Hi Darwin, 
I hope that I am understanding correctly what you plan on doing. Exchange 5.5 
can exist in a 2000 / 2003 Active Directory structure, however since Microsoft 
is dropping support for it, you may want to consider migration to Exchange 2003.
However if your management decides not too.. You should install just run the 
active directory connector, 
although it will run with out it.
If you want to install Exchange 5.5 on Windows 2000 server, You just need to 
make sure that you have the Exchange 5.5 service pack 3 and above.
For the pro's and con's, just look at the feature diffrences in both products 
on Microsoft's website for Exchange at . Microsoft has a wealth of 
on this subject.

Hi Gurus...


Have you ever seen the case that a customer or corporation migrate the Whole 
domain to Windows 2K3 and leave the Exchange Server 5.5 on running on Windows 
NT4.0, and no plan to migrate it, all they want to do is migrate the server to 
Windows 2000.


How can we do this?, Are there any constraints?, What are the risks? Is there a 
roadmap to do this?


Thanks in advance.
