So what you are saying is you want all the features and functions of Oh of a
Ferrari at the price of a Chevy.




So you want the hosting provider to take all the risks and all the time to
set up with no guarantee of profit, or even covering setup costs so you can
have your cheap fly-by-night rate. Sir, you are the problem with hosting


While you may actually find what you are looking for, that kind of service
at that kind of price is what is so wrong with hosting providers these days,
giving away stuff for practically free so that the legitimate small business


You need to get some morals and ethics and pay the proper price for what you


Yes, I am in fact saying that many of those cheap hosting companies are not
on the up and up with licensing and usage agreements.


The minimum cost for legally licensed Exchange Hosting in the US is about
$3.25 per mail box plus hardware costs plus support costs plus profit for
the provider. 


And yes it takes time to set everything up for a client.


So, if you are seeking pricing less than actual costs, you sir are part of
the problem.




Blast shields up, fire away.

Hi all wondered if you have any hosted suggestions (using my current domain
name) for just the one exchange box and 2 standard pop3 mailboxes (with the
option to add a 2nd or more exchange mailboxes further down the line)

I've got a quote from serverworld.co.uk and they charge 8.95 for exchange
but want a setup costs and 3 months up front.

Ideally I'm looking at no setup costs with a month to month contract... For
the exchange mailboxes I need full access via Outlook 2003, push mail via
activesync, owa and possibly oma.

Need a cheap but reliable service!
Any ideas?

Thanks, Wayne
