benefits of Exchange 2007

I am in searching of the benefits of upgrading my current Exchange 2000 system to 2007. The main challenge of using Exchange 2000 & Outlook is that when the user is on remote, Outlook does not work well with VPN, mostly due to the lousy local network connection such as hotel wireless; however, Outlook Web Access (OWA) seems to be working at acceptable level. For example, when I traveled to the far east, it's impossible to use VPN because of the poor inter-continental connection. I got by with using OWA.

My question is can I use Outlook but set it up to use HTTP or Port 80 with all the Exchange benefits? I do know the OWA in 2007 is nice.

On top of this, why do I need to upgrade to 2007?

Hi,
You would need to upgrade to Exchange 2007 for following reasons::::
  • Focus on Compliance & Rules
  • Improved Security & AntiSPam features
  • Improved Client Access (Anywhere/Autodiscover/ActiveSync/OWA)
  • Improved Storage & Management
  • Ease of Administration
  • Unified Messaging

Hi,
It it like working on Outlook from office, if you can have OWA working, then Outlook anywhere will work too....you do not need VPN connection.
MS is trying to move out of VPN as much as posisble
Thanks
