Exchange 2000 Server
MS Exchange Server 2K is the initial email solution developed by Microsoft to utilize Active Directory rather than an internal directory structure. This design innovation made Microsoft Exchange 2000 Server significantly easier to administer and Microsoft Exchange Server 2K continues to be the basis of the email system of many companies.

Extensive background with Microsoft's Exchange platforms makes Progent among the most qualified computer consulting firms in the United States for maintaining email solutions based on MS Exchange 2000 Server. Progent is experienced at assisting small businesses who continue to run MS Exchange 2000 Server and Progent can help your organization understand the business value of migrating your MS Exchange Server 2000 environment to a current version of Exchange. (Refer to Progent's Microsoft Exchange 2016 upgrade support services and Exchange 2013 consulting.)

Advantages of Microsoft Exchange Server 2000 Over MS Exchange 5.5 Server
Microsoft Exchange Server 2000 offers important enhancements in capability compared to Microsoft Exchange 5.5 Server in key areas such as accessibility, manageability, protection, stability, scalability, and performance.

  • The 2K release of MS Exchange Server represented a significant improvement in features in comparison to the Microsoft Exchange 5.5 web client. Microsoft Exchange 2000 Server offers a solid implementation of the older Outlook GUI, including scheduling and utilities. Because of this, mobile users can have full, secure access to email even in the absence of their mobile computer. The only thing they need is an Internet-connected PC that has a conventional web browser.
  • In contrast to Microsoft Exchange 5.5, which has its built-in directory, Microsoft Exchange 2000 Server utilizes Microsoft Active Directory, providing a greatly simplified management and security architecture. This makes MS Exchange 2000 Server simpler to manage and support and also provides tighter security.
  • Microsoft Exchange 2000 Server incorporates a strong architecture for transparently adding third-party software such as virus scanning packages and anti-spamming utilities. Microsoft Exchange Server 2K's strong API eliminates the risks associated with Exchange 5.5 when integrating third-party utilities.
  • Microsoft Exchange Server 2K offers significantly increased capacity and performance over Exchange 5.5. This means you can have more and larger mailboxes and enjoy faster remote access.

Advantages of MS Exchange Server 2000 Over an ISP-based or POP3 Email System
If your business currently has clients relying on an email solution hosted by an Internet Service Provider or if you are running your Outlook clients in POP3 mode, your MS Exchange Server 2000 provides an array of enhanced features in the areas of manageability, responsiveness, capacity, robustness, and collaboration:

  • Unlike the store-and-forward technique followed by POP3 email systems, Microsoft Exchange Server 2K uses a central-store model that frees clients from dependence on a specific workstation or notebook PC, reduces vulnerability to component failure or virus attacks, and allows on-line and off-line email, auto-backup, and sophisticated sharing and collaboration.
  • Microsoft Exchange Server 2000 offers strong collaboration features that enable work groups to increase efficiency by sharing datebooks, addresses, messages and data.
  • The flexibility of Microsoft Exchange Server 2000 makes it possible to integrate third-party security enhancements or accommodate wireless handhelds such as the Research in Motion BlackBerry.
  • Microsoft Exchange Server 2000 allows complete on-line backup without disturbing users, enabling non-stop operation by eliminating periodic shutdowns and maintenance interruptions.
