A lot of law firms outsource their Microsoft Exchange Server to a third-party provider instead of purchasing a server and hosting Microsoft Exchange internally. The advantages are that the third-party absorbs the cost of hardware, software, management, and leaves the law firm with just a monthly investment of $10-$25 per month per user, depending on who the provider is and how much storage / add-ons you elect to have.
