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.

VMware workstation license not for servers

I discussed this at a local VMware seminar recently and they said the license for VMware Workstation doesn't allow one to run a server in it. So you'd have to upgrade to GSX and that's noticibly more money.

Running another machine, even a lower end one, would probably be a better choice, or switching more of your systems to VMware and loading it in with it even better.

For the worries about Exchange 5.5, I'd probably just upgrade to something newer then try to hack things together like this, IMHO.

VMware Workstation will happily run NT4 server, we've used it for app development.
