What is Microsoft Exchange?
The Microsoft Exchange server is one of the most popular collaborative messaging servers in the world. This email program includes calendaring software, a mail server and contact manager developed by Microsoft. It is a server program that runs on Windows Server and is from the Microsoft Server line of products. A reseller like 1CS can provide you with a license for Microsoft Exchange and IT services to set it up.
Features of Exchange
Some features in Microsoft Outlook require the user to use a Microsoft Exchange account. Home users typically do not have an Exchange account. Instead they use a POP3 e-mail account with an internet service provider (ISP) or use a web-based e-mail service, such as Windows Live Mail.
- Access email functions and features in Outlook
- Sync your contacts and calendars to webmail, desktop & mobile devices
- Instant search feature by keyword
- Improved assistant allowing start and endpoints for scheduling messages
- Separate email for those recipients outside the company
- Newer functions include: email scheduler, better preview pane, option to view attachments and an RSS feed supporter
Exchange is Secure
One of the top reasons businesses move to a Microsoft Exchange Server, other than the associated account features, is the level of security. Since the server defends against security threats it therefore protects users from hackers, viruses and spam. These security features are included when you get a Microsoft Exchange account.
