For companies yet to make the move to cloud hosting for data services, next week marks an important date as a common version of Microsoft Server 2003 reaches end of life.

On July 14th 2015, Microsoft will end support for Microsoft Server 2003. This will leave thousands of businesses exposed to security threats as the software becomes obsolete. Any Windows Server 2003 machines you have running in your office, they will continue to operate and you can learn more here.

Windows 2003 servers won’t suddenly stop working as soon as support expires. They will keep running and your users will still have access the resources they require. However, there are several issues to be aware of. - See more at: http://www.quartetservice.com/windowsserver2003-endoflife/?gclid=CjwKEAjwlPOsBRCWq5_e973PzTgSJACMiEp2YQyLwM8h5zpLJeke7XzSnX8jumUSlc-_N0lUkI3j4xoC4unw_wcB#sthash.1snvMqgL.dpuf

What options do I have if I'm still running 2003 in-house?
Your IT technician c‎an upgrade you to a more recent version or you can use this as a chance to take advantage of a cloud based exchange service like Thexyz.


What are the advantages to moving my Exchange server to the cloud?
A major advantage is cost, businesses that move to the cloud usually save 4 times as much than when using an in-house server. There is also the advantage of not having to worry about the regular security updates that need to be applied.


What about my existing emails? Will they be lost?
We will perform a full remote email migration that will migrate all existing email, contacts, calendars and tasks from your current Exchange server, to a new 2013 server that is remotely hosted.


Will there be any downtime during the migration?
No, we handle email migrations on a daily basis and have developed a process to ensure all mail is migrated and there is no downtime with email service.


Why should I choose Thexyz for Exchange hosting?
Thexyz has been hosting Exchange email for nearly 10 years and have since made email, our main service offering. With Thexyz you can enjoy. 100% network uptime, 100GB of email storage and send 50MB attachments. ‎


What is the cost for an email migration?
Email migrations are charged at $9.95 per mailbox and can be ordered here. You will also need to get your destination mailboxes setup with Thexyz here.


How long does the email migration process take?
Typically, most accounts are fully migrated within a couple of hours. This can take longer for larger mailboxes. It is rare for a migration to last longer than 24 hours and mailboxes are fully operational during migration process.We can also migrate multiple accounts simultaneously via an excel spreadsheet.


How can I move to hosted exchange and keep my costs to a minimum?
By using exchange with our webmail, you can mix and match a combination of exchange accounts with standard IMAP on the same domain. The advantage here is cost, why pay $14.95 for an exchange mailbox when you only need a particular mailbox to have email access? This way you can purchase our premium email accounts for $1.95 per box instead.
