Exchange and IMAP have similar functionalities as each synchronize email from multiple devices, like tablets, computers and phones. But even if they appear similar from the outside, they have distinct options.
This protocol stores the email messages on a remote server, and it will be kept untill deleted. This protocol gives the option to freely check emails from different types of hardwares (phones, tablets, PCs…). In addition, it offers synchronisation, so when an email is read on a device, it will be marked as ‘read’ on all the other devices. In addition, a regular backup is done by your ISP.
And finally, we have the flag option or creating folders.
As a Microsoft protocol, Exchange offers the all constant convenient email syncing operations as IMAP, however it conjointly offers you the facility to synchronize tasks, contacts and calendars with co-workers, and consider them from any device. This makes Exchange a perfect answer for organizations that rely heavily on collaboration and infrequently work remotely.
Using Exchange, every user has a personal mailbox on the server running Exchange. Email messages, contacts and also the user’s calendar area unit keep in their mailbox. In addition, Exchange has the offline operation option.
Configure your pc and your smartphone with exchange, and your contacts and calendar are maintained in unison. Exchange’s “Cached Mode” allows you to store messages in native folders for offline usage.
