Exchange 2000 supports deployments that distribute server tasks among front-end and back-end servers. A front-end server receives requests from clients, and then proxies the requests to the appropriate back-end server for processing. This Exchange Online Book explains how Exchange 2000 supports front-end and back-end server architecture, with an emphasis on HTTP for Microsoft Outlook Web Access (OWA). This book also describes several front-end and back-end scenarios and provides configuration recommendations.
Important Most of the information in this book pertains to Exchange 2000 Service Pack 2 (SP2) or later. If you are running Exchange 2000 SP1 or earlier, upgrade to Exchange 2000 SP2 to take full advantage of the features described in this book.
