What’s New In Rackspace Hosted Exchange 2013


Stop spending your valuable time managing your company’s email. With Rackspace Hosted Exchange 2013, which is now general availability, you can let the specialists do it for you. You’ll get the same reliable and secure business email that you expect, with the added bonus of the largest mailboxes in the industry and our award-winning Fanatical Support.

There’s no denying that mail is an integral part of your business – it should do what you want it to do. Rackspace Hosted Exchange 2013 adds a host of features that make dealing with email less of a hassle, while maintaining the capabilities that make it a breeze.

What’s New

  1. Bigger is better: Hosted Exchange 2013 from Rackspace boasts 100GB mailboxes and the ability to send attachments up to 50MB.
  2. Customize it: With Hosted Exchange 2013 we put the power back in your hands, giving IT administrators the ability to customize the mailbox size for each user anywhere from 1GB to 100GB. The days of multiple requests for increasing storage (and costs!) for executives or members of the sales team who missed a deal because their inbox was full are behind you, the mailbox can grow with your users.
  3. Set size limits: You also have the ability to limit the mailbox size for users, and all within the same domain.

What Hasn’t Changed

While Hosted Exchange 2013 boasts a bunch of new features, we’ve kept the good stuff. You can still save valuable time and expertise focusing on business-specific applications rather than stability, upgrades and spam and virus protection. Rackspace Hosted Exchange 2013 includes a financially backed SLA with an unmatched uptime commitment and three layers of spam and virus filters. We do the heavy lifting for you. That includes everything from managing servers and creating easy management tools to providing a seamless migration experience.

    Can existing rackspace exchange users migrate to Exchange 2013?

    • Brooke Jackson

      Hi Jeremy, Definitely. You can chat, call or put in a ticket to request an upgrade to Exchange 2013. We’re doing them each and every day.

  • J Men

    What is the plan for the 2010 side?

    • Brooke Jackson

      Exchange 2010 is operating and maintained normally. We have many 2010 customers that have already requested a migration to 2013 and we are actively moving their mailboxes. New products added to our portfolio will be compatible with Exchange 2013. Let me know if you’d like to talk about it further brooke.jackson at

    How about the ability to specify a smarthost? Many people need this for encryption and HIPAA compliance…

  • Thomas Zickell

    Did you guys think of changing the seven-day limit on possible spam virus before deletion? The reason I ask is it’s kind of a downer to have something that you haven’t checked be deleted especially in the beginning.

    I love your exchange hosting and would like to see more control on the antivirus side in 2013 exchange

  • Dean Massey

    Same Question as Brandon Chapman how about HIPAA compliance? I have a lot of clients that need encryption E-Mail.

  • Tristam Sculthorpe

    Does rackspace give you the ability to file your emails so that your email file system conforms to your company’s file system as per clients, projects, programs etc.?

  • Maverick

    Are public folders still an option in Exchange 2013? We have quite a few in our 2010 environment
