Microsoft Exchange 2000 Server
Microsoft Exchange Server 2000 is the initial messaging solution developed by Microsoft to utilize AD directory services instead of a non-standard directory structure. This design innovation made Microsoft Exchange Server 2000 dramatically simpler to manage and Microsoft Exchange 2000 Server is still the heart of the messaging environment used by numerous companies.

Extensive experience with Microsoft's email technology makes Progent one of the most knowledgeable IT consulting organizations in the U.S. for maintaining messaging solutions based on MS Exchange 2000 Server. Progent is experienced at assisting small businesses who continue to run Microsoft Exchange 2000 Server and Progent can help your company understand the business value of upgrading your Microsoft Exchange Server 2K system to a current release of Exchange. (See Progent's Microsoft Exchange Server 2016 migration support services and Exchange 2013 expertise.)

Benefits of MS Exchange Server 2K Vs. MS Exchange Server 5.5
MS Exchange Server 2000 features major improvements in capability compared to MS Exchange Server 5.5 in key areas including accessibility, manageability, security, stability, capacity, and performance.

  • The 2000 version of MS Exchange Server brought a dramatic increase in features in comparison to the Exchange 5.5 web interface. MS Exchange 2000 Server offers a solid rendition of the traditional Outlook interface, including calendaring and utilities. Consequently, mobile users can have full, protected access to email even without a notebook. The only thing they require is an Internet-connected PC that has a conventional web browser.
  • In contrast to Microsoft Exchange 5.5, which has its own directory, MS Exchange 2000 Server uses Active Directory, offering a much simplified administration and security architecture. This makes MS Exchange 2000 Server easier to manage and support and also provides better security.
  • MS Exchange Server 2000 has a strong architecture for transparently integrating third-party applications such as virus detection programs and anti-spamming tools. Microsoft Exchange Server 2K's tested API eliminates the instability associated with Exchange 5.5 when integrating third-party utilities.
  • Microsoft Exchange 2000 Server offers dramatically improved capacity and responsiveness over Exchange 5.5. Therefore you can have more and larger mailboxes and enjoy faster remote connectivity.

Benefits of MS Exchange Server 2000 Vs. an ISP-based or POP3 Email System
If your organization currently has users relying on a messaging system hosted by an ISP or if you are managing your Outlook clients in POP3 mode, your MS Exchange Server 2K provides a wealth of enhanced capabilities in the categories of ease of administration, performance, capacity, robustness, and collaboration:

  • Unlike the store-and-forward model followed by POP3 messaging, MS Exchange Server 2K uses a central-store architecture that liberates clients from dependence on a single desktop or notebook PC, lowers vulnerability to hardware breakdowns or malicious software, and permits both on-line and off-line email, automatic backup, and advanced sharing and collaboration.
  • MS Exchange 2000 Server has strong collaboration features that enable teams to improve productivity by sharing datebooks, addresses, email and files.
  • The versatility of Microsoft Exchange Server 2K makes it easy to integrate third-party security software or accommodate wireless handhelds such as the Research in Motion BlackBerry.
  • Microsoft Exchange 2000 Server allows complete live backup without disturbing clients, making possible non-stop operation by eliminating scheduled shutdowns and administrative blackouts.
