Exchange 2000 Server
Microsoft Exchange 2000 Server was the initial messaging platform released Microsoft to utilize AD directory services instead of a built-in directory structure. This architectural enhancement made Microsoft Exchange Server 2000 significantly simpler to support and MS Exchange 2000 Server continues to be the basis of the messaging system of many companies.

Extensive background with Microsoft's Exchange technology makes Progent among the most qualified computer consulting organizations in the U.S. for maintaining messaging environments based on Microsoft Exchange Server 2000. Progent is expert at assisting small businesses who continue to operate Microsoft Exchange 2000 Server and Progent can help your organization understand the business value of migrating your Microsoft Exchange 2000 Server environment to a more recent release of Exchange. (See Progent's Microsoft Exchange 2016 migration support and Exchange 2013 expertise.)

Advantages of MS Exchange 2000 Server Compared to Microsoft Exchange Server 5.5
MS Exchange Server 2K offers important enhancements in capability compared to Microsoft Exchange 5.5 Server in vital areas such as accessibility, manageability, security, robustness, scalability, and performance.

  • The 2000 version of MS Exchange Server represented a significant increase in functionality over the Exchange 5.5 web client. Microsoft Exchange 2000 Server delivers a solid implementation of the traditional Outlook GUI, including scheduling and utilities. Consequently, authorized mobile workers can have full, protected access to email even in the absence of their mobile computer. All mobile clients require is an Internet-connected PC with a standard web browser.
  • Unlike Exchange 5.5, which uses its own directory, Microsoft Exchange Server 2000 utilizes Active Directory, offering a much simplified management and security architecture. This makes Microsoft Exchange Server 2K easier to administer and support and in addition offers tighter security.
  • Microsoft Exchange Server 2000 incorporates a strong architecture for seamlessly adding third-party software such as virus scanning programs and anti-spamming utilities. MS Exchange Server 2000's strong API eliminates the risks existing with Exchange 5.5 when integrating third-party add-ins.
  • MS Exchange Server 2K provides dramatically increased capacity and performance compared to Exchange 5.5. Therefore you can deploy more and larger mailboxes and gain faster remote connectivity.

Benefits of MS Exchange 2000 Server Over an ISP-based or POP3 Email System
If your company currently has users supported by a messaging solution hosted by an Internet Service Provider or if you are running some Outlook users in POP3 mode, your Microsoft Exchange 2000 Server offers a wealth of improved capabilities in the categories of ease of administration, performance, capacity, availability, and collaboration:

  • In contrast to the store-and-forward technique used by POP3 messaging, Microsoft Exchange Server 2000 implements a central-store model that liberates clients from reliance on a single desktop or notebook PC, lowers vulnerability to hardware failure or malicious software, and permits on-line and off-line email, auto-backup, and advanced sharing and team tasks.
  • MS Exchange Server 2K offers strong collaboration features that allow teams to increase productivity by sharing datebooks, addresses, email and files.
  • The versatility of Microsoft Exchange Server 2K makes it possible to add third-party security enhancements or accommodate wireless handhelds such as the RIM BlackBerry.
  • Microsoft Exchange 2000 Server permits full on-line backup without affecting users, making possible non-stop operation by eliminating periodic downtime and administrative interruptions.
