EXCHANGE 2003 & ISP
Posted on 2009-04-28
Does anyone know the best ISP providers to go with other than BT, in order that I can setup exchange 2003 at home via a Business Line and successfully send & receive email externally.
Once Ive confirmed what is required and I can prove I can communicate with the chosen ISP I can then offer this as a service to new business customer and use whatever ISP Ive used to bring new customers on board.
So I get paid for setting up a companies exchange server within the company so that everyone can send and receive email externally.
The ISP im currently with say that they dont provide the service I want as they are not earning any money from me. which i did not understand as I can still receive email from an external person back to my local domain.
so ive been told that that have a 3rd party package that provides something else for what i wish.
I think weve got ourselves confused personally, but im not sure!!
I do though have a business line, although I think it still maybe via broadband, so Im not sure if this is the real issue??
I am using a Dynamic type of Fixed address as they interpret it, but from my knowledge and speaking with others, ive been told that as long as I monitor the IP Address and change it according on my 123reg dns then email should always work.
This is good for me because once Ive confirmed I can ACTUALLY setup email for users to send & recieve, then I will no longer require this service but will continue to use the package, ie my internet access. Until maybe I use some other software out there in the future that will again require my fixed ip again. Like I say as long I change it at my 123reg dns then I should be ok.??
