in Exchange Server 2016 were birthed in the cloud and then refined in a feedback loop that includes

The preview is said to have the following headline features-- A new approach to document collaboration
that makes it easy to send links and collaborate without versioning issues of attachments.
Faster and more intelligent search, to help users quickly find what they need in their mailboxes
Significant improvements to eDiscovery search performance and reliability. Plus better
extensibility, including new REST-based APIs for Mail, Calendar, and Contacts that simplify
web and mobile development.

be more features revealed before long, and “tight integration with products like SharePoint Server
2016” is promised.
Get the most dependable SMTP server for your company. You will congratulate yourself!
