    Thanks Grey,

    Is there a security issue if messenger is enabled on the clients? Because by
    default it is disabled on XP.

    Hi Gerko

    They only security issue that I know of with the messenger service is that
    it used to send msg's from the internet, hence I think it's been disbaled by
    default with XP SP2.

    It should be ok to run it behind SBS 2003 as grey has pointed out.
