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.

>And this is exactly why many Microsoft products are potential security risks because people like you think almost everyone can maintain such installations.
Many Windows Admins have no clue what they are doing, just clicking a few buttons all day....

This is patently untrue. There is absolutely nothing inherently insecure about Either Exchange or Windows2000 and above. Patches come regularly and are easy to install.
