We are searching for an Exchange 2010 hosting provider in the UK and would appreciate recommendations? We currently use Rackspace, so we're not especially looking for the cheapest provider. The reason we're moving away from them is that they only provide Exchange 2007. As an exclusively Mac office, we require Exchange 2010 for full functionality.
We came across Cobweb Solutions. They seem to offer a very affordable service at £3.29 per mailbox, with no surcharge for ActiveSync (used for iPhones - pay £2/month extra for this feature alone at Rackspace), but were put off by the slow web site and unexplained errors in the order process.

Jay, it turns out that you actually *did* take my order, you just didn't show me a confirmation screen. You also provided me with Exchange 2007 despite the web site stating otherwise. I'm thus unable to make use of your service and have been trying my best to cancel it. You are *beyond* incompetent.
With regards to my needs, I have decided, having not been able to find any serious providers, to do it myself. I am renting a VMWare cloud environment from a long-term and trusted supplier and I am purchasing the Windows and Exchange licenses and managing the whole lot myself. Unbelievable that I have to resort to this, really.
