I need to use Exchange instant messaging on Vista. Unfortunately Windows Messenger 5.1 is not compatible with Vista, and MSN (or LIve) messenger doesn't support exchange 2000 messaging.

Any ideas?

Upgrade to OCS is about your only option. Exchange IM is a dead product, has been for some time - so I am not surprised the client doesn't work on Vista.

Ah well, it's just a shame that we own exchange 2000 already and now looks like we have to buy LCS.

It's strange though, Windows Messenger installs (despite Vista complaining) and works fine, except when you have enough chat to require the scroll bar - then it crashes. Someone else has suggested running XP in a VPC windows just for this purpose - slightly overkill i think.

I seem to remember having a PDA on our local network connecting to Exchange IM, may have been 2003SE so i may try that as a work around......
