IIS roles needed for Exchange 2007

Ive just installed Exchange 2007 on a windows server 2003 machine.  Before installing Exchange I installed IIS using add/remove programs.  Ive now read I should have installed IIS using server manager and selected these roles:

ISAPI extensions
Basic Authentication
Windows Authentication
Digest Authentication
Dynamic Content Compression
IIS 6 Metabase Compatibility
IIS 6 Management Console

How can I check if these roles have been installed?  Do I need them?  Can I add them after installing exchange or should I reinstall IIS then Exchange.  The server hasn't gone live and no-one is using it.

Thanks, Peter.

If you go to add/remove programs, then go to "add windows components" it should tell you which IIS-related items have already been installed.

The items you listed above look more like things that might be mentioned when you're installing Exchange 2007 onto a server running Windows 2008 though.

Yes, that IS Server 2008 II6 compatibility, ect.
For server 2003, in add/remove programs/components choose iis but NOT smtp or NNTP
Simplify Active Directory Administration

Administration of Active Directory does not have to be hard.  Too often what should be a simple task is made more difficult than it needs to be.The solution?  Hyena from SystemTools Software.  With ease-of-use as well as powerful importing and bulk updating capabilities.

Hi Acox65807,
Yes that's exactly what I did, do you think these roles were installed OK and I don't need to do anything.

Alan CoxSr. Systems EngineerCommented:
So it is 2008 server and NOT 2003?
Alan CoxSr. Systems EngineerCommented:
I have installed exchange 2007 on about 5 2008 servers and I use that link and simply copy and paste the lines in the command line. works fine.

No sorry it's server 2003.  Add/remove programs gives you different options, not the roles listed in my workbook.
Alan CoxSr. Systems EngineerCommented:
add/remove COMPONENTS, IIS
