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.

your right the world doesnt end, but the pain in the butt does begin. if youve ever had to explain to management jerk a why he cant send pictures of a dog eating poop to his friends then you already know why people like to keep their email servers up and running.

Try telling that to some of my superiors. That's the same exact quote I say to my coworkers but some how upper management just doesn't believe it.

You must live in a fantasy world. Email IS mission critical in business. If email goes down in my organzation, heads roll.
