Product support Lifecycle policy for Exchange Central can be found here
* Extended Support
Concerning supported platforms, overall we follow the Microsoft Lifecycle Policy (Mainstream Support End Date). This means that, over time, platforms fall out of support. When a Microsoft platform product (Exchange, Outlook, etc.) ends its mainstream support, we list this on the product revision history.
If you, as a customer, uses a Microsoft platform product, which has ended its mainstream support, it may still be possible to purchase extended support for the Add-On Products product in question. Should you be interested in such then please contact your reseller or us directly by clicking here.
