Microsoft Exchange Online Benefits

A better approach for them to use Exchange Online was to have the host serve us in a cloud service. Functionality wise, I can't really say it's improved from Exchange Online, I think it's not so much change on-premise. It's about the same. Other than that, it's the extra features that make a difference, really. I think with Exchange, it's a lot of integration functionality with the Skype for business. It's quite accepted if you like an almost-defective standard. Especially in the region that we email them, definitely in the Asia-Pacific region or at least Oceania region. It's really easy to use. The the room and shared mailbox functionality that people use, it just all really works well together. View full review »

The management is very simple, using Exchange Online. So basically you just start a license. So that way, management is very simple. View full review »

There are two aspects to the improvement of our organization. First, is the data reliability, the ability for an administrator to provide data which has been in the user's mailbox. For example, if someone lost the email because of inadvertently deleting the emails, or anything, any object inside the inbox, whether it's a contact or a folder or an email. The admin can actually go and restore that information quite easily, rather than any other solution. Second, the mobility of the solution helps solve issues with information access across varied platforms. This has helped us if there are issues concerning emails that must be recovered due to legal issues, and the like. View full review »

From the security point of view, you can specify the IP range from the area your system should be connected. You can have the authentication based on the user certificates of your Active Directory. This improves the security, as well. There is a flawless integration. This is something I like about Exchange. View full review »

Previously, we hosted our email servers with GoDaddy. We migrated the email addresses to Office 365 and we enabled mailboxes in Exchange Online and we now manage the email focus from our side. I administrate this for our company through Microsoft Exchange. View full review »

In terms of mail, it is on the cloud and there is a lot of dependency on the internal server, which is not exactly great. The online version is faster, as it is a cloud instance. We can have massive mailbox capacity: 100 GB per user, which is huge. We can't provision such capacity internally, as the company would get burnt out paying for mailbox storage. You have no idea how relieved the Fortune 500 company mail admins were with this. View full review »
