Exchange Online

In Exchange Online, the Exchange Administration Center (EAC) has replaced the Exchange Control Panel (ECP) as the GUI-based administrative tool used to manage cloud-based recipients. The EAC also replaces the Exchange Management Console in Exchange 2013. For more information, see Exchange admin center in Exchange 2013.

Although the EAC has a different look and feel than the ECP, managing Exchange Online recipients in the EAC is similar to managing recipients in the current version of Exchange Online. And because you use the EAC in both Exchange Online and Exchange 2013 organizations, managing cloud-based recipients is similar to managing on-premises recipients. For more information about managing some of the different types of recipients in Exchange Online, see the following Exchange 2013 topics:
