Microsoft Exchange Server has long been the gold standard in enterprise-level email solutions, but many small businesses have shied away from it due to the cost and complexity of setting up and managing an on-premises server. Fortunately, Microsoft now offers Exchange Online, a cloud-based version of its popular email solution.
For the longest time, businesses have been installing email servers on site to have more control over their data. But the drawback of this setup is that it's more expensive and you need to have a dedicated IT team to manage everything. Microsoft Exchange Online is a cloud-based email service that offers the same features and benefits of an on-premises Exchange server, without the hassle and expense.
