Exchange Online is the hosted email service in Office 365 based on Microsoft Exchange
technology. Microsoft Exchange Server technology is a mature and full-featured
platform that debuted in 1996. The primary role of Exchange Online is to facilitate email
communications and provide calendaring and scheduling capabilities.
There are many hosted email services available in the marketplace today; some are even
free of charge. However, unlike most hosted email services, Exchange is built for the
enterprise and thus includes the required enterprise controls. The following are a few examples
of the enterprise controls available with Exchange and Exchange Online:
Mail journaling
Messaging Records Management (MRM)
Custom routing and handling
Secure messaging
Legal Hold, which has been renamed In-Place Hold
Multi-mailbox electronic discovery (eDiscovery)
Voice mail integration with Exchange Unified Messaging (UM)
Exchange Online is based on the equivalent on-premises Exchange technology. At the
time of this writing, Exchange Online is based on the Exchange Server 2010 technology.
Exchange 2013 was recently released to manufacturing (RTM); thus, Exchange Online will
be upgraded accordingly. In fact, Microsoft announced that all new Office 365 customers
after February 27, 2013 will be provisioned with Exchange 2013. Existing Office 365
customers still on the Exchange 2010 platform will be upgraded.
