How difficult is it to switch to Microsoft Exchange? And is it worth it for my needs?
Basically, my business partner will be taking a much smaller role and I need to be able to keep track of what he's getting done in his new limited position. Right now, we use imap for our inboxes, sent folders, and drafts, while almost all other folders are localized in order to avoid a crazy sync time on our mobiles. From the end of this month on, I will need access to his email account and it needs to be clear who answered what email (me or him) in real time. I'd like to be able to have access to all his folders on my phone. Thing is, he has like 1gb of mail from over the years. We also need a collaborative to-do list that's able to be edited (with notes added) by either person. This list should be able to both have set dates/times and allow for items with no specific date. The to-do list will pretty much consist of calls that need to be made by him, as well as follow-up emails he needs to remember to send.
I mentioned how we're currently dealing with email, but I'm also not really liking our current collaborative to-do list set-up, which is Evernote
I'm wondering if Microsoft Exchange is my best option? And how difficult it is to set up and convert folders over, including localized ones in Thunderbird, given my limited needs listed above. I've also briefly looked at Google Apps for Business. How do either of those two options deal with syncing on Android? ie do all email folders sync at specific intervals? I'd imagine this would take forever.
Thanks very much.
