We're a mid-sized company looking to setup our email servers. What would you recommend? Exchange / Gmail / Open Exchange / Zimbra? or none of the above...
We need to share emails, have groups of email users, calendars and notes etc..
Either way, I'd suggest you stick with open standards and not lock yourself into a proprietary system.
Exchange is great when it's working, it can cause you a lot of headaches if it goes wrong.. Rackspace offer a managed exchange solution - This takes away all the technical hassling - but I think you have to be already be a Rackspace client, not sure.. It had a bit of trouble at the beginning, but seems to have settled down now, and generally is a good setup. They offer a easy to use management console too.
However, I'd tend to agree with Iain and go with something open, long term it's bound to be safer. Maybe there's a managed open exchange / hosted open exchange company somewhere?
