Microsoft Exchange

Connecting Your Workforce with Email, Calendars, and More


Email is still a vital part of modern business, and Microsoft Exchange is still the definitive solution for business email communications. Microsoft Exchange provides the back-end foundation for a business’s Outlook application. It delivers email, calendars, contacts, meetings, tasks, and other features to connect your workforce and enable clear communication.

Mindsight’s highly trained engineers can help you migrate, upgrade, or replace your Exchange server.

Three Styles of Microsoft Exchange

Exchange ActiveSync; MAPI/HTTP
Under the ActiveSync model, emails are not directly downloaded onto the laptop, PC, or phone. Rather, the device displays information drawn from the Exchange server. When connected to the network, the inbox will automatically sync with the Exchange server and display the most recent messages along with the past emails. However, a user can still read previously viewed emails when offline. The inbox just may not be entirely up to date.

IMAP is very similar to Active Sync. While in both instances, emails are not directly downloaded onto the device and instead are temporarily viewed from the Exchange server, IMAP has limited calendar capabilities. IMAP does not support team collaboration on the calendar feature of Microsoft Outlook.

In a POP email setup, your emails are downloaded and deleted from the Exchange server and saved directly onto your device. The one drawback is in order to read these emails after they are downloaded, the user must access their Outlook application from the same computer.

Features and Benefits of Microsoft Exchange

Enterprise-wide Email
Microsoft Exchange enables any company to host and support an enterprise-wide email application. Send, receive, and archive emails as your business grows. Large inbox capacities allow your team to save and archive all the information they need for reference moving forward.

Shared Calendars and Contacts
The Exchange server will also house your database of calendars and contacts. Your team will be able to schedule meetings and organize their week on shared calendars found in the Microsoft Outlook application.

Built-in Security Measures
Microsoft Exchange and Outlook are equipped with multiple anti-spam and anti-malware security measures. These systems help protect against some of the most common security threats facing your business.

Ease of Management
The web-based Exchange Admin center provides a clear, easy-to-use interface when managing your Exchange server. User roles can even be established to help delegate and solidify responsibilities.
