Hello! I’m a little confused with the differences between Exchange 5.5 and Exchange 2000/2003; can anyone explain the differences between the two? And what is the Network Infrastructure (Bandwidth and Latency, Usage, Messaging System, Location of Servers) when installing Exchange 2003?
Microsoft Exchange 5.5 and Exchange 2000/2003
The primary difference of these two softwares is how it holds its contacts. If what is important for you is having an Active Directory, then you can settle with an Exchange 2000 / 2003 Server because it doesn't possess directory or directory service, otherwise you may need an Exchange 5.5 instead. Exchange 2000 / 2003 Server also promotes conference facility and chat with your network. The prerequisite of having an Exchange Server 2003 is to have a system which is a Domain Controller with ASP.Net Service. There are a lot differences but it's up to you to decide which is best for your needs. Well, network infrastructure is an interconnection between a network access, wires and cable or basically one or more computer that requires a router and a strong internet connection which provides data transaction that fits its purpose.
