Selectmen Present: Eric R. Munson, Jr., Steven DellaGiustina and Thomas Paine
Also Present: Jessica Kelmelis
Minutes of the previous meeting were read and accepted.
Jessica explained two options for Tolland’s email, basic service and collaboration hosted.
The basic service includes 25MB of disk space per user and the Collaboration service includes 1GB of disk space per user. Additional disk space can be purchased for the basic service at $.05 per MB and at $.75 per GB for the collaboration service.
The basic service is used with an email program running on Tolland’s computer. The email is downloaded and removed for Crockers servers and stored on Tolland’s computers. With the collaboration service, the email program is a web mail based program that is run on Tolland’s computer through a web browser like Firefox. The mail is stored on Crockers servers.
The basic service can not perform any type of archiving and archiving can be enabled with the collaboration service. When archiving is enabled, all email is stored as a duplicate copy in another archive mailbox for that email address.
The collaboration service is much more mobile. You can access all your email from any computer with internet and a web browser.
Basic service $19.95/mth collaboration service $123.75/mth.
The Board of Selectmen requested additional financial information and will continue to discuss both plans at their Selectmen’s meeting on Monday, April 07, 2014.
