    I am setting up a small business and figured now is the time to rethink my inbox system. I use Gmail via Apple Mail on my iPad, iPhone and MacBookPro (which acts as a desktop). That's fine for personal email that doesn't have a high priority. But I sort of like, and am used to, having work email be in a separate program. In the past I was forced to use an Exchange server so Entourage was my only option. I am using Google Aps to host my domains email so that opens up a lot of options.

    What I likeds about Exchange was that all devices auto sycned all cal / contacts / email. I need to have that here.


    So whats my best option? If i MUST i'll continue to use Apple Mail, but since my personal mail is already there its not the best option for me.

    there are some companies who host exchange mail boxes for you. i have no experience with any of them, but know there are some for pretty reasonable monthly fees.

    Right, MS Online does it for $10/ month which I guess is possible, but I'd rather find a good free solution

    i think gmail on your own domain is the best you can do for free :dunno: its what i do..

    theres a linux based exchange type software that can be installed on your web server which i think would be free, but again i have no experience with it
