Microsoft Exchange Server 2016 benefits at a glance
In addition to enhancements to existing features, the Windows Server 2016 Standard release offers a number of important new features. First is the optimization of the server architecture by reducing the number of server roles to two: mailbox and edge transport - more details below. Also, search scaling has been simplified and cloud services support has been improved. Other features also include:
Hybrid Cloud support
Exchange Server 2016 Standard now supports hybrid scenarios, where mailboxes can reside on an on-premises server or in the cloud. Local mailboxes can also be used as cloud extensions via Exchange Online archiving and Azure Rights Management.
Outlook on the Web
Known as "Outlook Web Access" or "Outlook Web App" in older versions, the new name for Web-based access to Exchange Server is now "Outlook on the Web." The reason for this is that this feature has been fundamentally revised and optimized by Microsoft: Outlook can now be used without installing the Outlook app on a smartphone or tablet running Android or iOS. The new sweep feature makes it easier to organize emails from a specific sender: optionally, they can be kept only for a certain number of days, or only the most recent message is saved.
Outlook on the Web can also be used with Safari, Firefox or Google Chrome instead of Microsoft's Edge and Internet Explorer 11 browsers without any major restrictions.
Improved collaboration in the cloud via Outlook
In Outlook 2016 or Outlook on the Web, files saved in SharePoint 2016 can now also be inserted in an e-mail as a link, instead of only in the form of an attachment as before. The recipient in question can still open the linked file on his or her PC just like an attachment. The standard protocol for server-to-server authentication is OAuth (Open Authorization). Access rights to files can be customized and automatically activated.
eDiscovery for optimized search
In Exchange Server 2016, the search architecture of eDiscovery has been revised - it works asynchronously as well as decentrally, searching multiple servers simultaneously, which leads to faster results. In Outlook or Outlook on the Web, when a search term is entered, suggestions appear based on the most frequently used emails in the mailbox or contacts, as well as previous searches. In addition, contextual filters for the date range and related senders are also available to make it easier to find information as a result. With Outlook on the Web, it is also possible to search in other people's calendars in addition to your own.
New calendar functions
In addition to a new look, the calendar has also received new features, such as email reminders for calendar events and the option to suggest an alternative time for meeting invitations.
