    When I read about the Pre I decided hosted exchange was the best way to go for me (rather than google or facebook or some other option). I set up an account with Sherweb and have been pretty happy with it.

    Having hosted exchange almost eliminated the need to Hotsync for me and I only Hotsync now for backup purposes and Tasks (since Tasks don't sync on the Centro with an Exchange account).

    I looked at several options - Sherweb, Appriver, 1and1, 123Together, and others. I have no idea if Sherweb was the best choice but it is reliable and does what it says and has a high mailbox size which was important to me.

    Well, I'm not busting anyone's chops (and certainly not yours). Indeed, it was an opportunity for the OP to learn something about the search functions, no doubt.

    When I searched the forums for "EAS", I found lots of threads that mention it, but none of them really explain it in simple terms. It's always buried in other topics and not really explained. In fact, I've seen many topics where people confused EAS with Outlook and ActiveSync. They are very different things, but that is never made clear.

    So I took it upon myself to clarify it. And yes, I called out the snippy and facecious comments (not necessary from this thread, just in general). I figured I'd lend a hand instead of biting one.

    I understand why you chose to explain to the OP, I believe the OP would have been better served by trying to find it himself. Wikipedia has a wonderful explanation...

    The OP stated that they probably would get hammered for asking the question, so they obviously understood that it probably warranted a little searching.

    I appreciate your explanation and probably could have been a little more helpful myself, but I think I'm starting to get grumpy in my old age (28). Everyone wants someone else to do the work for them....

    You can't afford this. This is for corporations that want their email to flow in and out through Microsoft's servers for security, virus, and spam purposes.
