Veara uses Amazon WorkMail for all of our internal email, calendaring and contacts.
Amazon WorkMail is a secure, managed business email and calendar service with support for existing desktop and mobile email client applications. Amazon WorkMail gives users the ability to seamlessly access their email, contacts, and calendars using the client application of their choice, including Microsoft Outlook, native iOS and Android email applications, any client application supporting the IMAP protocol, or directly through a web browser. You can integrate Amazon WorkMail with your existing corporate directory, use email journaling to meet compliance requirements, and control both the keys that encrypt your data and the location in which your data is stored. You can also set up interoperability with Microsoft Exchange Server, and programmatically manage users, groups, and resources using the Amazon WorkMail SDK.
Amazon WorkMail makes it easy to manage your corporate email infrastructure and eliminates the need for up-front investments to license and provision on-premises email servers. There is no complex software to install or maintain and no hardware to manage. Amazon WorkMail automatically handles all of the patches, back-ups, and upgrades.
Microsoft Outlook Compatible
Amazon WorkMail provides native support for Microsoft Outlook on Windows and Mac OS X, so users can continue to use the email client they are already using without needing to install any additional software, such as plug-ins for Microsoft Outlook. Amazon WorkMail supports all of the advanced Microsoft Outlook capabilities your users depend on, such as free/busy scheduling, delegation, and out of office replies.
Amazon WorkMail automatically encrypts all of your data at rest with encryption keys you control, using the AWS Key Management Service. All data in transit is encrypted using industry-standard SSL encryption.
Active Directory Integration
You can integrate your existing Microsoft Active Directory with Amazon WorkMail using AWS Directory Service AD Connector or run AWS Directory Service for Microsoft Active Directory Enterprise Edition (“Microsoft AD”) so you don’t have to manage users in two places and users can continue to use their existing Microsoft Active Directory credentials. Alternatively, you can have Amazon WorkMail create and manage a Simple AD directory for you and have users in that directory created when you add them to your Amazon WorkMail organization.
Journaling allows you to record all email communication sent or received by your Amazon WorkMail organization. By enabling journaling, you can meet your data security and information protection policies using third party compliance solutions for email archiving and e-discovery. Because Amazon WorkMail uses industry standards for journaling, you can integrate with any third-party solution that supports SMTP journaling.
Interoperability with Microsoft Exchange Server
You can set up interoperability with Microsoft Exchange Server 2010 and 2013. Interoperability allows you to use both Amazon WorkMail and Microsoft Exchange Server at the same time so that you can use the same corporate domain for mailboxes across both environments. It allows your users to seamlessly schedule meetings with bi-directional sharing of calendar free-busy information, and access user and resource information through a unified global address book. Interoperability minimizes disruption when migrating to Amazon WorkMail, and it allows you to use Amazon WorkMail concurrently with Microsoft Exchange Server for a subset of your corporate mailboxes.
Amazon WorkMail provides an administrative SDK so you can natively integrate WorkMail with your existing services. The SDK enables programmatic user, email group, and meeting room or equipment resource management. You can also programmatically receive Exchange Web Services (EWS) push notifications. This means your existing IT service management tools, workflows, and third-party applications can automate WorkMail migration and management, and respond to events in your mailboxes in real-time.
IMAP Protocol Support
Amazon WorkMail allows you to access your email with any email client application that supports the IMAP protocol. This allows you to choose from a broad range of clients on the platform of your choice, including those that do not offer support for Microsoft Exchange compatible protocols like Microsoft Exchange Web Services and Microsoft ActiveSync. It also allows you to integrate Amazon WorkMail with IT applications and systems which rely on the IMAP protocol to access email. Amazon WorkMail offers an SMTP gateway so that you can send email through WorkMail without the need to configure a different SMTP endpoint.
Feature-Rich Web Client
Amazon WorkMail provides a feature-rich web client so that users can access their email and calendars, view shared calendars, quickly schedule meetings with co-workers, or search the company address book using their browser. Users can also manage their out-of-office replies and book resources, such as conference rooms. The Amazon WorkMail web client is also integrated with Amazon WorkDocs to provide users with the ability to attach files stored in WorkDocs to an email, replace an existing email attachment with a WorkDocs link, and securely save attachments to WorkDocs with a single click.
The Amazon WorkMail web client supports most popular browsers, including Firefox, Chrome, Safari, and Internet Explorer 9+.
Mobile Device Management
Amazon WorkMail enforces security policies that you specify for your users’ mobile devices via the Microsoft Exchange ActiveSync protocol. You can require device encryption, require that devices lock, specify requirements for device password strength, and wipe devices remotely using the AWS Management Console.
Users can access their email and calendar using all major mobile devices supporting the Microsoft Exchange ActiveSync protocol, including iPad, iPhone, Kindle Fire, Fire Phone, Android, Windows Phone, and BlackBerry 10.
Email Flow Rules
Amazon WorkMail allows you to use email flow rules to filter inbound email traffic for your Amazon WorkMail organizations, which helps you reduce email from unwanted senders, route suspicious mail to junk folders, and make sure important messages are successfully delivered. Email flow rules can be applied based on specific email addresses, or entire email domains.
Spam and Virus Protection
Amazon WorkMail scans all incoming and outgoing email for spam, malware, and viruses to help protect your users from malicious email.
Amazon WorkMail provides a 50 GB mailbox size by default, eliminating the need for users to have to worry about dealing with large attachments or mailbox size restrictions.
