Win XP Outlook 2000 Intracompany mail

I currently have an 8 employee office which has intraoffice email using Outlook 2000 on Windows XP computers.  We use a WGPO running on a Win 98 computer as the WGPO Server - it also acts as workstation.      Only 2 of the 8 have an internet connection thru dialup.   I want to replace the Win 98 computer which has the WGPO server with a Win XP computer and get rid of the Win 98 one.   I don't believe a WGPO Server is compatible on Win XP.  Is there a simple solution for the intracompany mail with  Outlook 2000 Win XP setup?

Thanks

You can still set up/administrate a MSMail post office on a windows XP machine. Visit the website below, and download the utility. After installing it there will be an option in the controls panel for "Microsoft Mail Postoffice"

The solution on that link states it is for Outlook 2002/2003.  No mention if it works with Outlook 2000.  Any other suggestions?

Hi Rob623,
    The thing is, Outlook 2000 supports Microsft Mail natively, so you do not need to install the third party update above for your Outlook to function with the post office. However since the Windows XP installer no longer provides a Post Office admin utility you would need to download and install it on your mail server so that you can create and administer your post office.

I hope that helps. Sorry I was not clear before.

God bless!
