With Exchange®, your email resides on a server called the Microsoft Exchange® Server. The Exchange® Server stores the email and other information associated with your Exchange® account in a centralized database. This database can be hosted either locally in your own organization or in the cloud, depending on the deployment method you choose.
In an on-premises deployment, the Exchange® server is hosted in your own data center or on your own servers. Email is stored on the Exchange® servers, which are managed and maintained by your organization.
With a cloud-based deployment, such as Hosted Microsoft Exchange®, your emails are stored on our servers in a German data center. Our cloud servers offer scalability, reliability and a wide range of features for your Exchange® account.
Regardless of the delivery method, access to your email is available from a variety of devices, including desktop computers, laptops, smartphones, and tablets. When you log in to your Exchange® account using an email client such as Outlook®, a web browser, or a mobile app, your email and other information is retrieved from the Exchange® server and displayed.
It’s important to note that Exchange® is a comprehensive email, calendar, and collaboration solution. Therefore, not only your emails, but also your calendars, contacts, and other information are stored and synchronized in the Exchange® Server for seamless use across different devices
