Software installation seems to have caused a lot of problems with other programs. Our IT guy installed MS SQL Server 2005 on our version of MS Windows Small Business Server 2003. Now our email acts quirky, some email shows up late (1-3 months later) some software tries to reinstall itself when you try to run it. Our spam software (SpamBully) goes nuts and totally unlaods itself on some machines, ask to be registered multilpe times, does not retain the learning of email addresses for one day to the next.

We have been told that we need to upgrade our server to MS Windows Server 2005. My boss says that this sould not be happening. I also have been told that SQL 2005 should never have been loaded on our MS SB 2003.

Can anyone help before I lose it?
