US hosted anyway.

Microsfts own service may be an option as net24 suggested, as it is almost impossible for any NZ company to compete with that offer, even though it maybe hosted in the US, that isn't a bad thing.

I believe MS Online is hosted in Singapore DC for Asia-Pacific. Not sure about the speed however, and some NZ companies just prefer to have their data hosted close to home.

As I said before, I personally use Microsoft BPOS (or Microsoft Online if you prefer), and speed is really not a problem...

Yeah we are trialling moving from an in-house exchange 2003 box to bpos, it's a really attractive option.

However lack of public folders is a shame, I guess they are trying to get people to use sharepoint online for collaboration (eww).
