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 features meant for business and not really something for the end-user.

I am wondering whether Exchange offers any extra's for the single end-user.

As a 'con', for the single end-user, who is using 3rd party spamfiltering tools, they usually don't work with Exchange.
3rd party spamfiltering tools are handy as they filter mail before it actually arrives in the mailbox and often easy to manage.
