  • If I switch to Hosted Exchange from an in house email server, can I still maintain control of the settings and mailboxes?

    Our service enables you to maintain control of your email solution without the headache of maintaining the server. The control panel allows an administrator to turn mailboxes on and off, set permissions, set passwords, create distribution lists, create and manage email rules, and set mailbox size and limits. These features, as well as many others, enable an IT administrator to maintain complete control of their email solution.

  • I’m currently using Microsoft Outlook® with a POP3 or basic webmail account. Why would I want to upgrade to Hosted Exchange?

    Outlook connected to a POP3 or webmail email account enables each user to manage their personal information (contacts, calendars, folders, documents etc.), but does not allow you to share it with anyone. With Hosted Exchange, this information can be shared among your business, making you faster at responding to requests, helping you quickly find files and emails, and taking the headache out of communicating with your employees, clients, and vendors. It also enables every user to access their information from any internet connection, keeping you connected and in sync wherever you go.

  • What type of calendaring is available in Hosted Exchange?

    Hosted Exchange offers the full functionality of Exchange and Outlook. The main calendaring features include creating appointments and events, organizing meetings, viewing group schedules, viewing other colleagues calendars side by side and overlaid, linking calendars to a SharePoint site, sending calendars through email, publishing calendars online, and managing other users calendars through delegated access. Hosted Exchange offers a complete solution for all your organization’s scheduling and calendaring needs.

  • My Company has third party software that plugs into Outlook. Will the Hosted Exchange service integrate with that software?

    If your software works with Outlook today it should work with Hosted Exchange.


  • Can I sync my information with my mobile phone?

    Hosted Exchange offers real time sync on any Windows Phone, iPhone, Android, BlackBerry, and many other types of mobile devices, with more being added all the time. All of your important information is easily accessible from any internet connection or from any internet enabled mobile device.

  • Will Hosted Exchange work on my Blackberry?

    Hosted Exchange is compatible with BlackBerry Enterprise Server (BES) for an additional price. With BES all of your email and information is synchronized in real time.


  • Will Hosted Exchange work on my Mac or other Apple® devices?

    Outlook 2011 for Mac integrates seamlessly with Hosted Exchange and offers all the productivity gains of Exchange. Hosted Exchange syncs seamlessly with the iPhone and iPad devices.


  • Where is my information (Emails, Calendars, Contacts, and Documents) stored?

    Your information and email is stored in Top Tier Secure Data Centers across the country. Your Data is backed up regularly. If you accidently delete an item, the item can be retrieved … even up to 30 days after it was deleted.
