    Benefits of Exchange over IMAP and why would I choose Exchange?

    It is often said that Exchange is the best choice. In fact, when setting up Outlook, it more or less defaults to Exchange : entering email and password - that's it. IMAP even requires an 'advanced' setup and entering server addresses. From what I know Exchange is a business solution with...
