Microsoft Exchange 2000 Server

What's New in Microsoft Exchange 2000 Server Service Pack 2?

The following information lists the updated features in Exchange 2000 Server SP2:

Support for CC:Mail and MS Mail connectors is changing.

If you are currently using either CC:Mail or MS Mail, you can continue to install, upgrade, and use these connectors as long as you are running Windows 2000 Server or earlier. If you run a version of Windows that was released after Windows 2000 Server, the connectors will not function.

If you would like more information about these connectors, and you are running Windows 2000 Server or earlier, go to Microsoft Exchange 2000 Server Product Documentation. Click Connecting to Other Messaging Systems, Working with Connectors, How To, and then clickConnect to Another Messaging System. There you will find complete documentation on CC:Mail and MS Mail connectors. 

Exchange 2000 Server SP1 and SP2 now generate URLs in meeting requests downloaded by a POP3 or IMAP4 client.

When a meeting request is downloaded from a POP3 or IMAP4 client, a URL to the meeting request is included in the message. The POP3 or IMAP4 user can click the URL to go to the Outlook Web Access meeting request and accept the appointment to have it automatically added to his or her calendar.

Note   If you use this feature with POP3 clients, you must configure the POP3 client to keep a copy of the message on the server. If the POP3 client is configured to delete mail from the server after it has been downloaded to the client, clicking the URL within the meeting request will result in an HTTP 404 error indicating that the Outlook Web Access meeting request is not available.
