Hi Diane,

I've been using iCloud (v. 2.1.3) with Outlook 2007 and Code Two iCloud Sync for a few years now. Aside from from some alarm issues, it's been working well.

A friend of mine is using Exchange instead of iCloud and really likes it. I was wondering if you could explain the pros and cons of using Exchange vs iCloud (with Code Two)?

Also, I have Pop 3 email, and I would love to duplicate and sync my Outlook email folders on my iPad and iPhone. Don't know if this is possible with Exchange?

Thanks,
Dawn

Exchange will sync to the ipad and iPhone (or android, windows phone) - it will also sync to multiple computers, with an identical mailbox on each computer.

The pros: over the air sync. Cons: it's not free, works best if you use your own domain name. As long as you own the domain the pop3 account is on, you can move it to exchange.

Diane,

I do own the domain(s). So that's one less thing to worry about.

Microsoft is only charging $4.00 per month for each Exchange account, so it's not terribly expensive.

Thanks.

That'll work then - yeah, at $4 a month, it's well worth it.
