Definition - What does Microsoft Exchange mean?

Microsoft Exchange is a collection of applications that enable digital messaging and collaboration in an enterprise IT environment.

Microsoft Exchange is also known as Windows Messaging.

Techopedia explains Microsoft Exchange

Microsoft Exchange primarily enables an organization to configure and host email and collaboration services. In a Microsoft Exchange messaging system/environment, Microsoft Exchange Server is installed on a Windows Server operating system and provides the server-side services and features, whereas Microsoft Exchange Client is installed at client nodes. Each incoming email is first received at the Exchange Server and is then routed to the destination client.

In addition to email services, Microsoft Exchange also provides utilities such as:

  • Contact management
  • Tasks management
  • Calendar

Moreover, it is also available as hosted or cloud services—deployed and entirely accessible from the Internet/cloud.
