I disagree with your previous answer about not being able to use OWA 5.5 SP4 with Exchange 2000 in n

I just read your answer to the question about using Web Access in native mode. I disagree that it can't be done. It is possible to use Outlook Web Access (OWA) 5.5 SP4 with Exchange 2000 in native mode. It's not easy, but it can be done!!!


This is a W2K server with OWA 5.5 SP4. The backend-server is a W2K server with Std. E2K.

Thanks for your response. I stand corrected. In fact, as per;en-us;Q260832, this appears to be a supported configuration. But why you would want to use OWA 5.5 over Exchange 2000's OWA? I can see perhaps some limited benefits during a migration, but IMHO, the best experience all around will be with the OWA 2000 client.
