Microsoft Exchange Server is Microsoft’s email, calendaring, contact, scheduling and collaboration platform. It is deployed on the Windows Server operating system (OS) for business use. Microsoft designed Exchange Server to give users access to the messaging platform from mobile devices, desktops and web-based systems. Telephony capabilities in Exchange Server support voice messages.

Exchange Server is an enterprise-class collaboration product that primarily focuses on sending, receiving and storing email messages. In addition to managing messaging traffic, Exchange Server provides several other collaboration features, like calendaring, and tight integration with other Microsoft Office applications.

Exchange Server is known for its high availability (HA) features that ensure continued service in different outage scenarios. This includes design paths that can ensure service during single-server failures or data center outages.

The 2019 release provides significantly faster and more reliable failover between servers. It was designed to improve overall performance and take advantage of the latest storage hardware, including larger disks and solid-state drives (SSDs).

Additional features in Exchange server 2019 include :
provides support for up to 256 GB of memory and 48 CPU cores.
enables installations on Windows Server Core.
enables external access to Exchange admin center (EAC) and the Exchange Management Shell to be blocked natively.
employs dynamic memory cache allocation to optimize memory usage for active databases.
prevents attendees from forwarding meeting invitations.

Provides end users with additional Out of Office options.
enables administrators to cancel meetings that were organized by a user who has left the company.
enables administrators to assign delegate permissions and
enables email addresses that contain non-English characters to be routed and delivered natively.

Exchange Server has several important features to maintain resilience and HA. The mailbox server components of Exchange rely on database availability groups (DAGs). Client access server components rely on load balancing.

Exchange 2016 removed the ability to install separate Exchange Server roles on separate physical servers except for the Edge Transport role. Exchange Server 2016 was first released Oct. 1, 2015, as build 15.01.0225.042.

Exchange Server was first released in a private preview in 1993. In 1996, the first publicly available version of Exchange Server was released as Exchange 4.0. The 4.0 version number in the first release of Exchange was meant to signify it was the upgrade from Microsoft Mail 3.5, but these were two drastically different programs. Exchange 4.0 used the X.500 protocol for directory services and mail delivery.

In 1997, Exchange 5.0 was released. This was the first version of Exchange to feature Simple Mail Transfer Protocol (SMTP) as the mail server delivery protocol. SMTP made Exchange 5.0 the first version able to communicate with other messaging platforms across the internet. Exchange 5.0 also introduced OWA in Exchange 5.0 in a post-release service pack.

Exchange 5.5 was released less than a year after Exchange 5.0 and was the first version of Exchange to come in Standard and Enterprise editions. Exchange 5.5 also included the introduction of recovery for deleted items and support for Internet Message Access Protocol 4 (IMAP4) and Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP) v3 clients.

Exchange Server 2000 was released two years later to coincide with the release of AD. Exchange 2000 included an Instant Messaging feature that was later spun off to Office Communications Server. Exchange Server 2000 was not widely adopted.

Exchange Server 2003 was a huge step forward for Exchange, both in functionality and adoption. Exchange Server 2003 started the trend of differentiating different Exchange servers to meet different functions. While the same software was installed on all Exchange servers, 2003 did support the idea of designating some servers as front-end servers to host client connections. Exchange 2003 also made migrations from previous versions of Exchange much easier by enabling the coexistence of 2003 servers in organizations that were still running previous versions.

Exchange Server 2007 was another major version that included a lot of new functionality. At release, Exchange 2007 did not support public folders, but that support was returned with Service Pack 1 (SP1) after customer complaints. Exchange 2007 was the first major Microsoft product to fully embrace PowerShell. For the first time, all functionality of Exchange was available as PowerShell commands, although some functionality did not have graphical user interface (GUI) controls.

Frequently Asked Questions

Instructional methods, course requirements, and learning technologies can vary significantly from one online program to the next, but the vast bulk of them use a learning management system (LMS) to deliver lectures and materials, monitor student progress, assess comprehension, and accept student work. LMS providers design these platforms to accommodate a multitude of instructor needs and preferences.

Online education may seem relatively new, but years of research suggests it can be just as effective as traditional coursework, and often more so. According to a U.S. Department of Education analysis of more than 1,000 learning studies, online students tend to outperform classroom-based students across most disciplines and demographics. Another major review published the same year found that online students had the advantage 70 percent of the time, a gap authors projected would only widen as programs and technologies evolve.

All new learning innovations are met with some degree of scrutiny, but skepticism subsides as methods become more mainstream. Such is the case for online learning. Studies indicate employers who are familiar with online degrees tend to view them more favorably, and more employers are acquainted with them than ever before. The majority of colleges now offer online degrees, including most public, not-for-profit, and Ivy League universities. Online learning is also increasingly prevalent in the workplace as more companies invest in web-based employee training and development programs.

The concern that online students cheat more than traditional students is perhaps misplaced. When researchers at Marshall University conducted a study to measure the prevalence of cheating in online and classroom-based courses, they concluded, “Somewhat surprisingly, the results showed higher rates of academic dishonesty in live courses.” The authors suggest the social familiarity of students in a classroom setting may lessen their sense of moral obligation.

Choosing the right course takes time and careful research no matter how one intends to study. Learning styles, goals, and programs always vary, but students considering online courses must consider technical skills, ability to self-motivate, and other factors specific to the medium. Online course demos and trials can also be helpful.
Our platform is typically designed to be as user-friendly as possible: intuitive controls, clear instructions, and tutorials guide students through new tasks. However, students still need basic computer skills to access and navigate these programs. These skills include: using a keyboard and a mouse; running computer programs; using the Internet; sending and receiving email; using word processing programs; and using forums and other collaborative tools. Most online programs publish such requirements on their websites. If not, an admissions adviser can help.
