  1. Ok, Peter, I’ll bite. It probably is a good thing since Michael Vizard reports:
    “Within the land of IT, nothing is a bigger pain to own, manage and run than Microsoft Exchange. Everywhere you go customers have horror stories about the installation, maintenance and, above all, uptime of their Microsoft Exchange implementations. And worse yet, they will all tell you they are paying top dollar for the privilege because the expertise needed to successfully run a Microsoft Exchange server is some of the most expensive in the IT labor pool.”
    It’s probably a good idea to have your Exchange environment hosted, to off load a lot of administration to a group of people that can be held to a higher standard than your own IT people. And it is probably more cost effective, too.

  2. Gregg,
    Thanks for this great insight.
    As you may have read in my post about the eWeek article, I was personally not very impressed.
    Hosted Exchange leads to an even bigger marketshare that’s more what I read in this research …
