  2. A third of major in-house email outages leave staff without email for more than 24 hours.
  3. 35% of email outages come as a result of server failure.

Email is now an essential business tool, so downtime is a serious problem. This is why companies are increasingly turning to ‘hosted’ Microsoft Exchange. Here are four compelling reasons:
