Exchange 2000: Installation, Migration, Security, and Troubleshooting
Exchange 2000 Server
MS Exchange Server 2000 was the first messaging platform from Microsoft to use AD directory services rather than a non-standard directory system. This design innovation made MS Exchange Server 2K dramatically easier to administer and Microsoft Exchange 2000 Server is still the foundation of the email environment used by numerous small businesses.
Years of experience with Microsoft's email platforms makes Progent among the most qualified IT consulting firms in the U.S. for supporting messaging environments powered by MS Exchange Server 2000. Progent is expert at helping small businesses who continue to run Microsoft Exchange Server 2000 and Progent can help your company assess the business value of migrating your Microsoft Exchange Server 2K environment to a current release of Exchange.
Advantages of MS Exchange 2000 Server Vs. Microsoft Exchange Server 5.5
Microsoft Exchange Server 2K offers important enhancements in functionality over MS Exchange Server 5.5 in key areas including connectivity, manageability, protection, robustness, scalability, and speed.
The 2000 version of MS Exchange Server represented a dramatic increase in functionality in comparison to the MS Exchange 5.5 web interface. MS Exchange Server 2000 offers a good rendition of the older Outlook GUI, including calendaring and tools. Because of this, authorized mobile workers can enjoy full, secure access to email even in the absence of their mobile computer. All mobile clients need is an Internet-connected computer that has a standard web browser.
In contrast to Exchange 5.5, which uses its own directory, MS Exchange Server 2K uses Active Directory, offering a much simplified management and security architecture. This makes Microsoft Exchange Server 2000 simpler to manage and support and in addition provides better protection.
Microsoft Exchange Server 2K has a strong foundation for transparently integrating third-party software such as virus detection programs and anti-spamming tools. Microsoft Exchange Server 2000's tested API avoids the instability existing with Exchange 5.5 when installing third-party add-ins.
Microsoft Exchange Server 2000 offers dramatically increased capacity and responsiveness over Exchange 5.5. Therefore you can have more and larger mailboxes and gain faster off-site connectivity.
Ways That Progent Can Help You with Microsoft Exchange Server 2000

Benefits of MS Exchange Server 2K Vs. an ISP-based or POP3 Email System
If your business still has clients relying on an email system hosted by an Internet Service Provider or if you are managing your Outlook users in POP3 mode, your MS Exchange Server 2000 offers an array of improved capabilities in the categories of ease of administration, performance, traffic volume, availability, and groupware:
In contrast to the store-and-forward technique followed by POP3 messaging, MS Exchange Server 2000 implements a central-store architecture that frees users from reliance on a specific workstation or notebook computer, lowers vulnerability to component breakdowns or virus attacks, and permits on-line and off-line email, automatic backup, and advanced sharing and collaboration.
Microsoft Exchange Server 2K offers powerful collaboration capabilities that allow teams to increase efficiency by sharing calendaring, address books, messages and files.
The versatility of Microsoft Exchange Server 2K makes it easy to add third-party security enhancements or support wireless handhelds such as the RIM BlackBerry.
MS Exchange 2000 Server allows full on-line backup without affecting clients, enabling 24x7 operation by eliminating scheduled shutdowns and administrative blackouts.
