Reasons to Migrate from Exchange

MDaemon Messaging Server, from a total cost of ownership consideration, is much less expensive to purchase, maintain, and upgrade than Microsoft Exchange. From a staffing point-of-view, Exchange usually requires at least one highly-trained IT professional with compensation requirements beyond the means of budget-conscious organizations. Such staffing support can add tens of thousands of dollars (U.S.) to the annual cost of owning Exchange.

When comparing, consider the resource savings MDaemon offers:

  • Initial software purchase
  • Upgrades
  • Licensing
  • Operations
  • Feature set, including security
  • Ease of administration
  • Email user support
  • Email user satisfaction
  • Specialized staffing
  • Hardware requirements
  • Operating system requirements
