What is Outlook Exchange?
Microsoft Exchange Server is a messaging and collaboration software product, commonly referred to a Groupware. Exchange’s major features consist of electronic mail, shared calendars and tasks, public folders, and support for mobile and web-based access to information, as well as supporting large amounts of data storage. Exchange is accessed via the full featured Microsoft Outlook client or Outlook Web Access from a browser such as Internet Explorer.
Outlook is a personal information manager application that is part of the Microsoft Office suite. It is primarily viewed as an E-mail application; it also provides a calendar, task and contact management, note taking and a journal. It can be used as a stand-alone application, but it can also operate in conjunction with Microsoft Exchange Server to provide enhanced functions for multiple users such as shared mailboxes and calendars, public folder and scheduling meetings.
