BENEFITS OF MICROSOFT EXCHANGE

Reasons why you should use Microsoft Exchange

MS EXCHANGE SERVER is an e-mail-based collaborative communications server designed to interoperate with Microsoft Outlook/Entourage, Microsoft Outlook Web Access (OWA Webmail) and various mobile devices such as Windows Mobile handhelds. Unlike regular POP3 email, Exchange accounts include integrated collaborative messaging features that extend e-mail to include scheduling, contact management, folder sharing, and task management functionality.

ENHANCED SECURITY

Microsoft Exchange was designed for optimal security and privacy, with a variety of features at both the server and mailbox level. Microsoft  Exchange Server uses Kerberos authentication, a network security protocol that provides mutual authentication for a network connection. Additional security protocol support includes Secure/Multipurpose Internet Mail Extensions (S/MIME), enabling users to digitally sign and encrypt e-mails and attachments or to access their mailboxes securely, without a VPN connection, when working outside company firewalls. Anti-spam features include support of real-time Safe and Block lists and both server-side and client-side message filtering in Outlook to help reduce the amount of unsolicited junk e-mail messages.

SHARED CALENDARS

Exchange Server includes rich features for personal, group, and resource scheduling that integrates with e-mail, contacts, and tasks. Users can share their calendar information with others and view multiple calendars simultaneously to send meeting requests for shared open times. Recipients can decline or propose a different time, or accept and have the meeting automatically entered in their calendars. Schedules for shared resources like conference rooms and projectors may also be incorporated.

SHARED CONTACTS

Contacts in the company directory (Global Address List or GAL) are centrally maintained for sharing throughout the organization and can be downloaded to Outlook and synchronized for access from Outlook Web Access (OWA) and Outlook Mobile Access (OMA). Distribution lists also can be centrally shared and maintained to facilitate communication to groups such as departments or customer lists.

SHARED TASK MANAGEMENT

A task list provides the ability to create and assign tasks and can be integrated with e-mail notification and scheduling for basic project management and personal time management. Users can track progress as a task moves from active to complete to overdue, while managing status through various criteria like the person responsible and the category.

ANTI-VIRUS AND ANTI-SPAM PROTECTION

Fresh Email eliminates spam by offering you reliable and redundant filters that stop spam. Our state-of-the-art multi layered clustered appliance defense system make sure that your email server do not fall prey to mail spam, viruses, phishing attempts or other virtual threats and promise you 100% availability.
