What is the difference between Mail server and Exchange server

A mail server (also known as a mail transfer agent or MTA, a mail transport agent, a mail router or an Internet mailer) is an application that receives incoming e-mail from local users (people within the same domain) and remote senders and forwards outgoing e-mail for delivery. A computer dedicated to running such applications is also called a mail server.
Microsoft Exchange, qmail, Exim and sendmail are among the more common mail server programs
