install outlook 2007 on SBS2003

I have a client who wants me to install outlook 2007 on their SBS2003R2 because they use dumb terminals everyone is basically logged into the server, I have told them that I always thought that you shouldnt put outlook on a machine with exchange..

My question is if I do install outlook 2007 on SBS2003R2 what affect would it have on the server if any?

SBS does not support running Terminal Server in application mode, so thier architecture in invalid to begin with!  At most you could only have two administrators running TS sessions simultaniously.  Best option here IMHO is to get a second low-end server to run as a TS box.

Hello aarondarr,

point one, you DONT install outlook on an exchange server
point two: you don't use SBS as a tsserver, bacause it's in ts admin mode and NOT in application mode.
What kind of computers are they using?
The only other way is to install a SEPERATE tsserver next to the SBS server.
