Internet & Networking Microsoft dropped support for Exchange 5.5 on December 31st, 2004. Exchange 5.5 users can upgrade to Exchange Server 2003, continue to run 5.5 with all accompanied security risks, or switch over to another mail/groupware system.In this article I propose a fourth option that is really options two (run Exchange) and three (run another mail system) combined.

This scenario is too complicated. There are too many variables to have to deal with, and you're still using Exchange 5.5.

I use Samsung Contact (HP Openmail). It works with MS Outlook (and has a web and mobile (PDA) interface), does shared calendars, contacts, and other groupware functions, and runs on a Linux machine instead of a Windows OS.

I saved $3000 in intial costs from upgrading to Exchange 2003 and it has worked out great for me.
