Outlook 2007 Accidentally Installed on Exchange 2003 Server

A tech mistakenly installed Outlook 2007 on our Windows 2003/Exchange 2003 server.  This is causing MAPI problems, especially with our Blackberry Professional Software, installed on the same machine.  We are a small company and have only one server.  I believe I need to uninstall and reinstall the BPS, but what do I need to do to fix the MAPI problem in Exchange?

Why don't you just  uninstall Outlook 2007 ?
If the MAPI still has problems, then repair your exchange installation by starting the Exchange installer again.

Uninstall Outlook, restart, reregister the mapi.dll that came with Exchange.

Fire the tech that did it! Or heavily reprimand. :)

Sorry, I forgot to mention that I did remove Outlook 2007 and restarted the server.  Blackberry tech support cautioned me that simply running a repair of Exchange has caused major Exchange problems in the past and I would really like to avoid losing Exchange.

Has Powershell sent you back into the Stone Age?

If managing Active Directory using Windows Powershell® is making you feel like you stepped back in time, you are not alone.  For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why.

Rename the \windows\system32\mapi32.dll, take the MAPI32.DLL from the Exchange server CD-ROM (from the \setup\i386\exchange\bin folder) and copy it in to the \windows\system32 folder.

Locate and then open the following folder on your computer
C:\Program Files\Common Files\System\Msmapi\1033 and see whether you have a msmapi32.dll file. If so, rename it to .old

All you need to do is uninstall Outlook 2007 and then re-register the mapi32.dll and cdo.dll in  \Program Files\Exchsrvr\bin.  After a restart it will work correctly again.
