Microsoft Exchange is Microsoft’s mail server application. Exchange handles more email for corporations than any other mail application. As Unified Communications (UC) continues to gain tremendous momentum, Exchange becomes even more important as it is the core to UC. The underlying Microsoft message for Exchange has always been about collaborating and sharing information; with co-workers, vendors, customers, with anyone.
The latest release is Microsoft Exchange Server 2010. Exchange 2010 continues lowering IT costs with flexible and reliable messaging, increasing productivity by being accessible anywhere, and mitigating risk by enhanced security features.
Exchange is available on-premise and hosted. The following are the primary technologies delivered via Exchange:
- Voicemail with Unified Messaging
- Mailbox Resiliency
- Outlook Web Access
- Management Tools
- Information Protection and Control
- Archiving, Retention, and Discovery
