Exchange Online Plan 2 from CDW is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 20.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from The management is very simple. The unlimited storage is a nice feature. What is our primary use case?Our primary use case is for a mailing solution. It is an amazing solution that we have been using for quite some time.How has it helped my organization?The management is very simple, using Exchange Online. So basically you just start a license. So that way, management is very simple.What is most valuable?Its most valuable feature is the unlimited storage. It also has very little downtime. In addition, there is a lot of security which comes with this product. I do not think of integration of anything without this solution.What needs improvement?There is still room for improvement. For example, recently there were some spam incidents that Microsoft does not currently mitigate because they have another paid solution to do so. It would be nice to integrate the security and the anti-spam (i.e. the fake links, etc.) along with the Exchange Online default.For how long have I used the solution?More than five years.What do I think about the stability of the solution?I have not experienced any issues with stability of the solution.What do I think about the scalability of the solution?I have not experienced any issues with the scalability of the solution.How is customer service and technical support?I think the tech support was very good. There are different types of support provided. We had some recent issues regarding anti-spam.Which solutions did we use previously?We upgraded from earlier versions of Exchange to the current Exchange Online. We noticed that the last version had a limitation of data storage. With the current Exchange Online, if I have a license, I can have unlimited storage. So, I do not have to worry about anything, and I can keep all of the emails on the cloud, accessible from all of my devices. It is also a welcome integration with all Microsoft Suite products. This is a nice added advantage.How was the initial setup?The initial setup was not that complex. If you have experience with Microsoft Exchange, then the setup of Microsoft Exchange Online is still fairly straightforward.What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?I think it is a very manageable and reasonable solution. There are different licensing agreements that you can choose, according to your company's needs. In general, I think this is a pretty reasonable solution.Which other solutions did I evaluate?We started with Exchange, so we did not look at other solutions.What other advice do I have?Exchange Online is the best solution currently available in the market. And we see from our experience that people are moving from different mailing solutions to Exchange Online. It works very well with your Microsoft Suite of products such as : Word, Excel, PowerPoint, and Outlook.Disclaimer: I am a real user, and this review is based on my own experience and opinions.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Exchange Online makes it easy to get your email anywhere, and administration seems to be pretty straight forward, from what I've seen.I mostly use it as a user anymore, but it's simple to set up email and that makes it good!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from O365 is very good online / hosted email solution. I think it has great value for money ratio and with the add-ons for online storage and web meetings (on specific packages) it really should be the first choice for anyone looking for online email solution.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Loving Exchange online since we got it in our environment. Still trying to figure out the features it can provide with the outbound spam configuration. Advanced threat protection works as it should.We moved from MX Logic to Advanced Threat Protection of Exchange Online and glad we did it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It has an intuitive GUI for control and provides encryption for HIPPA standards. Valuable Features:- Ease of migration from anywhere- Intuitive GUI for control (Has greatly improved)- Filters- Granular control- Encryption for HIPPA standards- Central administration over all applications and clients- Built in support ticket system- Free mobile applicationsImprovements to My Organization:I have made about 10 migrations from Gmail, ATT, Amplex, 2007 and 2010 on prem Exchange servers to Exchange Online. The uptime and stability is far better than any on-prem or hosted solution I have used in the past.Being a MS partner gives you central administration over all of your customers.Room for Improvement:Microsoft does not provide an automated way to migrate Public Folders. At this time you will need to run a series of complex PowerShell commands. I do not recommend this at all.Use of Solution:4 yearsDeployment Issues:There is a learning curve when migrating from other solutions. Once you understand the process it is straight forward.Stability Issues:The dashboard reveals when there are issues but none that my customers have ever experienced.Scalability Issues:Exchange Online is extremely scalable. I know a company that migrate over 10k mailboxes. I am sure there are many companies that are much bigger yet.Customer Service:10 out of 10Technical Support:10 out of 10Previous Solutions:As stated earlier, I have used Exchange on premises solutions, google, ATT, Rackspace and other solutions. They all do mail and do it well, however the ease of integration, simplicity of administration, and the overall support is the best!Initial Setup:There is a learning curve when migrating from other solutions. Once you understand the process it is straight forwardImplementation Team:All implementations were performed by me.ROI:Currently as a Microsoft Partner we do not pay for an E3 license of O365 which includes Exchange Online. As for customers they are billed directly from Microsoft.As a partner of record on each customer Microsoft pays out residuals as long as the customer continues to pay for the service.If you are not a partner the ROI is based on the fact that you no longer need to pay for hardware/software, hardware/software maintenance, and labor to perform upgrades, maintenance, and troubleshooting of hardware/software.Cost and Licensing Advice:The plans can be confusing. Take time to understand what you need, what you will need in the future, and buy a plan accordingly.Other Solutions Considered:Gmail, ATT, Amplex, other ISP solutions, On-prem Exhange.Other Advice:Moving to Exchange Online open doors for many options that come with O365 and Azure. As technology continues to move forward it is pushing us to the cloud. Starting with email in the cloud open doors for other solutions that may fit your business.Disclaimer: My company has a business relationship with this vendor other than being a customer:Partners
