EOP was very simple to implement. We redirected our MX record and reconfigured our SMTP gateway for applications. EOP does not filter as well as our former product, IronPort, but it is simpler to administer and requires less maintenance.
EOP is a simple product to implement and maintain. You need to evaluate that ease vs. your user communities tolerance of spam and knowledge to detect phishing scams.
It's ease of implementation and lack of significant maintenance
It does not catch as much spam, phishing, and virus emails as the leaders in this industry.
It wish the scanner caught more of the phishing and 0-day viruses.
We would probably augment EOP with the IronPort appliance.
It's a good product, it just isn't the best overall email protection service.
We utilize Microsoft Premier Support. they are very prompt and can typically provide a recommendation if we encounter an issue. It usually involves doing something on our end users desktop rather than globally through EOP though.

Lots of mail delays and spam issues since the new version has been implemented.
Setup custom rules.
Not very configurable.
More direct response.

Ease of use, friendly UI, could use better migration tools to detect current spam environment and help provide cutover instructions.
