    Good afternoon!

    I seem to run into this a whole lot...

    SBS2003 SP2/Exchange 2003 SP2 and I find that Outlook is installed on the
    SBS2003 box. I suggest that Outlook ought not be installed on the same box
    as Exchange and hear the usual question: why not? I suggest that different
    versions of MAPI will cause issues and hear the same thing: nothing has
    happened yet.

    How do I respond to that?

  2. Microsoft does not support it. If you choose to run Outlook on Exchange
    Server and have issues, then you will not get support for issues resulting
    from this. Now with that being said, I have many clients who run Outlook on
    Exchange Server and have no issues.

    Use OWA instead on the Exchange Server.

    I know. I know. "YET" never matters until something actually happens. I
    just can not understand (and will never understand) why people allow things
    to continue when they know that there are potential problems with the
    current setup. And that does not apply only to computers/networking. How
    many people have died at dangerous intersections (okay....what makes them
    dangerous? People in a hurry driving through red lights becasue they got up
    too late becasue they went to bed too late because they are addicted to
    playing World of Warcraft and play until 3AM!) many of those
    dangerous intersections are "well known" to the respective City Councils?
    Nobody does anything until someone dies. Then, and only then, is something
    done. Well, that does not really help the departed, now, does it?

    Sorry for my high horse. Just something that really bugs me (the whole "if
    it aint broke" mentality....well, who says it "ain't broke"?). And, I was
    almost killed - literally - at one of those "intersections". There is no
    reason for me to be alive today other than it was simply not my time to go
    on that particular afternoon.
