exchange 2000 requires Active Directory.  I would guess MAYBE you could use
Samba 4.  BUt I don't know if Samba 4 supports all the account attributes
that Exchange would require.  I would guess not. 

postfile/amavis/spamassasin/mail relaying would be topics for  forums.

Windows 2000 is no longer supported my Microsoft.

Subject: [Samba] Samba PDC & Exchange 2000 Server

I presently have a 2 server system a Sambe PDC and a mail server running
Bynari Insight Server and we use Bynari connector to connect our Outlook
2000 clients to the Insight Server. It works well enough. BUT.... Bynari are
stopping support for Outlook 2000.
For us the upgrade all our copies of Outlook is expensive and we have all
the functionality we need.
So, we have MS Server 2000 and Exchange 2000 which we used to use, but had
all sorts hacking issues etc when we used it for our Domain and Mail. I've
been thinking that we could continue with our Samba PDC and use something
like postfix, with amavis and spamassasin to act as a SMTP relay agent to an
Exchange 2000 stand alone server which is fully isolated behind our firewall
on a protected subnet and use port forwarding to enable Webmail and OpenVPN
server to access the mail from outside.
Does anyone know how to connect Exchange to Samba & Openldap and also what
would I have to do to set up postfix, amavis and spamassasin to act as a

Any thoughts I'm sure someone has wanted to do this before. I'm loathed to
move away from a linux mail server but costs make it attractive.
