Microsoft Bringing Simplicity in Latest Version of Email Hosting Solution Exchange
By Oliver VanDervoort, Contributing Writer
One of the best features of Microsoft (News - Alert) Office 2013 is the newest iteration of the email hosting program Microsoft Exchange 2013. This new email hosting server has quite a few different features that makes this easily the best version of Microsoft has put out there.
The company has also toughened up the security offerings of this newest version of the email hosting program but while there are a ton of new tweaks that make it harder to breach from the outside, there are also some functions that make using this version of the email hosting software that much easier. The best part is that Microsoft Exchange 2013 has a new simplicity that is both included in the deep programming and the way that people are able to use this robust service.
One of the many things that Exchange 2013 powers is the Exchange Administration Console. This particular piece of programming means that the email hosting program has a Web-based GUI. This particular console actually replaces what Exchange has had since 2000, which was known as the Exchange Management Console. The EAC also replaces the Exchange Control Panel (ECP) that has been included since 2010. The brand new EAC has a streamlined look that falls in line with Microsoft Windows 8 that makes it easier to find what you are looking for and complete out the tasks you need in a much quicker time period.
Bringing as much simplification as possible has been the goal for most of the Office 2013 suite, yet it seems that Microsoft has paid special attention to their email hosting solution. The reasons behind this are many including the fact that there are plenty of companies coming after them in this area. It only makes sense to make the email hosting solution easy as possible to use, so people aren’t moving on looking for something just a little simpler.
