Exchange 2000 Server
Microsoft Exchange Server 2K was the initial messaging platform developed by Microsoft to utilize AD directory services instead of an internal directory structure. This architectural enhancement made Microsoft Exchange 2000 Server dramatically simpler to administer and MS Exchange Server 2000 continues to be the heart of the messaging environment used by numerous small businesses.

Extensive background with Microsoft's email platforms makes Progent among the most knowledgeable IT consulting firms in the United States for supporting messaging solutions powered by MS Exchange 2000 Server. Progent is experienced at helping small businesses who still run MS Exchange 2000 Server and Progent can help your organization assess the costs and benefits of upgrading your Microsoft Exchange 2000 Server system to an up-to-date version of Exchange. (Refer to Progent's Microsoft Exchange Server 2016 migration planning and support and Exchange Server 2013 expertise.)

Advantages of MS Exchange 2000 Server Compared to Microsoft Exchange 5.5 Server
Microsoft Exchange 2000 Server offers major improvements in functionality compared to MS Exchange 5.5 Server in vital areas such as connectivity, manageability, protection, stability, scalability, and speed.

  • The 2000 release of MS Exchange Server brought a dramatic increase in features over the MS Exchange 5.5 web interface. MS Exchange Server 2000 delivers a good rendition of the familiar Outlook interface, including scheduling and utilities. Because of this, authorized mobile workers can have full, protected access to email even in the absence of a notebook. All they require is a web accessible PC with a standard web browser.
  • In contrast to Exchange 5.5, which has its own directory, MS Exchange 2000 Server uses MS Active Directory, offering a much simplified administration and security model. This makes MS Exchange Server 2K simpler to manage and support and also offers tighter security.
  • MS Exchange Server 2000 incorporates a robust architecture for seamlessly adding third-party applications such as virus scanning packages and anti-spamming tools. MS Exchange Server 2K's strong Application Programming Interface eliminates the risks existing with Exchange 5.5 when integrating third-party add-ins.
  • Microsoft Exchange Server 2000 provides dramatically improved capacity and performance compared to Exchange 5.5. Therefore you can have more and bigger mailboxes and enjoy faster off-site access.

Advantages of Microsoft Exchange 2000 Server Compared to an ISP-based or POP3 Email System
If your company still has clients supported by a messaging solution hosted by an ISP or if you are running some Outlook clients in POP3 mode, your Microsoft Exchange 2000 Server provides a wealth of improved capabilities in the categories of manageability, performance, capacity, robustness, and groupware:

  • In contrast to the store-and-forward model used by POP3 messaging, MS Exchange 2000 Server uses a central-store architecture that liberates clients from dependence on a single desktop or notebook computer, lowers exposure to component failure or malicious software, and permits on-line and off-line email, automatic backup, and advanced sharing and collaboration.
  • Microsoft Exchange 2000 Server offers strong collaboration capabilities that allow work groups to increase efficiency by sharing datebooks, addresses, messages and data.
  • The flexibility of MS Exchange Server 2000 makes it possible to add third-party security enhancements or support wireless smartphones such as the Research in Motion BlackBerry.
  • Microsoft Exchange Server 2000 allows full live backup without affecting clients, enabling non-stop operation by eliminating periodic downtime and administrative interruptions.
