I have some questions about Exchange 5.5, 2000, and 2003 server.

First is 5.5 cannot be AD integrated by some slick patch or upgrade, besides 2003 or 2003 exchange server?

What are the main differences between 2000 and 2003 exchange servers?  Are the transaction logs, AD integration, backup procedures and management virtually the same?  This information is going to aid me greatly.

Hi - 5.5 has no AD direct integration, however 5.5 can exist in AD environment using the PDC emulator on the network to manage logons etc, basically it will work but not sure what you mean by 'integrated'.

Here is a good comparison pdf from 5.5 upto 2003

http://www.colltech.com/docs/Microsoft-Exchange-Server-2003-Features-Comparison.pdf

There are differences between 2000 and 2003 and it is too big a statement to say they are virtually the same but there are portions that work the same.  The above link should show you the differences between 2000/2003

Hope this helps

Rob
