UK web hosting provider 1&1 Internet announced on Tuesday it is offering a business-class email package based on Microsoft Exchange 2013, which are designed to help SMEs receive the most value from email communication.
The move comes a couple months after 1&1 Internet launched a new TV commercial which demonstrates the SEO and social media functions of its MyWebsite website building tool.
Priced at £6.99 per month per account, the new 1&1 Microsoft Exchange 2013 includes 25GB capacity, the latest version Outlook 2013, customizable email via 1 free domain name, better team-working with sharable contacts, calendars and tasks, fully featured remote access to emails, synchronized mobile email via Outlook Web Access with touch optimization for tablets and smartphone devices, offline access to email messages using OWA caching, and integration of other MS Office applications and an intuitive user-interface.
The new 1&1 hosted email plan offers new features for quickly accessing, processing and archiving emails in both a desktop and mobile environment.
The hosted email package builds upon 1&1’s previous version with new functionalities. All email data is stored in 1&1’s own highly secure data centers, and users benefit from 1&1’s high levels of uptime, security, anti-spam and anti-virus protection.
1&1 Microsoft Exchange 2013 uses a cloud-based model, enabling users to scale their mailboxes accordingly on a monthly basis without committing to a contract.
This flexibility allows users to adapt their requirements to their specific workload or organizational needs, and only pay for what they need.
The company says the new hosted Exchange 2013 service can help UK businesses enhance email accessibility, email handling, and the level of security available to them.
