    Hi guys! :biggrin

    I have been using a basic Web Hosting account for e-mail, but since I am at work most of the time and still have the need to receive my e-mail's - I have been using the basic Webmail access but because its pop3 all of my e-mails are downloaded when I run outlook and if i reply to people at home via outlook then when I'm at work cant see the sent mail because they arent sync'd, so I have been considering paying for Exchange e-mail not running my own server just paying for a account - But they are all £10+ per month just for 1 Exchange Mailbox I would like 1 exchange mailbox and about 5 normal pop3 mailboxes.

    So my question is do you wise ones have any recomendations of how I could get exchange or any cheap hosting companies?

    Thanks in advance :biggrin

    Er - if it is webmail then it isn't POP3. :biggrin Two entirely different systems.

    However - ask the hosting site if they do IMAP as well as POP3.

    IMAP allows you to leave the email on the server, so you still can see your email from a different client.

    Can you not configure Outlook to leave a copy of the emails on the server? :blink

    I got fed up with relying on ISP mail. Although this service is free, should it play up they won't do anything about it because the <line> is the only part of the agreeement you are paying for.
    I signed up with fastmail and can't fault it. I can now keep my personal e-mail address (and other's) for ever, Amen.
    A friend of mine has been using the same e-mail address (ISP based) for so long, he is afraid to change ISP service.

    There are many benefits, including webspace and SMTP. I can use Thunderbird from wherever. :biggrin
