Lately on our radar

1st October 2015
Exchange 2016 has been released. This version comes with many improvements on both the client and server sides. We will be launching a new enviroment for this great product within the next few weeks.
30th September 2015
OSX El Capitan has been released by Apple. Outlook 2011 and 2016 for Mac users beware: there have been many reports of Outlook crashing or just not starting on this new version of OSX with no fix as of yet from either Microsoft or Apple.
11th February 2015
Ok, so Microsoft have released their Outlook IOS app for general consumption. Get yours now and you will notice just how similar it looks to Acompli - why make your own when you can just buy another company.
2nd December 2014
We've been using the IOS mail app Acompli as a replacement for the default email application that ships with IOS devices and must say it is really good. Microsoft's recent acquisition of Acompli now confirms that this is a product worth using. We are especially fond of the Dropbox integration, making it easy to send files via email from your IOS phone or tablet.
31st March 2014
Microsoft has officially launched their new touch-enabled iPad and Android Office apps. Downloadable for free from the relevant app store, Databias users will only be able to view Word, Excel and Powerpoint documents on their tablets and phones due to Microsoft restricting editing to Office365 customers only.

We're proud to announce a FREE bulk mailing system to all hosted customers. Email up to 5000 recipients with our beta software code-named LAVAmail. Contact us today for training and access to this awesome new tool.

Been using the new iPhone iOS 7 (7.0.2) for a few weeks now and loving it! Icons you could eat and improved speed are just the start. The new gestures in the Mail app are the real highlight for us; learn about it here.
1st August 2013
We often get asked which of the latest smart phones we recommend for use with our Exchange service. In terms of ActiveSync functionality, Windows Phone 8 devices win hands down, although BlackBerry 10 is a close second. See a complete list of features and corporate policy support here
7th June 2013
Databias would like to assure customers that the American government (or any government or other organisation for that matter) has no access to our infrastructure in any way. Your data is safe with us, unlike other companies. More on this matter can be read here.
