In reporting better-than-expected fourth quarter earnings Thursday, Microsoft Corp. CEO Satya Nadella touted his company’s success in the cloud.

“Businesses everywhere are using the Microsoft Cloud as their digital platform to drive their ambitious transformation agendas,” he said.

What he didn’t mention was the role that one of the company’s much older products played in the success of this new technology: Microsoft Exchange Server, which many of the world’s largest companies rely on for email services.
