I am looking for links/webpages/info about Microsoft's plan for continued support of Exchange 5.5. What its plans are, when it plans to phase support out, and how it will phase the support out.

I do not believe the support will not end for at least another 5 years.  Microsoft still supports Exchange 4.0 and 5.5, and some MSMail.  :-)

But is there anything official from Microsoft that I can take to my VIP VP. He is only interested in the official position.

Hmm, good luck on finding that, don't mean to sound sarcastic, but i cannot hear MS telling anyone, "OH, you have Exchange 5.5, see you later!" - As jpmarten said, MS still supports MSMail....

Well, Microsoft has outlined its phase out of NT 4 Support, just looking for something like that we are trying to evaluate the cost effectiveness of Upgrade Avantage, and whether or not it will benefit us. This requires determining what we will need to upgrade in the next few years and the expected costs.

Microsoft's general philosophy is to support the current generation product plus the preceding one--they're phasing out NT 4 support because we're now two OS revisions down the line (Win2K, WinXP). Thus they will keep supporting Exchange 5.5 at least until the successor to Exchange 2000 is produced.

I am looking for something like this link but for Exchange

http://www.microsoft.com/ntserver/ProductInfo/Availability/Retiring.asp

Or some articles that talk about Microsofts plans for Exchange. I am fully aware of the "general" information so far provided, but need "hard" information to give to the VP.
