Recommended post SP4 fixes for Exchange 5.5


First of all, I want to let you know that I highly recommend that you run Exchange 2003 since the support date for Exchange 5.5 has already past (and 2003 rocks!), but since so many companies are still running 5.5 I wanted to forward you a list that I use. 


 


Some of these will require a call to PSS in order to get the fixes.  As always, TEST these fixes in your test lab before deploying in your production environment.


 


Credit: This list was first composed by my friend Ross Smith IV.  I only slightly modified it.

    Hi Gerod,

    This list is sorted on the installation path or you just typed as you remember those links.

    Please, can you let me know the correct order for install ?

    Thanks.

    Benji

  2. Gerod Serafin says:

    You can install them in the order they are listed.

  3. Lawrence Dee says:

    Here’s the results of 20+ hours research on this, and some feedback from msprivate newsgroup support.

    Hope this helps.

    FYI
    I have this in a Word file, with color highlighting, hyperlinks, and other formatting to make this easier to read.
