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 services.


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 losses.


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


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
