I have had problems with staff adding users through the MMC on XP.  Exchange
does not like it and I have had to delete and re - add the user on the
server.  Has anyone else had trouble with this?

Just want to pass along a big "THANK YOU" to Mark Fugatt and Chris McNally!
The info you supplied on how to administer Exchange 2000 from a WinXP Pro
box saved me a ton of time searching, reading, beating my brains against the
wall and so on.

One further note on the subject:  Chris said maybe you can just go ahead and
install the .NET admin tools pack and then Exchange System Manager.the
answer is no.  You have to install the Windows 2000 Administration Tools
Pack on XP first, before you can install the System Manager from the
Exchange 2000 cd.  You can install just plain ol' 'Exchange 2000', but that
does not install the System Manager part.  You can only install the System
Manager part onto an XP Pro box AFTER you have installed the Windows 2000
Administration Tools Pack on the same XP Pro box.  And yes, you can do this.
Just hit 'Continue' even though the Windows 2000 Administration Tools Pack
setup complains that you are not running the correct version of windows. It
complains, but it lets you go ahead and finish the install.  And then you
pop in the Exchange 2000 cd and FINALLY you are able to choose to install
the System Manager part.  And follow Mark's advice:  install the service
pack for Exchange 2000 (it is now SP3)  after you finish getting the System
Manager installed.

Bottom line:  yes you CAN use a WinXP Pro box to administer Exchange 2000.
You just have to push your way past that 'you can't do this' warning that
you get when you try to install the Windows 2000 Admin Tools Pack onto the
XP box.  After that, there are no more complaints and things install very
smoothly.

Microsofts official answer is to use Microsoft Terminal Services, but this
method has worked for me and many others, but it is not supported by
Microsoft.

1. Install Microsoft Windows 2000 SP2 Admin Pack
2. Install Exchange 2000 System Manager
3. Install Exchange 2000 SP2
4. Uninstall Windows 2000 SP2 Admin Pack
5. Install Windows .NET Server Beta Admin Pack

I have a really stupid question.  I want to admin my Exchange 2000 server
from my desktop.  If memory serves, I need to install a portion of Exchange
onto my local machine.  When I do that, it says I don't have Windows 2000
Admin Tools loaded, but I do.  Am I going about it wrong?  My PC is WinXP
Pro.
