    The real difference between Exchange and the others - at least for now - is that only Exchange servers can sync with Outlook, and thus give you a local copy of your data.
    I beg to differ. If the data is held on a computer that I own then it is not in the cloud. It is my data, held on my server. The cloud involves a third party holding your data remotely.

    In fact, there has been discussion in this forum about a paid Exchange service that is available.

    So sync'ing with an Exchange server is the cloud--you just might trust it more if the server is owned by your company.
    I think there is a difference. The sync mechanics are the same. I agree. But the cloud arguement is about security of data being held by third parties and therefore being more vulnerable.

    OTA syncing also introduces the potential security risk but it is not the same issue as having your data in the cloud.

    I bought gSyncit to sync Outlook on the Desktop with Google Calendar and Contacts.
    Now my devices sync to each other, to Outlook and to Google like this:



    I guess the Pre could fit in somewhere

    Maybe Microsoft isn't cutting them any slack on licensing of the OS and App?

    Wouldn't surprise me at all since almost all of them will provide you with a copy of Outlook with your subscription.

    I'm still hoping/praying that someone comes up with a desktop alternative.

    I've been using mail2web (and also mail2pda & mail2wap) for, oh, 6 years or more now and never had any issues or complaints with them. Highly recommended!

    Makes sense if they're already paying for the CAL. Outlook is included in that.

    Since after reading this thread I see you guys are pretty clued in on this. Can anyone recommend where I can read more to understand what the best way to set up a hosted exchange so I can work with my 755p soon (I hope) to be pre.

    FYI I have an office of 7 but I would am the only one who really needs this.

    thanks.

    If you are the only one needing it, it might be cheaper for you to use a hosted exchange server. Otherwise, you might want to just purchase Exchange Server from MS.

    Kind of pricey, don't you think?

    Exchange Server 2007 Standard Edition: $699 US

    Enables creation of up to 5 storage groups, with a maximum of 5 databases per Mailbox server role.

    I'm still of the opinion that a hosted exchange server is just one more potential vulnerability. Your data is flying through enough channels as it is, why chance it? I'm especially more skeptical about placing my data on any servers after hearing about the recent Google docs security breach.

    So no Pre plans, schnoid?

    hah, it's definitely not gonna change my Pre plans... I'm obsessed and I know it ;-) I am however gonna try to keep as little info in the cloud as possible. If I have to setup my own Exchange server, then that'll have to do!
