The email server is down at work. Within two minutes, nervous murmurs could be heard in the office followed by people sticking their heads up in their cubicles looking like lost lambs.

What do you get when Australia’s leading internet challenger joins forces with the world’s leading software provider? iiNet Hosted Exchange: Enterprise-class email for small and medium-sized business, at SMB prices and backed up with award-winning customer service. Just another example of how the cloud is empowering SMBs to work smarter than ever.

Does this mean your Windows-only corporate office will open its doors to Macs? Tell us what you think in the comments.
