Keep in Sync With a Free Exchange Server

logoFor those who have Microsoft Exchange as their email system, they know its utility for keeping multiple devices in sync with emails, contacts, calendars, tasks, and so on.  However, buying and managing an Exchange Server is a time consuming and expensive proposition.  Mail2Web features a hosted Exchange account with “limited access”.

With their free service, you can:

  • Have a personal calendar, tasks list, contacts, reminders, journal
  • Have 100MB of free storage
  • Sync with your mobile device
  • Automatically fetch emails from other accounts

The syncing happiness begins with setting up your Mail2Web Live account and configuring your devices.  If you have a Windows Mobile device, this will involve configuring ActiveSync to work with your Mail2Web service.

Alternatively, if you have a BlackBerry device, you can use the included Exchange support and Palm users can utilize VersaMail.  The ActiveSync settings are shown in the following screenshot:


There are similar solutions out there for Google Mail and other platforms, but Mail2Web Live is perfect for someone who has multiple devices to keep in sync, has a preference for Microsoft Exchange, and may already have ActiveSync on their device.

If you are seeking other hosted Exchange servers, check out web hosts who offer very inexpensive options such as RackSpace, 1and1, and WebHost4Life.
