    Exchange 2003 or 2007 for internal email only.

    A school near me wants to install Exchange for internal use only. We currently use 2003 and it does everything we want and need for internal use.

    Is it worth going for 2007 and paying a little bit more now for the long term? I know we need a 64bit server for 2007 but a new server will be purchased any way so thisis not an issue.

    Or don't spend anything and go with Zimbra?

    I would stick with 2003 it does what you need it to, its running fine Don't fix something that isn't broken. Exchange Server 2003 is compatible with Outlook 2007 so it there any reason to upgrade?

    I have both 2007 and 2003 running and would recommend sticking with 2003 for now. The 64bit thing is what would swing it for me as its an entire hardware upgrade and seems a pointless requirement to me.

    There are still loads of bugs in 2007 for things like permissions, routing and public folders but hopefully SP1 will fix all these.

    Installing 2007 is just creating more work for yourself(although it is good fun on a test machine). I wouldn't install it in a production environment quite yet.
