I suggest a lot of people need to have a look at exchange 2007 and not just think of exchange 5.5.

Exchange has come a long way, 2003 was a solid product, ive never had a problem with any network it's been installed on, even with gb's of messages.

Exchange 2007 offers voice, universal message access and is now 64bit with a larger message store.

Out of all of the Microsoft products i have always liked exchange the most. The productivity this brings to businesses both large and small is unbeliveable. Thats not to say that the others on the market are bad, Alt-n's Mail Daemon just keeps going from strength to strength with each version for example.

However i still believe Exchange + Outlook is one of the best groupware configurations for a lot of different companies.

Lucky you, but you're wrong here. It's still built on the extremely antiquated DB technology underpinnings (related to Access, I understand) that have plagued Exchange for years. If you don't run into a problem, you're fine. If you do, only your god can help you.

All heaped tall on the same old shaky foundation. Voice is a nice touch, potentially, but hardly a big deal given that phone systems have been in place for many years and aren't likely to get the yank just to be integrated into Outlook. I'll read up on this a bit more... I'm suspicious that this might be a sounds-good-but-doesn't-deliver type feature.

It's not even the slightest bit revolutionary. But I do understand that the integration is the key.

Your information is outdated. Exchange's DB has undergone significant change to add improved transaction, failover, replication, and journaling support.
