Exchange 2000 Server
Microsoft Exchange Server 2000 was the initial messaging solution developed by Microsoft to utilize Active Directory rather than a non-standard directory structure. This design innovation made Microsoft Exchange Server 2000 dramatically easier to administer and MS Exchange Server 2000 continues to be the basis of the email system of numerous small businesses.

Years of background with Microsoft's Exchange platforms makes Progent one of the most qualified IT consulting organizations in the United States for maintaining email solutions based on MS Exchange Server 2000. Progent is expert at helping small companies who still operate MS Exchange Server 2000 and Progent can assist your company assess the costs and benefits of migrating your MS Exchange 2000 Server environment to a more recent release of Exchange. (See Progent's Exchange Server 2016 migration support services and Exchange Server 2013 expertise.)

Advantages of Microsoft Exchange Server 2000 Over Microsoft Exchange 5.5 Server
Microsoft Exchange 2000 Server offers important improvements in capability over Microsoft Exchange 5.5 Server in key areas such as accessibility, manageability, protection, robustness, scalability, and performance.

  • The 2000 release of Microsoft Exchange Server brought a dramatic increase in features in comparison to the Microsoft Exchange 5.5 web interface. MS Exchange Server 2000 offers a solid rendition of the traditional Outlook GUI, including scheduling and tools. Because of this, authorized mobile users can enjoy full, secure access to email even in the absence of a notebook. The only thing they need is an Internet-connected computer that has a conventional web browser.
  • In contrast to Microsoft Exchange 5.5, which uses its own directory, Microsoft Exchange Server 2K uses MS Active Directory, providing a much simplified administration and security model. This makes Microsoft Exchange 2000 Server simpler to manage and support and in addition provides tighter security.
  • MS Exchange Server 2000 incorporates a robust architecture for seamlessly adding third-party software such as virus detection packages and anti-spamming tools. Microsoft Exchange 2000 Server's strong Application Programming Interface avoids the risks associated with Exchange 5.5 when integrating third-party utilities.
  • MS Exchange 2000 Server provides dramatically increased capacity and responsiveness compared to Exchange 5.5. This means you can have more and bigger mailboxes and enjoy faster off-site connectivity.

Advantages of Microsoft Exchange Server 2K Vs. an ISP-based or POP3 Email System
If your business currently has clients supported by a messaging solution hosted by an Internet Service Provider or if you are running some Outlook users in POP3 mode, your MS Exchange 2000 Server offers a wealth of improved capabilities in the areas of ease of administration, performance, traffic volume, availability, and groupware:

  • Unlike the store-and-forward model followed by POP3 email systems, Microsoft Exchange Server 2K implements a central-store model that frees clients from dependence on a specific workstation or notebook computer, lowers vulnerability to component breakdowns or virus attacks, and allows on-line and off-line email, automatic backup, and sophisticated sharing and collaboration.
  • Microsoft Exchange Server 2K offers strong collaboration features that allow work groups to increase efficiency by sharing calendaring, addresses, email and files.
  • The versatility of MS Exchange Server 2000 makes it easy to add third-party security software or accommodate wireless smartphones such as the RIM BlackBerry.
  • Microsoft Exchange Server 2000 allows full live backup without affecting users, enabling non-stop operation by eliminating periodic downtime and administrative blackouts.
