Exchange 2000. 2003 won't run on 2000 server. Exchange 2000 will include all the functionality that you need to collaborate using office/outlook.

Exchange 2003 will absolutely run on WIndows 2000 Server.  Your information is false.  You should be sure of your answer before you make it.  Exchange 2000 will do what you need, but so will Exchange 2003.  You may have more issues with 2003 since it is fairly new.  But whmatos is incoorect in telling you that it wont run.

You can look at http://www.microsoft.com/exchange/evaluation/sysreqs/2003.asp for details

Oh sorry about that, my comment was meant to point towards darth
To get more details.  DO you already have a server set up?  If not you may want to look into Small Business Server.  It comes with everything you need and for an office that small its a good way to go.  

Personally I wwould stick with Exchange 2000 and Windows 2000.  It sounds like this is a small office and they wont be able to deal with down time while you fiddle with 2003.  It is proving to be fairly stable, but I wouldnt risk it yet.  You can always purchase the software with software assurance and be eligible for Exchange and Windows 2003 later.  You also mentioned that you wanted a local messagin system, if you are talking about Instant messaging, that is no longer included with Exchange 2003 anyway.  They have bundled it into a different product that is not done yet anyway.   With outlook and exchange, you can create and share schedules, and assign permsissions as needed.

Hope that helps

You are quite correct. Exchange Server 2003 runs on either Windows 2000 Server SP3 or a Windows Server 2003 operating system.

I was confused as Exchange 2000 Server will run on Windows 2000 Server, but it cannot run on Windows Server 2003.
