Windows XP, Office 2003 and Exchange Server 2003 went out of support on April 8, 2014. As a result, there is no new security updates, non-security hotfixes, free or paid assisted support options, or online technical content updates.

Running Windows XP SP3, Office 2003 and Exchange 2003 in your environment after their end of support date may expose your company to potential risks.
