More Microsoft Exchange Online Pros →

"With multiple databases for VOIP, chat and web IMAP, maintenance is cumbersome.""Our customers sometimes have problems receiving mail.""I would like to have a trial for mobile applications and more documentation similar to Google Drive with mobile applications.""The exchange compatibility mode is rather limited.

More IceWarp Cons →

"The solution could improve by making the user interface better.""The demo version we were provided had issues with emails bouncing or being delayed.""I don't really like the response time of the web GUI for administration.""The integration could be better if it could integrate well with other products and software.""For non-technical people, some configurations might be a little bit difficult. We can use it on our laptops or our portable devices like mobiles and others gadgets, but we have had repeated problems with syncing. That is, when using different gadgets and devices, there are issues with syncing. The configuration could definitely be improved.""The SaaS platform performance could be improved. At a previous company, we used this same solution on-premises. The data exchange was much faster compared to the SaaS platform and we sometimes experience lags.""I would like to have the option to have my electronic signature posted on my emails by default. I am able to add it manually but cannot get it by default.""The problem with Exchange is that the attributes aren't flexible enough. I'd like to see more interaction with Office 365 and tighter integration between on-prem Exchange and Exchange Online. There's still a disconnect between mailboxes and the cloud."
