Benefits of MS Exchange Server 2K Over Microsoft Exchange Server 5.5
MS Exchange Server 2000 offers important enhancements in capability over MS Exchange 5.5 Server in vital areas including accessibility, manageability, protection, stability, scalability, and performance.

The only thing mobile clients require is a web accessible PC with a standard web browser.
