One of my users that purchased an iphone has trouble setting up email on her phone. Gets the following message: Exchange account verification failed. I wonder if iPhone works with Exchange at all and if so do I need to do anything on the exchange server?

You need Activesync on your Exchange server for this to work
I am not sure Exchange 2000 supports iPhones.

Exchange 2003, 2007 ,2010 supports this feature.

I concur - if you're really using Exchange 2000 it's long past time to upgrade.

Exchange 2000 does not support Activesync - the first version of Exchange that supports it is Exchange 2003 with SP1, but SP2 makes the experience a whole lot less painful.

You either need to upgrade from Exchange 2000 to something newer or configure an account on the iPhone using IMAP / POP3, not Exchange.
