SMS MS Exchange Mailboxes now a massive 2GB of storage for only ?4.99 per month
Warrington, UK, Tuesday 8th September 2009. Simply Mail Solution has announced that the mailbox size for MS Exchange has been increased to 2GB with monthly charges remaining the same.
Commented Colin Smith, Managing Director of SMS: ?With storage and attachment sizes consistently growing at a rate of 35% per year we have decided that it is time to provide our customers with more space. We have therefore increased our standard storage size to 2GB. For users who need even more than that we now offer our Executive package providing unlimited email storage*?.
Colin Smith further commented: ?From today all MSE mailboxes will be upgraded to 2GB of storage. Existing customers with MS Exchange Executive mailboxes, which were 2GB will have mailbox limits* removed shortly. All new customers will obviously have the new storage sizes applied to their mailboxes immediately?.
Especially for small and medium sized enterprises hosted MS Exchange email services are extremely cost-effective and with the increased storage size from Simply Mail Solutions it will help businesses to keep the costs for their email solutions as low as possible. MSE is the leading paid for email and collaboration suite providing calendars, tasks and contacts with sharing of information between colleagues in a business leading to greatly increased productivity. Storage space is a major factor in the decision new users make between different paid for email hosting companies.

2 Hosted Exchange Reviews for Simply Mail Solutions Doubles mailbox size!

We have been using Simply Mail Solutions for about two years. Their services has been okay, but not great. We have had several outages each year.
Anyhow, the reason that I have given them only two stars is because they have a very restrictive contract which allows them to automatically renew your email hosting without any notice. I.e. The day before they renew your hosting, they invoice you and then just take the money from your account
This is fine if you always have the same email requires every year. However, this contract is clearly designed to lock customers in. They really should give their customers notice and the chance to change their requirements.
I wasn’t made aware of this when we signed up with them. When I realised that they taken the money our account, I phoned up and said that actually I wasn’t planning to renew all our mailboxes. I explained that I had wanted to reduce the number of mailboxes on our account from 31 to 28. Colin Smith just said “Look, you agreed to the contract and there is nothing you can do about it.”
There are lots of email providers that don’t treat their customer like this and so we are leaving them as soon as possible (I.e. when our contract runs out).
My advice is: don’t get caught out and don’t use Simply Mail Solutions and use another company that treats their customers kindly and in a respectful manner.

4 of us decided to move our personal email addresses to our own domains and decided to go with Simply Mail Solutions. On 4 separate occasions, 4 separate accounts and under 4 separate names they did indeed still bill all of our cards, months after we cancelled. Whether you pay by DEBIT or CREDIT card, you can ask your card issuer to do a charge-back. Charge-backs are not just for credit cards. Completely unethical and this alone is a reason to avoid them.
Simply mail solutions have zero redundencies. The nameservers they provide have IPs pointing to the same node using the same network path. In simple terms, they have 2 name servers pointing to the same server. There are no redundencies. DNS is the first point of contact any client server makes so without being able to communicate to the DNS servers, clients will not know where to delivery email to (MX records).
On to even more worrying issues. The mail servers are all hostes on a single machine. Let me stress, ALL MAIL SERVERS ARE RUNNING ON A SINGLE MACHINE.
I have a third party monitoring service monitoring all the internet based services I purchase, I also use pingdom. Here are the stats:
