However, Exchange 5.5 runs on Windows 2000 with the proper service pack
levels, and will run against an Active Directory domain. It doesn't
utilize all of the features of AD, obviously, but it sees the domain
through the legacy interfaces.

As I mentioned in another post, the apps I was referring to were things
like connectors that rely on the Exchange 5.5 Directory Service.
Sometimes there's no reason why the program won't run on a later version
of Exchange, but the vendor never certified it and the company
can't/won't spend the money to switch to a different application.
