Exchange Connector System Requirements

  • Microsoft .NET Framework 4.7.2 or later
    After installing the .NET Framework, we strongly recommend running Windows Update and installing the latest Important and Optional updates.

  • Microsoft Exchange Server 2019, 2016, 2013 with Mailbox Role, 2010/2007 with Hub Transport Role, or Exchange 2003
    The latest service pack for Exchange is recommended, as are multi-Role Exchange Servers. In an Exchange 2019, 2016 or 2013 environment, the Mailbox Role is required. In an Exchange 2010 or 2007 environment, the Hub Transport role is required.

  • Windows Server 2019, 2016, 2012 R2, 2012 or 2008 R2, SBS 2011 or Windows 7, 8.1 or 10
    Both 32-bit (x86) and 64-bit (x64) versions of Windows are supported. The operating system and platform architecture (32-bit or 64-bit) do not need to match if Exchange Connector is installed on a separate machine to Exchange. Desktop operating systems (Windows Vista, Windows 7, Windows 8 and Windows 10) are supported by Exchange Connector although installation on a server operating system is recommended.

    Exchange Connector does NOT need to be installed on the same machine as Exchange Server. Installing on a separate machine will be required for interoperability with Exchange 2003 or 2007 as these versions of Exchange do not support Server 2008 R2 or later.

    The latest service pack and updates for Windows are recommended. For Windows Server 2008 R2 and SBS 2011, a minimum of SP1 is required.

Note: Service Pack 1 is Required on Windows Server 2008 R2 & Small Business Server (SBS) 2011
The .NET Framework 4.7.2 requires Service Pack 1 on Windows Server 2008 R2 and Small Business Server (SBS) 2011. Exchange Connector installation will not proceed until the .NET Framework 4.7.2 or later has been installed.

The Service Pack 1 installer is the same for Server 2008 R2 and SBS 2011 and can be manually downloaded from the Microsoft Update Catalog (direct link) if necessary.
