Overall Satisfaction with Microsoft Exchange

Microsoft Exchange is our choice for our messaging platform. It is utilized by the entire organization (approx 45,000 seats). Microsoft Exchange provides a platform for communication as well as file sharing and collaboration. It also provides calendaring, contact management, task management, and notes management.
  • Calendaring - Exchange is great at managing meetings and appointments. It provides the ability to look at attendees' free/busy data so you can effectively plan meetings based on many busy schedules.
  • Web mail interface is easy to navigate and provides users with a rich experience. Many users do not require a fat client.
  • Mobility - Exchange provides the ability to synchronize your mobile devices with your account so you can easily take your mailbox with you.
  • Updating the environment can be cumbersome. As your environment grows the amount of time required to patch or update can be challenging.
  • Calendar corruption, we have experienced challenges with calendars staying sync' between mobile devices. Meeting corruption can be difficult to clean up.
  • Increased employee efficiency
  • Mobility
  • Message archival
Have used Exchange since Exchange 5.5 (1999)
Microsoft Exchange is an enterprise messaging solution. For smaller organizations this may be too much and they may not have the necessary resources to effectively administer the solution.
