I decided to implement exchange 2000 in our organization because of the following reason:
1. Formaly I was running exchange 5.5 in WinNT 4.0 platform hence it was easier for me to migrate to the later version
2. My organisation was in need of Document management system which would also have the workflow system, on analysing exchange 2000at its release, I found out that it had all these bundles therefore I was going to make a saving by going for it as opposed to other Document management systms like Laserfiche.
3. The othet element was security of of the mailing system and the encription level

I've been on both sides of the fence. I've worked in environments that used MS Exchange and environments that have used Lotus Notes and and I have to say that MS Exchange will never come up the collaborative superiority of the Notes system.

Every feature of Lotus Notes just adds to the collaboration abilities of Notes and when combined with some of the new companion products like Sametime, QuickPlace and the upcoming K-Station it simply blows the competition out of the water.

After seeing how easy it is to setup and configure a large implementation of Lotus Notes I will never recommend MS Exchange to anybody every again. It is easy to use, easy to configure, and easy to develope new applications in it.

I think the main reason that Lotus notes is better for collaboration is that it is not built around a e-mail system. E-Mail in Lotus Notes is just a small component. In Exchange everything is based on the E-Mail components.

So MY opinion... Lotus Notes is and always will be the best collaboration software available.
