Overall Satisfaction with Microsoft Exchange

We use Microsoft Exchange as our primary method of email communication for internal business users, contact center agents, and for business-to-customer interactions.
  • Microsoft Exchange offers the best integration with Active Directory.
  • Microsoft Exchange offers a great web management interface for administrators.
  • Microsoft Exchange web services provide key functionality on how we integrate emails into ACD workgroup queues for customer support purposes.
  • Microsoft Exchange could use more canned mail filtering tools to block spam.
  • Microsoft Exchange should include it's own quarantine solution.
  • Microsoft Exchange requires external recipients to become Exchange mail contacts before you can add those recipients to a distribution group.
  • We are actively using and consuming the Exchange mail server platform and our user and mail volume scale is a moving target. The ROI is a break-even scenario to get the job done.
  • We might see a bigger return if we had more mobile users, but that's just not how we are structured.
  • Our setup is premise-based, so we have very little external work-from-home users that would increase our benefits of Exchange's mobility tools.
We are 100% a Microsoft shop from top to bottom, so for us, Exchange is the best in the business. It wouldn't make sense to integrate another vendor.
Microsoft Exchange is well suited for a business that can afford the pricing structure, as well as afford the additional costs to improve mail server security.
