Great News! Hosted Exchange 2013 customers are due an upgrade


Why is Hosted Exchange changing?

Exchange Server 2013 is officially reaching the end of its lifespan, with support ending this year what does this mean? Well, Microsoft will no longer provide the following:

  • Technical support for problems that may occur.
  • Bug fixes for issues that may impact the stability and usability of the server.
  • Security fixes for vulnerabilities that may make the server vulnerable to security breaches. 

We're upgrading you to Microsoft 365

With Microsoft 365, you get access to large and resilient mailboxes equipped with advanced security features such as anti-spam and antimalware protection. Microsoft apps like SharePoint Online, OneDrive & Teams enable better collaboration while Focused Inbox keeps correspondence organised. Get the added advantage of Viva Insights analytics too!


What is an Email Migration? What is involved in a Migration?

During an email migration, your mailboxes are simply moved from one email service to another, such as from hosted Exchange 2013 to Exchange Online in Microsoft 365.

It's a relatively simple process, SMS migrates all your mailboxes and settings over to Microsoft 365. We then send you instructions on how to access your new mailbox, including a temporary password, how to update it and how to set up your device.

Normally migrating mail costs anywhere from £20-£50/mailbox but for a limited time, SMS is waiving that fee. So you will benefit from a vastly improved service with no additional migration cost.

I'm not sure which plan to move to?

We highly recommend the Microsoft 365 Business Standard solution. It offers the best value and is the package most of our customers choose. Business Standard provides a like-for-like Exchange mailbox experience and offers the latest versions of Office Desktop, OneDrive, and Teams. It is fully compatible with PCs, Macs, iPhones, and Android devices, and it can even be accessed anywhere by using a web browser. This really is a highly competitive, future-proof package delivered from the most secure data centres in the world.

However, we realise that in the business environment, enhanced productivity sometimes is secondary to budget considerations. To this end, we have alternative products, Microsoft 365 Business Basic, and Exchange Online Plan 1.

The table below summarises the differences between the three products. Once you have read this and made a choice please click this link. If you're looking for further advice, please feel free to contact sales on 01925 818448 or alternatively email:
