POP & IMAP email hosting
These packages come at an annual cost and provide reliable, entry level email connectivity. POP & IMAP are the most common account type for personal e‑mail. With POP email, messages are typically deleted from the server when you check your e‑mail meaning that if you have two devices accessing the same email account they will never be 100% in sync. IMAP does allow for some synchronisation across devices but is no substitute for an Exchange Active Sync account – See our Office 365 & hosted exchange Packages below.

Office 365 & Hosted Exchange
These packages offer a fully synchronised cloud based corporate email system. All of your data is securely held in the cloud and is accessible via Microsoft Outlook, Webmail and any mobile device. Basically you can get access to your entire mailbox including sent items and subfolders from anywhere at anytime. With an exchange mailbox you also have the ability to sync calendar appointments, contacts and tasks. Not only does this give you all your data from almost any device it also gives you the ability to share information among your work colleagues such as your calendar or contacts. You can even setup dedicated shared mailboxes where you can give different levels of permissions to different members of staff. This enables you to collaborate data seamlessly with people no matter where they are. This also ensures that should your laptop or PC breakdown you will have all your data backed up, ready to be re synchronised as soon as your up and running.

Microsoft SharePoint
Through our Microsoft Partner network we can provide full SharePoint hosting enabling you to share files and collaborate with colleagues from different locations. This also give you a natural backup of data as all your files are stored on Microsoft’s incredible Office 365 Platform. You can access your files from your PC, laptop, mobile phone or any web browser. This coupled with hosted exchange give you a truly flexible mobile office that is no longer restricted by the four walls of the office.
