Install Symantec Endpoint on Exchange 2007 Server?

I'm wondering if I should install Symantec Endpoint Protection on our Exchange 2007 servers.  According to Symantec, Endpoint Client will automatically exclude exceptions for the Exchange 2007 mail store.  But what if the server is all a hub transport and CAS?

I'm not sure I trust Symantec Endpoint in creating proper exclusions.  What do you experts recommend/think?

There are no issues with installing it on a server with any or all of the roles on.
Just make sure you download the very latest version of Symantec.

I have seen it cause problems with delivery but these are normally resolved by removing and re-installing.

Yes you can for sure install SEP on exchange server. And it definitly creates proper exclusions.
