Hosted Email, Hosted Exchange or Cloud Email works by simply replacing the infrastructure normally associated with providing Exchange with a “service” delivered from HPT’s data centres. Instead of managing servers, infrastructure and software, you can simply take email services on demand as you need them and configure them as if you owned the infrastructure, but with the resilience and features of a larger enterprise.
Features of Hosted Email
- Fully, instantly synchronised email, calendars and contacts through Microsoft Outlook or Entourage
- Advanced web mail through Outlook Web Access
- Shared calendars that allow employees to see colleagues’ availability, helping them schedule meetings and plan projects
- Public folder management
- Shared task lists that allow ‘to do’ lists to be created and assigned, then shared with team members
- Synchronised contacts which guarantee your personal address book will never be lost or misplaced
Whilst the user experience is identical to using a locally installed application, the SaaS (software as a service) model gives you access to the latest applications for a low monthly subscription fee, rather than having to buy, install and manage the software yourself. SaaS also allows you to access these applications from anywhere, whether at home, in the office, on the move or anywhere else with an internet connection.
As a user, you simply enjoy the benefits of not having to worry about your Exchange or Small Business Server system. We ensure the system does not crash, fall over, get attacked or any of the other things that could happen to prevent your business from communicating.
Our Exchange packs let you start using MS Exchange with a minimal investment in terms of time and money – giving you the flexibility to simply add users as your needs grow. Account configuration and management is achieved with an easy to use control panel. For larger requirements, please contact our sales team who can arrange special discounts for enterprise-sized deployments.
Like your own system, you have an easy to use yet powerful interface to control your email policies, create accounts, edit public folders, set up mailbox sizes and more.
To use, you simply setup an account with HPT, create your email accounts and download a setup wizard which will connect your copy of Outlook or Entourage to our environment, allowing you full access from wherever you are, at lightning speed.
