Exchange Server offers features that allow you and your employees anywhere access to e-mail, calendaring, and more. See what features are included with Exchange Server for anywhere access below.
Mobile & Web Based Messaging
 Mobile Messaging
  • Search. Information can be quickly found from a mobile device using the search capability of Exchange ActiveSync. When executing a search from a mobile device, both the local device store and the user's entire Exchange mailbox are queried. Results found through the over-the-air search of the Exchange mailbox can be rapidly retrieved to the device. This capability enables access to information sent or received days, weeks, or even months before, regardless of the storage limitations of the mobile device.

  • Direct Push. Mobile devices incorporating Exchange ActiveSync maintain a secure connection with Exchange Server, receiving new or updated e-mail, calendar, contacts, and tasks as soon as they arrive on the server. This push method optimizes bandwidth usage while keeping users up-to-date.

  • Rich Experience on a Breadth of Devices. Users can get a familiar experience on a range of mobile devices without requiring the organization to deploy expensive third-party software or services. The Exchange Server ActiveSync protocol is licensed for use by Windows Mobile, Nokia, Symbian, Motorola, Sony Ericsson, Palm, and DataViz. Given the breadth of partners, device choice continues to expand.

  • Calendaring and Out of Office. With Exchange Server, users have many new options when accessing their calendar from a mobile device using Exchange ActiveSync. They can reply to a meeting invitation with a message, forward the invitation to another person, and view acceptance tracking for meeting attendees. Out of Office messages can also be set from the mobile device.
 The Outlook Experience via the Web
Outlook Web Access (OWA), an AJAX application since its first release with Exchange Server 5.5, provides a rich, Outlook-like experience in a browser. New features in OWA enable users to:

  • Schedule Out of Office messages and send to internal and/or external recipients.
  • Use the Scheduling Assistant to efficiently book meetings.
  • Use WebReady Document Viewing to read attachments in HTML even if the application that created the document is not installed locally.
  • Access RSS subscriptions.
  • View content in Managed E-mail Folders.
  • Search the Global Address List (GAL).
 Outlook Web Access Light
Outlook Web Access Light provides a rich Outlook Web Access experience over slow connections and enables many of the new features in Outlook Web Access, including schedulable Out of Office messages (internal and external), Really Simple Syndication (RSS) subscriptions, and Managed E-Mail Folder access.
Exchange Server mailboxes are fully indexed by default, allowing users to quickly search for information from Outlook Web Access. Re-indexing is significantly faster than in previous versions, and search spans both content within the e-mail itself and data contained in attachments.

 Self-Service Support
The Outlook Web Access Options menu allows users to quickly and easily resolve many of the most common sources of helpdesk calls on their own. OWA users can request a Unified Messaging voice mail PIN reset, issue a remote wipe request to their mobile device should it be lost of stolen, and add senders to their safe or block list all within Outlook Web Access.
 Access Security
Outlook Web Access security is improved from previous releases. Two-factor authentication is supported, and administrators can enforce HTML-only document viewing to avoid information being left behind on public kiosks.
