We’ll Pay for Your Upgrade to Apple’s Snow Leopard OS!

Update Feb 1, 2010: This promotion will end on February 28, 2010

We thought we would generously build some press around the launch of Apple’s new operating system for their popular computers. We know Steve Jobs has a tough time getting attention so we are going to build some excitement for him. And what better way to do that than giving Snow Leopard[1] upgrades away for free?

The new version of Mac Mail that ships today with Snow Leopard natively supports Exchange 2007[2].  Sign up for Microsoft Exchange[3] as a new Rackspace Email & Apps customer and we’ll pay for each Snow Leopard upgrade used to access one of your Hosted Exchange mailboxes. We’re paying for up to 1,000 Snow Leopard upgrade licenses so don’t miss out! We’ll credit your account $29 on day one for each mailbox accessed by a Mac. How cool is that?  As if you needed another reason to sign up for our world class service!

Now you have an easy way to upgrade your company to the latest and greatest Mac operating system on our nickel! And you’ll get Microsoft Exchange service available for less than it would cost to run an Exchange server in house. You’ll enjoy all the power of Exchange native to your Mac without any of the headaches.

And with any luck our promotion will help Apple get their new OS noticed!

Your Next Steps and the Fine Print

Rackspace Email & Apps will reimburse new customers $29 (regardless of price paid) for each Hosted Exchange mailbox that is accessed by a Mac computer running the Snow Leopard (OS X 10.6) operating system.

Only Microsoft Exchange mailboxes accessed by Mac computers and purchased in the new customer’s initial order will qualify for this promotion.  Rackspace Email & Apps reserves the right to end this promotion at any time.  If you have additional questions please engage us online[5].
