The drop in day for local businesses ran between 3pm and 7pm, giving Unified World’s customers and contacts the chance to go on a giant Scalextric and F1 car Simulator, to win a Brand new iPad for beating the Stig’s fastest time.

Exchange Online is Microsoft’s own hosted email service that is based on the same technology behind Exchange Server 2010. Mailboxes are stored in large secure data centres spread across Europe. It can be used on its own or integrated with on-premises Exchange installations.
There are many advantages that can be gained by moving to Exchange Online such as reduced cost. The cloud provides a high quality service, while working at a lower cost per user. In addition to this, Exchange Online upgrades and patches are managed by Microsoft, saving a considerable amount of time and ensuring your data is managed by the best in the business.

Exchange Online provides each user with 25GB of storage, with an option to purchase archives with unlimited storage. Cost plans are set per user, per month making budgeting simple. If your company expands quickly, then additional mailboxes are easily created in the cloud.

Exchange Online can be purchased as part of an Office 365 plan. This means that you can integrate it with SharePoint Online, Lync Online and online versions of Office, allowing you to simplify your own infrastructure further.
