Hosted Exchange -- ease of migration; ease of use; service provder review
Posted on 2006-10-20
We are a 10-person geographically diverse financial services business and have POP email provided by Yahoo Small Business for the last year or so. Business is growing rapidly and we quickly need to migrate to a Hosted Exchange solution mainly for calendar sharing and wireless access (ie. Blackberry and Good Mobile Messaging).
Would appreciate feedback on
1- How easy is the migration to hosted exchange and what should we do to prevent service disruption
2- How easy is it to add/delete users, control spam filtering, etc. by individual users (we don't have an IT administrator)
3- We are looking at Intermedia, Navisite and Creativedata.net as potential providers. Any views on how our choice would influence the answers to the two questions above? Given our business, reliability and "fire-and-forget" usability is more important than saving the last dollar.
Thanks in advance.
