Clients and User Interface

14.5. What Are Premium and Basic Clients?

Depending on what browser you use (see FAQ 14.2 for details about what browsers you can use), you have a choice of two different types of user interfaces, called clients: the Premium Client and the Basic Client. Each type of client provides you with the capability to access your Microsoft Exchange Server account items such as your e-mail, contacts, calendar, tasks, and so on.

However, the Premium Client is designed to ensure that the user interface closely resembles the Outlook 2003 software and is generally easier to use than the Basic Client. It also offers more powerful features than the Basic Client and tends to be the client of choice. However, because the Basic Client has a less complicated user interface with fewer features, it uses less bandwidth, and on slow network connections it operates slightly faster than the Premium Client. There is no noticeable difference in speed when using broadband connections or if you are on the same local area network as the Microsoft Exchange Server.
