Mailboxes and calendaring
The reason why we feel it is important to identify these core workloads is because they
each have unique configuration options, address specific security issues, and have elements
used to define the different models of Exchange hybrid deployments that we will address in
greater detail later in this chapter as well as in Chapter 11.
Mailboxes and calendaring
The primary mailbox is where the Inbox folder, which is the default email storage location,
is located. Other system-created folders that reside in the primary mailbox include Drafts,
Sent Items, Deleted Items, Junk Mail, and Outbox. Users can create other folders in the
primary mailbox based on their organization needs and preferences. They can also create
rules to automatically store incoming emails in any of the folders.
The primary mailbox is also where the calendar items reside. If the UM role is used and if
Lync is configured to store conversations, then it creates a Stored Conversations folder in
the primary mailbox and Lync conversations are stored in that folder.
From a search perspective, the content stored in the primary mailbox enjoys the benefit of
the new, always up-to-date mode, which means search performance and results are
significantly improved over previous versions of Exchange.
Calendaring is the other significant capability that people rely on. Not only do Exchange
Online calendars help you organize your day, they enable you to schedule meetings by
allowing you to check on the availability of other people and resources.
INSIDE OUT Email client vs. email server
Exchange Online is where content is stored and synchronized. It should not be confused
with an email client. Examples of email clients are Microsoft Outlook, Apple iMessage
and iCalendar applications, and even a browser. Outlook and Exchange are built to
provide all the capabilities and maximize your email experience. However, it is important to
note that Exchange Online supports more than just the Outlook email client. Through
industry standard protocols such as ActiveSync, Post Office Protocol (POP), Internet
Message Access Protocol (IMAP), and (Hypertext Transfer Protocol Secure) HTTPS,
Exchange Online provides access to email and calendaring capabilities for many
different devices, including non-Microsoft-based devices and clients.
