Exchange Server and Windows 98

Question:
Can Exchange Server run with Windows 98 or does it require NT? I want to use Outlook as a common pool of contact information within my office. However, when I tried it two years ago Outlook required Exchange Server to share files effectively between users and Exchange Server required the NT platform. Has that changed?

Answer:
Exchange Server 5.5 requires Windows NT Server or Windows 2000 Server (or higher) to run.

Exchange 2000 is more stringent yet: it requires Windows 2000 Server (or higher) to run.

Outlook 2000 does improve somewhat on the NetFolders feature that debuted in Outlook 98 and promptly proved itself wholly unreliable. NetFolders are now just somewhat unreliable.

Still…worth a try for a small shop.
