Microsoft Exchange Support and Maintenance

What is Microsoft Exchange?

Microsoft Exchange Server is the premier business email server from Microsoft. Small companies to companies of thousands of employees use Microsoft Server for their business email. Exchange Server is more than just email. It supports common storage folders called public folders and even has some features to support instant messenger and voice mail type messaging.

The Perfect Match for Microsoft Outlook

Microsoft Outlook is the Windows email program that will help you get the most out of Microsoft Exchange Server. Microsoft Exchange also includes a web browser based version called Outlook Web Access or OWA. It doesn't allow all the functionality of the Outlook program for Windows but allows you to send and receive email from any computer you have access to, even if its not your normal work computer.

Hosted Exchange

Exchange server can be expensive to setup and maintain. For companies that don't want to spend money upfront, Hosted Exchanged is an option. Hosted Exchange is an Exchanged server which is physically in a commercial data center and shared between multiple companies. Your email is still completely secure, private and provides a management access for just your company. You get Microsoft Exchange without the upfront cost or maintenance for a low monthly cost. The usual price for a Microsoft Exchange server in western Canada is $9 CAD / user / month.

Office 365 Exchange Email

Microsoft has decided to get in the cloud services business and now offer Exchange like email very much like Hosted Exchange all at a much lower price. If you are using Windows 8 or higher or Microsoft Windows Server 2012 or higher, Office 365 is your best choice. Office 365 comes in different packages. The basic business package is called Office 365 Business Essentials and includes both a Exchange mailbox and 1 TB of cloud storage. Office 365 Business Essentials is around ~$6 CAD / user / month here in Canada. To find out more about Office 365 and what it can do for your company, visit

I have collaborated with Darvin on several breakthroughs and forward-looking IT projects to which he ALWAYS came through with a solution where there appeared not to be as concepts were more advanced than current technologies.

His thought processes is methodical and detailed, approach is ethical and professional and solutions driven. He deliverers what he said he would, on time and on budget.

When we use Helia they exceed our expected deliverables and always within our agreed to budget. They work with us, not just for us, all the while keeping our best interests as a company at the core of the project.

We had been looking for a company that not only could get the job done as promised, on time and on budget but one that came with integrity. Helia provides us with a "mean what you say and say what you mean" attitude that has forged a relationship, not just a contract for a project. Our partners at Helia far exceed our expectations each and every time. So if you're thinking of using Helia, I would highly recommend you give them a try, I am sure you'll be impressed. Please email me if you'd like some more insight into Helia.

Ryan Dockrill

Helia has been fabulous for us as a company. We have used them on five different projects now, and I am extremely impressed not only with the quality of the deliverables, but in some ways more importantly their can-do attitude and ability to implement our ideas when others thought them impossible.

I recommend them whole heartedly. Helia Technologies is a company that over-delivers on every aspect of the project at hand at a price point that is hard to beat.

Please email me if you have any questions about Helia Technologies.

"Darvin and the folks at Helia were asked to resolve some issues with our phone system software. They provided the necessary support through collaboration and by learning the software from a different market to specifically service our system. Additionally, Helia now provides our IT support services. We are very pleased with the services provided by Helia Tech and Helia Voice."

I have worked with Dar on many occasions and he has proven himself over and over again to be a man of integrity and someone who is very knowledgable in his field. I would strongly encourage you to talk to him regarding IT Support and phones services in Alberta.

Al Dhalla

My company has hired Dar for telephone wiring services and yes, he met our expectations but there is something more about Dar that I wish to highlight : He is a not just a true networker but I would say, he is a "connector".

Dar and I have been at many meetings and he has never failed to say to me that he wants me to meet 3 or 4 people that he knows are ideal clients for me and that will make a difference to my business and profits.Without expecting any favors too! Dar goes that extra mile to keep a business relationship nurtured and strengthened.

Ted Tederoff

Darvin is a very well rounded contributor in terms of his strong skills both in the business and technical realms. He also has an engaging personality that is at the same time politely confident and warm. He also keeps all stakeholders in mind when delivering a project. I would count it an honour to work with him again in the future.

Derek Herman

Apart from being a perfect gentleman , Darvin is a highly detailed IT perfectionist.A pleasure to work with.
