Default Hosted BES Recommendations?

Please Login to Remove!

I've been whinging for some time about lack of access to email subfolders without BES. Looks like I'll have to bite the bullet and pony up for a hosted BES solution. Does anybody have a recommendation, or even a warning about who to avoid? Prices all look about the same, within a couple bucks a month. Clearly uptime for the service is key. Having a BlackBerry but no access to email is a fail.

Of secondary interest to me is any information on how these hosted solutions work for Mac users, but that's not my priority.

I seem to remember exchangemymail.com being good...

Have you considered using outlook.com as your e-mail provider though?

I have an outlook.com account but it's been my spam account for too many years. Online shopping, signing up for services through retailers, etc. I'm not about to undertake swapping primary accounts after two decades of the same MobileMe/iCloud address being my primary.

I just created another one, and switched from my Gmail (which I've had since beta). I simply forward everything to outlook.com, and people get the new address when I reply.

Outlook.com may be a good alternative. Information on the web site does indicate you can keep spam out and limit what is forwarded to the phone. I just set up an email address and forwarded a Yahoo account and it seems to be good on the Z10.
