To meet the need in terms of flexibility and mobility in email management, contact management and appointment / task scheduling, the Jade University Computing Center runs a Microsoft Exchange Server 2019 system as an enterprise messaging platform.

The Exchange Server 2019 system provides unified access across smartphone, tablet, desktop and the web, allowing you to be productive virtually anywhere and manage your email, contacts, tasks, appointments and other notifications.

In addition to its extensive messaging capabilities, Exchange Server also offers the ability to enhance work within project or work groups. For example, you can coordinate joint schedules, control tasks in a decentralized manner, or make information available to group members centrally, thus accelerating team workflows.

If you need further information about the e-mail system or have any questions, please contact the colleagues at the University Computer Center at your respective location.
