Email hosting has become one of the most commonly used forms of communication technology in the industry as providers allow for premium email services along with custom configurations and a large number of accounts. TMCnet was there this week to report on all the latest email hosting news. Here are a few highlights:
Recently, GSXSolutions announced that those who purchase one server license of the latest GSX (News - Alert) Monitor & Analyzer for SharePoint will also get a second server license without any extra expenses.
SharePoint offers a single infrastructure for all the business websites. GSXSolutions’ offer is available only to attendees of SharePoint Conference 2012 and is valid through December 31, 2012. To read more about this incentive, click here.
Recently, Apple (News - Alert) released a fairly small update to iOS 6, called iOS 6.0.1. Located near the bottom of the list of bug fixes in the update is the note “fixes a bug affecting Exchange meetings.” While this is obviously not too big of a deal as far as Apple is concerned, business iPhone (News - Alert) users are likely very happy to see this enhancement to the popular email hosting solution be unveiled, TMCnet reported.
The reason for this is that this fix addresses the iPhone's Mail application hijacking meeting requests and updating the Exchange meeting organizer with the name of a device's owner. The cause of this issue largely stems from the way Apple's Mail application has the ActiveSync protocol implemented. However, some have pointed out that Microsoft (News - Alert) does bear some responsibility as it should account for the many ways that ActiveSync licensees use the protocol.
In other email hosting news this week, Microsoft announced recent portfolio enhancements like the newest version of its acclaimed email hosting solution Exchange 2012, as well as the incredibly popular cloud-based Office 365.
While Office 365 has been around for some time now, Exchange Server 2013 will be making its official debut sometime around the New Year. While the Office suite gives users the ability to view and edit documents alongside other workers from anywhere in the world; select communication channels of choice whether it be audio, video or IM; and focus on business-related tasks while resting assured this robust program will work as promised, the newest edition of Exchange promises to up the ante on email hosting by boasting features such as data loss prevention, a much more intuitive management console coined by the Exchange Administration Center and seamless integration between on-premises Exchange and Office 365.
