Will Exchange 5.5 Server work in a Win2k forest infrastructure?

Will Exchange 5.5 Server work fine in a Windows 2000 forest infrastructure? How can I upgrade my Exchange 5.5 to Exchange 2000 while still keeping NT 4.0 as the OS?

Exchange 5.5 works great in a Windows 2000 environment. You can install and use Exchange 5.5 before or after your OS upgrade. In order to use Exchange 2000, you do need Active Directory, and your Exchange Servers themselves must run on Windows 2000 (preferably with SP2 installed).
