Hosted Email -- exchange vs others ?

I currently have an old Exchange server.

What "email hosting" companies do you recommend for 30 users ?

Where are you located and what is against buying a new exchangeserver?

There's a large number of companies out there who will host email so it's difficult to recommend one. I've had a number of clients who have used various services in the past - gmail, cobweb, outlook 365, 123-reg, etc.

It would really boil down to what you are after - lot of companies will offer POP or IMAP email but this is not as functional as Exchange servers (i.e. calendar and contacts not synchronised), some companies will offer full Exchange hosting (Outlook.com/office 365 for example) which gives you almost the same functionality as your exchange server though may cost more due to increased storage space.

Or, you can use Office 365 SBP: http://office.microsoft.com/en-001/business/office-365-small-business-premium-office-online-FX103037625.aspx
if your users are used to Outlook.

Dan CraciunIT ConsultantCommented:
Did not see you need 30 users. SBP is up to 10 users.
For more, you'll need Office 365 Midsize Business: http://office.microsoft.com/en-001/business/office-365-midsize-business-productivity-software-FX103037683.aspx
