Hosted Exchange Services with Microsoft Exchange Server

This article highlights the pros and cons of using a hosted Exchange service as opposed to implementing Microsoft Exchange Server yourself in-house.

A number of Internet Service Providers (ISP’s) are now hosting Microsoft Exchange Server for small businesses who want to utilise the power of Exchange Server without the hassle involved of managing it and maintaining it in-house. This service is typically called Hosted Exchange or a Managed Exchange Service. Note that because Exchange Server is an “application”, you will also see the vendors offering this service referred to as ASP’s (Application Service Providers).
