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.

Another option

Setup SME Server behind a firewall
port forward port 25 only to the SME Server
SME Server is also a firewall, put it in front of your network and your Exchange server
Delegate the Exchange server in SME Server
Install ClamAV and Spam Assasin (or ASSP) in the SME Server to cover the virus/spam issue.

Don't bother updating Exchange ever again
