If you have been itching to try Microsoft’s new web based mail offering, itch no more. The beta is now open to the public.
In a nutshell, its Exchange server, Sharepoint server, Lync server and Office web apps all rolled into one. Microsoft does the hosting for you so you don’t need to worry about it. According to their site, subscriptions start at about $7.00 per month but for the time of the beta, its all free. I created my account, my email is todd -at- rock.onmicrosoft.com
I am going to test it out for a while, redirecting email to this one and I’ll see how it works out.
