Internal Exchange Mail Server (or suitable substitute) that has the capability offering cloud services
Posted on 2014-01-09
I have been asked this question by my boss, and I hope that I word this right. We are getting ready to change our email here to "possibly" Exchange for our business. I was wondering if the server offers some kind of cloud benefit for our offsite laptop users. In other words, I am looking for something that will "not" require a VPN connection. We want the email here internally, but it seems that most things are moving to a cloud based system. So, in summary: Purchase an internal mail server, used for all of us here at the business, but have an option to have our salespersons access there email by pointing to cloud based service and NOT through a VPN. I hope this made sense. Feel free to ask me any questions. I am tasked to get some kind of email services for the company up and running., ALSO, but this might be another question "are there suitable substitute mail server technology" that is as popular as MS Exchange. Keep in mind, the boss does not want the brunt of email users to be hosted by anything outside. Just hoping for the outside users, we could host are own cloud of sorts. Thanks so much for taking the time. I would hope that there is, I am new here and you guys can really make me look good.
