MailGate is well suited for organizations that have sensitive information with the need to securely transport via email, it is less appropriate for larger organizations as the overhead for administrators becomes more complex

Microsoft Exchange's (formerly) eDiscovery and legal holds features make it an excellent choice for businesses who need to comply with legal or regulatory mandates regarding the retention of electronic communications. Exchange's easily accessible online resources and user-friendly interface and principles make it a good choice for businesses in need of many mailboxes and resources but with few administrators who have experience with SMTP and messaging.

Cons

Axway MailGate SC

  • External storage configuration is complex to set up
  • Customer support is average, can be slow depending on the type of issue or request
Anonymous | TrustRadius Reviewer

Microsoft Exchange

  • Identifying the source of an issue and fixing it can be challenging. Some of the problems that develop in Exchange are not obvious, even to seasoned administrators.
  • The hardware and, more significantly, the software needed for such exchange are expensive.
  • You don't want a newbie to put this up or manage it. Skilled administrators with knowledge of Microsoft Exchange are required.

It is the best, and perhaps only, email solution worth considering.

Microsoft Exchange is well suited for inexperienced Messaging Admins and veterans alike. If you have no idea of the fundamentals of modern email (SMTP, mail headers, MX Records, SPF/DKIM, Encryption, etc.) and just need to get people's mailboxes and calendars the support they need, you can use it with confidence. If you are an old pro and want to leverage and dovetail your Powershell and AD with Exchange, you will be rewarded for your efforts.

We have a good enterprise agreement with Microsoft which affords us quick phone support. I have found the support staff knowledgeable and prompt with a solution when required. At times it may be difficult to schedule a call back, this is mainly due to our need for calls early in the morning which happens to be during a shift change at Microsoft support.

Implementation/conversion can be quite complex and, unless you have certified Exchange administrators in-house, you should strongly consider a 3rd party consultant for this implementation.

MailGate works well with administrative control and ease of use for setting up TLS connectivity between clients

The Microsoft Exchange solution outpaced our legacy solution by far. The strong requirement to keep mail and calendar platforms restricted us to use SaaS solutions. For an on-premise setup, MS Exchange has clearly no competitor equivalent in the market.
