in the USA, at least.
There's Google Apps from Google, Lotus Live iNotes from IBM and Exchange Online from Microsoft. It's remarkably cheap: around USD 40 a year per user. That can't be called an arm and a leg, can it?
One thing that I really need to do is be able to check my calendar and my tasks from other computers, sometimes I'm out, at a client's place and I think it would be neat to jump on a computer and just check what i'm doing and calibrate myself.
Now I know Microsoft has this thing called Exchange but I have a feeling they're going to charge me an arm and a leg, and I also know there are a couple of software packages (ScheduleWorld is one I've tried) that attempt to do this for cheaper but the ones I have tried are rubbish.
The question I have is how would you do it? Just imagine you want Outlook on another computer, I'm thinking like a cloud application, and before I leave my computer it could automatically upload all my data to a server from where I can access it later (not uploading images or big e-mails, just the text of e-mails, tasks and calendar items).
Surely that is not difficult and OUT THERE and I really don't understand why this service should be paid for, especially considering things like Gmail are completely free, so syncing them should not be a problem.
Anyway, if anyone knows what best course I should take or what they use themselves please let me know.
