Determine the version of Microsoft Exchange Server my account connects to

Some features of Microsoft Exchange accounts depend on the version of Exchange that your account connects to. An example is the Outlook Anywhere feature, which requires Microsoft Exchange Server 2003 or later.

To determine the version of Exchange that your account connects to, do the following:

  1. With Microsoft Outlook running, press and hold CTRL while you right-click the Outlook icon in the notification area, at the far right of the taskbar.
