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.

But why not just install Exchange 2003 ?

Maybe I always missing something here ... exchange is potentially more vunerable do to its largely installed user base, ok. Its expensive to install, fair enough ...

But, I can hire an MCSE or MCSA for buttons, any day of the week, stick him on site and have him maintain them. No special experience , no special skills. He leaves , get another.

So the implementation savings described have to cover the cost of supporting the system when operating it.

Just my narrow view , but one that always seems to be
missed ...
