Microsoft Exchange Server Consulting and Support Services
MS Exchange Server 2000: Nationwide Online Consulting Services and Support
MS Exchange Server 2K was the initial messaging solution developed by Microsoft to utilize Active Directory rather than a built-in directory structure. This architectural enhancement made MS Exchange 2000 Server dramatically easier to support and MS Exchange 2000 Server continues to be the heart of the email environment of many small businesses.
Years of experience with Microsoft's Exchange platforms makes Progent one of the most qualified computer consulting resources in the U.S. for maintaining email solutions powered by Microsoft Exchange 2000 Server. Progent is experienced at helping small businesses who continue to run MS Exchange 2000 Server and Progent can help you assess the business value of upgrading your Microsoft Exchange 2000 Server system to a more recent version of Exchange.
Benefits of Microsoft Exchange 2000 Server Vs. MS Exchange Server 5.5
MS Exchange 2000 Server offers major enhancements in capability over MS Exchange 5.5 Server in vital areas such as accessibility, manageability, protection, robustness, capacity, and speed.
The 2K release of Microsoft Exchange Server represented a dramatic improvement in functionality over the MS Exchange 5.5 web client. MS Exchange Server 2000 offers a solid implementation of the traditional Outlook GUI, including calendaring and tools. Consequently, authorized mobile users can enjoy full, secure access to email even in the absence of their mobile computer. All mobile clients need is an Internet-connected computer that has a standard web browser.
In contrast to Microsoft Exchange 5.5, which uses its own directory, Microsoft Exchange 2000 Server utilizes Active Directory, offering a much simplified administration and security model. This makes Microsoft Exchange Server 2000 simpler to manage and support and also offers tighter protection.
Microsoft Exchange 2000 Server has a strong architecture for transparently integrating third-party software such as virus scanning packages and anti-spamming tools. Microsoft Exchange Server 2K's strong API avoids the risks existing with Exchange 5.5 when integrating third-party add-ins.
Microsoft Exchange Server 2000 offers dramatically increased capacity and responsiveness compared to Exchange 5.5. Therefore you can deploy more and larger mailboxes and enjoy quicker off-site connectivity.

Advantages of Microsoft Exchange Server 2000 Compared to an ISP-based or POP3 Email Environment
If your organization still has clients supported by a messaging solution hosted by an Internet Service Provider or if you are managing your Outlook clients in POP3 mode, your Microsoft Exchange Server 2K provides an array of enhanced features in the areas of ease of administration, responsiveness, traffic volume, robustness, and collaboration:
Unlike the store-and-forward technique used by POP3 messaging, MS Exchange Server 2K uses a central-store model that frees clients from dependence on a specific workstation or notebook computer, reduces vulnerability to hardware failure or virus attacks, and allows both on-line and off-line email, automatic backup, and advanced sharing and team tasks.
MS Exchange 2000 Server has strong collaboration features that allow teams to increase productivity by sharing datebooks, addresses, email and data.
The versatility of MS Exchange 2000 Server makes it easy to integrate third-party security software or support wireless handhelds such as the Research in Motion BlackBerry.
Microsoft Exchange Server 2000 permits complete live backup without affecting users, enabling non-stop operation by eliminating scheduled shutdowns and administrative blackouts.
