We have a new Outsourced IT Team that's currently implementing RDP on 
our Exchange Server 2000. Could you tell me where I could find more info 
on how it breaks security best practices? Thanks in advance.

For that kind of money, I'd leave it in place until a problem arises ;)

Stability comes from slow change (or is defined as depending on your
perspective.) That said, if isn't broke, don't fix it.  Conversely, don't
propagate it to others as well.  That's a risk that may not be worth it.  

I'd have to say that it's odd that it worked for you. It should have failed
and been difficult to install on a 2K3 server.

So now for the $64,000 question: On the other clients server, should I leave
the Exchange 2000 ESM already installed on a Windows Server 2003 DC, or
should I remove it?
