Benefits of MS Exchange 2000 Server Vs. Microsoft Exchange Server 5.5
Microsoft Exchange Server 2000 offers important enhancements in functionality compared to MS Exchange Server 5.5 in vital areas including accessibility, ease of administration, security, stability, capacity, and speed.

  • The 2000 version of Microsoft Exchange Server represented a dramatic increase in functionality in comparison to the Microsoft Exchange 5.5 web client. Microsoft Exchange Server 2K delivers a good rendition of the older Outlook interface, including calendaring and utilities. Because of this, authorized mobile workers can enjoy full, secure access to email even in the absence of their mobile computer. The only thing mobile clients need is a web accessible PC that has a conventional web browser.
  • In contrast to Exchange 5.5, which has its own directory, Microsoft Exchange Server 2000 utilizes MS Active Directory, offering a much simplified management and security model. This makes Microsoft Exchange Server 2K simpler to administer and support and also provides tighter security.
  • Microsoft Exchange Server 2K incorporates a strong foundation for transparently adding third-party software such as virus detection programs and anti-spamming tools. MS Exchange Server 2000's strong API avoids the risks existing with Exchange 5.5 when integrating third-party utilities.
  • MS Exchange Server 2000 offers significantly increased capacity and performance compared to Exchange 5.5. Therefore you can have more and bigger mailboxes and gain quicker remote access.

Advantages of Microsoft Exchange Server 2000 Vs. an ISP-based or POP3 Email System
If your business currently has users supported by a messaging system hosted by an ISP or if you are running your Outlook clients in POP3 mode, your Microsoft Exchange 2000 Server provides a wealth of enhanced capabilities in the areas of ease of administration, performance, capacity, robustness, and groupware:

  • Unlike the store-and-forward model used by POP3 messaging, MS Exchange Server 2000 uses a central-store architecture that frees clients from reliance on a single workstation or notebook computer, 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 2000 has strong collaboration capabilities that enable work groups to increase productivity by sharing calendaring, address books, email and files.
  • The versatility of MS Exchange Server 2K makes it possible to integrate third-party security software or support wireless handhelds such as the Research in Motion BlackBerry.
  • MS Exchange Server 2000 permits full live backup without disturbing clients, enabling 24x7 operation by eliminating scheduled shutdowns and maintenance blackouts.
