  • Hi,

     

    Thank you for the post.

     

    Before going any further, I’d like to confirm what do you mean about “exchange 05”?

     

    As far as I know, Microsoft Antigen for Exchange will be protect Microsoft Exchange 2000 Server and Microsoft Exchange Server 2003 environments. Forefront Security for Exchange Server is used to protect for Exchange 2007. Forefront Protection 2010 for Exchange Server provides protection for Exchange Server 2010 and Exchange Server 2007.

  • Hi Elvis,

     

    As far as I know, Exchange Server 2003 has its build number of 6.5. For more information, please refer to this: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/158530

  • Hi,

    Nick is correct Exchange 6.5 = Exchange 2003, so you can use Microsoft Antigen for Exchange http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/bb914083.aspx , Forefront for exchange is not supported with Exchange 2003
