Microsoft Exchange Online is an enterprise-class, remotely hosted, email messaging solution that uses the power of Microsoft Exchange Server to provide the mission-critical messaging services that businesses require today. Messaging content held in Exchange Online is accessible to users on a wide range of devices from inside your corporate network or over the Internet. The service gives users single sign-on access to email, calendar, and contacts from virtually anywhere and at any time.

Microsoft offers several versions of Exchange Online for enterprise environments. In comparison to the commonly known “Exchange Online” service provided by a virtualized environment on multi-tenant hardware, the Exchange Online Dedicated offering is a premium service provided to a single tenant on dedicated hardware. When your organization subscribes to a dedicated plan of Exchange Online for enterprises, your messaging content is hosted on dedicated servers that are housed in reliable, security-enhanced, Microsoft data centers.

  1. Unless otherwise qualified, the use of the term “Exchange Online” in the balance of this service description refers to the Exchange Online Dedicated offering.

  2. Unless otherwise indicated, the information in this service description also applies to the International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR-support) version of Exchange Online.

Together with the Microsoft Outlook messaging and collaboration client, Exchange Online simplifies communications. It improves the way information is shared and how users connect with others while also increasing message security and compliance. This combination gives organizations a comprehensive time and information management solution for improved collaboration with customers, partners, and coworkers.

With Exchange Online, customers retain control over the messaging services offered to users. Easy integration with the Azure Active Directory service means that customer IT personnel can control service availability through existing group policies.
