Full Mailbox Access – Mobile, browser or email client provide access to all your mail, all the time. With POP3, downloaded messages are stored on the local client and taken off the server, preventing the ability to view the data elsewhere. (If you opt to 'keep a copy on the server', you will still only be able to see your Inbox – not any other folders).
Sharing and Collaboration - When you use Exchange with Outlook, you can quickly and easily check availability of co-workers, conference rooms, and shared resources by viewing multiple calendars side by side. With POP3, there is no sharing or collaboration. You are not limited to sharing just a Calendar – with Exchange, you can share any folder in your Mailbox, files and anything in your Public Folders.
Backups - Up to 70% of your business data is in Outlook. If your hard drive crashes you will lose all of your Outlook data. With exchange, a copy of all of your data is stored on your local client – another copy remains on the server. If a computer crashes, with Exchange, configuring a new computer, with the existing mailbox information, will bring all of the data, once lost, back down, in its entirety to the new computer.
Synchronization with Mobile Devices – Stay in contact with your customers and colleagues whether you are in the office, on the road or at home. Access your e-mail, contacts, and calendar from your Android, Apple, Blackberry, Treo, and Windows Mobile Devices.
