We have a client running SBS 2008. After the initial installation, the client decided that they didn't want to use the Exchange element of the server and would rather have Outlook sending/reviewing directly via POP/SMTP as per the previous configuration (although I'm going to suggest moving to IMAP)
We carried out the clients wishes but unfortunately, the Exchange accounts keep re-appearing, causing all sorts of problems.
We were also asked to completely remove Exchange from the server - which would solve this problem - but we cannot do this as it will prevent us from installing future services packs (https://www.experts-exchange.com/OS/Microsoft_Operating_Systems/Server/SBS_Small_Business_Server/Q_21792107.html
Does anyone know of a way of preventing this behavior from either the server end or the Outlook side?
Thanks in advance for your help!
