Downgrading SBS 2008 to SBS 2003 to get Outlook license
Posted on 2008-11-15
I am installing a new server for 40 users and the budget is tight. They want to go with SBS 2003 because it has Outlook license....problem is we can't find the CALs for sbs 2003 anywhere. So, we are thinking of buying the 2008 and downgrading to 2003. My question is will we (officially) get the Outlook license that generally comes with 2003? Even though 2008 has no Outlook license.
