In this installation, assume that this is the first Exchange 2000 Server in your organization.

For a basic installation, you are required to install the Exchange Messaging and Collaboration and Exchange System Management Tools. But in this installation, we are going to add the chat service and the instant messaging service. Nodes terms will appear in this article as nodes of the component set.

The following are brief definitions of some component functionalities:
