Microsoft Exchange 2000
MS Exchange Server 2000 was the first email platform developed by Microsoft to utilize AD directory services instead of a non-standard directory system.

Years of background with Microsoft's Exchange platforms makes Progent among the most qualified IT consulting organizations in the United States for supporting messaging solutions based on MS Exchange Server 2000. Progent is experienced at assisting small companies who still operate MS Exchange Server 2000 and Progent can assist you assess the costs and benefits of migrating your MS Exchange Server 2K environment to a current release of Exchange. (See Progent's Microsoft Exchange 2016 upgrade support services and Microsoft Exchange 2013 expertise.)

Benefits of MS Exchange Server 2K Over MS Exchange Server 5.5
MS Exchange Server 2K offers important enhancements in capability over Microsoft Exchange Server 5.5 in vital areas including accessibility, manageability, security, robustness, capacity, and speed.

  • The 2K release of Microsoft Exchange Server represented a dramatic improvement in functionality in comparison to the Microsoft Exchange 5.5 web interface. Microsoft Exchange Server 2000 delivers a solid implementation of the familiar Outlook GUI, including calendaring and tools. Consequently, authorized mobile users can enjoy unrestricted, secure availability of email even in the absence of a notebook. The only thing mobile clients require is an Internet-connected computer with a conventional web browser.
  • In contrast to Exchange 5.5, which uses its own directory, MS Exchange Server 2K utilizes MS Active Directory, providing a greatly simplified administration and security model. This makes Microsoft Exchange Server 2K simpler to manage and support and in addition provides better security.
  • MS Exchange Server 2000 incorporates a robust foundation for seamlessly integrating third-party applications such as virus scanning packages and anti-spamming tools. MS Exchange Server 2K's tested Application Programming Interface eliminates the instability existing with Exchange 5.5 when integrating third-party add-ins.
  • Microsoft Exchange Server 2K provides significantly increased capacity and performance compared to Exchange 5.5. This means you can deploy more and larger mailboxes and enjoy quicker off-site access.

  • In contrast to the store-and-forward technique used by POP3 email systems, MS Exchange Server 2K implements a central-store model that frees users from dependence on a specific workstation or notebook PC, reduces vulnerability to component failure or malicious software, and allows both on-line and off-line email, automatic backup, and advanced sharing and collaboration.
