Exchange Server 2013 will reach its end of support on April 11, 2023. If you haven’t already begun your migration from Exchange 2013 to Microsoft 365, Office 365, or Exchange 2019, now’s the time to start planning.
This means all security updates and patches will be ending soon!
After April 11th Microsoft will no longer provide:
- Technical support for problems that may occur
- Bug fixes for issues that are discovered and that may impact the stability and usability of the server
- Security fixes for vulnerabilities that are discovered and that may make the server vulnerable to security breaches
- Time zone updates
Microsoft Exchange Product Marketing Manager Scott Schnoll had this to say: “Exchange Server 2013 will continue to run after this date, of course; however, due to the risks listed above, we strongly recommend that you migrate from Exchange Server 2013 as soon as possible. If you haven’t started your migration from Exchange Server 2013 to Exchange Online or Exchange Server 2019, get going now!”
