Dedicated Microsoft Exchange case study

Global organisation choose SMS

Background is a full-featured sports book portal, with fixed odds betting available on all of the major global sports including Football, US Sports, Golf, Tennis, Motor Racing amongst others.

Through this portal, customers can also access an instant, download and live dealer casino as well as a suite of fixed-odds games. The organisation approached Simply Mail Solutions after they have decided to upgrade their in-house Microsoft Exchange 2000 server and are currently hosting 80+ users on a dedicated Microsoft Exchange server with SMS.

Why a managed dedicated Microsoft Exchange server?

Having used Exchange before on an in-house solution betinternet. com decided quickly that they wanted to continue using MS Exchange. Main reasons for the decision to stay with MS Exchange were high end results and reliability on their previous in-house Exchange 2000 solution.

Why choose Simply Mail Solutions?

Commented Peter Godwin, Technical Services at

"Considering the amount of users we have, the cost of hosting the latest version of MS Exchange ourselves including hardware, software investments and maintenance were much higher than going with a third party provider like SMS.
After we had done a detailed research of possible providers SMS worked out to be the best solution all around."

How did the installation go?

Peter Goodwin:

"The installation went a lot easier than we expected and the support from Simply Mail Solutions was and still is second to none. All in all, SMS provide a very good package and if we were to setup again from scratch then SMS would be at the top of the list."


By outsourcing their email solution can now, and will in the future, benefit from the latest Exchange version without the heavy investments of an in-house solution.
