hi guys

we have an exchange 2003 server with about 180 mailboxes. we will be going to 2007 shortly and i was wondering if anyone has any experience of the bpos i.e. exchange over cloud computing etc. is there any advantages / disadvantages to doing it this way rather then keeping the server in house

180 Users - I would say BPOS.

We have 10K users and when made a cost comparison, in-house exchange is cheaper.

Good luck

It is more business decision than technical one.
Microsoft is already running thousands of mailboxes in BPOS for many organizations. So any technical limitations are out of scope. You can see a comparison of features at below link.

Are your AD admin tools letting you down?

Managing Active Directory can get complicated.  Often, the native tools for managing AD are just not up to the task.  The largest Active Directory installations in the world have relied on one tool to manage their day-to-day administration tasks: Hyena. Start your trial today.

but from a cost perspective the in house is surely a lot cheaper. server license costs 600, dont know how much exchange costs but the bpos would prob cost several thousand each year ,every year?

I would always recommend In-house Exchange server....
You can customise and make changes according to your needs with everything ..
With BPOS you will maybe have to pay for any changes you would want ..

Remember we have Exchange server for better Administration and safeguarding our data with secreacy .... what if its with someone and you dont have much control over it ??
