Advantages of Microsoft Exchange Server 2K Over MS Exchange Server 5.5
Microsoft Exchange Server 2000 offers important enhancements in functionality compared to MS Exchange Server 5.5 in key areas including accessibility, ease of administration, protection, robustness, scalability, and performance.

  • The 2K release of Microsoft Exchange Server brought a dramatic improvement in functionality in comparison to the Microsoft Exchange 5.5 web interface. Microsoft Exchange 2000 Server delivers a solid rendition of the traditional Outlook GUI, including scheduling and tools. Because of this, authorized mobile users can enjoy unrestricted, secure access to email even without their mobile computer. The only thing mobile clients require is an Internet-connected PC that has a standard web browser.
  • In contrast to Exchange 5.5, which uses its built-in directory, Microsoft Exchange 2000 Server uses Active Directory, providing a greatly simplified administration and security architecture. This makes Microsoft Exchange 2000 Server simpler to administer and support and in addition offers tighter security.
  • MS Exchange Server 2K incorporates a robust architecture for seamlessly integrating third-party applications such as virus scanning packages and anti-spamming utilities. Microsoft Exchange Server 2K's tested API eliminates the instability associated with Exchange 5.5 when integrating third-party utilities.
  • MS Exchange Server 2000 offers dramatically increased capacity and responsiveness compared to Exchange 5.5. This means you can have more and larger mailboxes and enjoy faster remote access.

Benefits of Microsoft Exchange 2000 Server Vs. an ISP-based or POP3 Email Environment
If your company still has clients supported by a messaging system hosted by an Internet Service Provider or if you are running some Outlook users in POP3 mode, your Microsoft Exchange Server 2000 offers an array of improved capabilities in the categories of ease of administration, performance, traffic volume, robustness, and groupware:

  • Unlike the store-and-forward model used by POP3 email systems, MS Exchange Server 2000 uses a central-store architecture that liberates users from reliance on a specific workstation or notebook PC, reduces vulnerability to hardware failure or security breaches, and allows both on-line and off-line email, auto-backup, and advanced sharing and team tasks.
  • Microsoft Exchange Server 2K offers powerful collaboration features that allow teams to improve efficiency by sharing datebooks, addresses, email and data.
  • The versatility of Microsoft Exchange 2000 Server makes it possible to integrate third-party security enhancements or support wireless handhelds such as the RIM BlackBerry.
  • Microsoft Exchange Server 2000 allows full on-line backup without disturbing users, enabling 24x7 operation by avoiding periodic shutdowns and maintenance blackouts.
