Microsoft Exchange Online Email vs Standard POP/IMAP email

Microsoft Exchange Online Email Solution is great for security and being in control of your data. It is also a good solution if you need your devices to sync with each other.

Here is a good comparison chart

Why not POP Mail?

  • Messages are removed from the server when downloaded to Outlook
  • Sent messages are not saved on the server, when your device gets lost or stolen, your sent items will be gone
  • Very hard to make backups. Must be done manually or purchase 3rd party software.
  • Does not sync with all devices

Why not IMAP Mail?

  • Easily run out of disk space
  • Very little disk space and hard to manage space between users.
  • Does not have multi factor authentication
