MS Exchange Client for Win95 or MS Exchange Client for NT for Win2k Pro

My computer uses Windows 2000 Professional. I would like to use the Exchange client. I do not have Exchange client 2000. I only have Exchange client 95 and Exchange client NT. Which version is the most suitable to use? Currently, my server is Microsoft Windows NT 4.0 Server and my Exchange Server is Exchange 5.5 Server. My question is should I use MS Exchange Client for Windows 95 or MS Exchange Client for Windows NT? There is only one reason why I would prefer to use MS Exchange client rather than Outlook. There are public folders which can display in the MS Exchange Client but cannot display in Outlook.
There really is no Exchange client for Windows 2000. The preferred client for Exchange server remains Outlook and, in particular, Outlook 2000. If you are running Exchange Server, any public folder that can be displayed in one of the older Exchange 5.x clients can be displayed in Outlook 2000. My recommendation is to use Outlook 2000. It's a great client for Exchange 2000 and offers a lot of improvements over the Exchange 5.x client.
