Computer Resellers: Benefits of Exchange 12

Supported and endorsed whole-heartedly by computer resellers, Exchange 12 gives users greater control over their systems and better protection. Exchange Server is software that allows users to send and receive e-mail and other types of interactive communication through networks. The item was initially designed to work in conjunction with software client applications like Microsoft Outlook, Exchange Server and Outlook Express.

During the summer of 2005, computer resellers began a marketing campaign to bring more users to Exchange 2003 noting the business benefits it provided by saving money in the long run. The marketing campaign was unsuccessful, as many users did not see the benefit of paying the exorbitant amounts of upgrading and dealing with the disruption in business that inevitably followed. Customer service problems also inhibited people from changing to Exchange.

In late 2005, Microsoft released beta versions of Exchange 12, which will ship later this year or in early 2007 and includes improved support packages and greater user friendliness. Many users will be forced to switch when the new version is released, as the latest version is an integral part of newer Windows-based operating systems.

Exchange offers calendar and diary applications that have now been embedded into other applications such as Office and Sharepoint. Exchange Server provides a high level of virus and spam protection and an excellent system for disaster recovery should any malicious files or programs get through to a system. The program offers increased database sizes and better collaboration with Microsoft’s own applications and other messaging products. Exchange 12 gives more control for users and greater capacity for growth of business.

Becoming a Microsoft certified systems administrator messaging specialist, specializing in the Exchange Server requires three core and one specialist exam and up to 23 days of training.
