Microsoft 365 Email & Hosted Exchange

Microsoft Exchange Online is a dedicated cloud email service that is meant to centralize your emails into a single database in the Microsoft cloud. In doing so, you will have access to a sustainable business email. The benefits of email and hosted exchange are too good to overlook, and our team at RHYNO Networks wants you to have access to high-quality solutions so that your data is always covered and secured.

The Benefits & Function Of Microsoft Exchange Online

Lost data is costing businesses a lot of money, every year. To prevent this, you need to have the appropriate email security and archive features in place. Here are some examples of how Microsoft Exchange Online


  • Easily Accessible: The beauty of Microsoft 365 programs is that they’re easily accessible from anywhere. You can stay connected on all devices which includes work computers, Outlook Web App, or the smartphone app. They remain impervious to all kinds of difficult situations. So even if you lose power in your area, Exchange makes sure you won’t miss any emails or lose valuable data.
  • User-Friendly: For large-scale enterprises, you’re probably used to receiving dozens or even hundreds of emails a day. With the help of Exchange, this will be much easier to view and manage. Emails that are a part of the same chain can be grouped together, meaning you won’t have to spend as much time organizing and it’s easier to focus on what really matters. For instance, should you need the contact info for an email that was received, there is a contact card associated with the email.
  • Shared Calendars and Mailboxes: Shared calendars on exchange will take the guesswork out of scheduling. Calendar access can be given to coworkers, associates at other organizations, or even with your friends and family. In addition to this, shared mailboxes are included and come with stacks of storage for every user. The best part about this is that you don’t need to worry about freeing up mailbox space
  • Cutting Down On Costs: Microsoft 365 integrations that bundle outlook and other applications will allow users to control their costs. Office 365 licenses allow you to add/remove users at will and you will always have the ability to be flexible.
  • Compliance: Complying with the rules and regulations imposed by the government is paramount in the business world. Thankfully, Office services have been certified as compliant with ISO 27001 standards, having completed audits with SAS70 Type I and II, respectively. Microsoft has also taken the liberty of adding controls to help consumers comply with HIPAA and FERPA regulations.
  • Protecting Sensitive Data: With the help of email DLP and email encryption, this will keep employees from mishandling information that is vital to the company you represent. The DLP feature goes deep into full-text content, as a means of promoting more rigid email security

Outlook On The Web Within Exchange Server

For those looking to use the web version of Outlook, this is an option as well. The Exchange Server has been optimized and simplified for phone and tablet users. Web browsers that support the apps give users more access to Outlook features. Unsupported web browsers will give users a more condensed version of outlook which is equipped with fewer features.

What is ActiveSync?

ActiveSync is a client protocol that allows its users to sync their Exchange mailbox on a mobile device. The feature will be enabled on new user mailboxes by default, and if it’s disabled, it will prevent the user from synchronizing their mailbox with mobile devices that are using ActiveSync. Administrators will have easy access to the Exchange admin center (EAC) or the Exchange Management Shell, in order to enable or disable sync access to the mailbox.

Anti-Spam and Anti-Malware Protection in EOP

Consumers that are regularly using Microsoft 365 applications with mailboxes in Exchange Online or through standalone EOP (Exchange Online Protection) will have their email messages automatically protected against spam and malware from the EOP. Spam is deemed as an “unsolicited and unwanted email”. Conversely, malware is viruses and spyware. As we know-viruses will infiltrate other programs, data, and they will continually spread throughout your computer, just looking for programs to infect. EOP has both inbound and outbound malware filters that protect your enterprise from potent software, essentially mitigating the threats altogether.
