Why would you want to put Outlook on a Domain Controller? Outlook is client software and you should not be using your DC as a client!

There is no reason why you cant install Outlook 2007 on your workstations - it will work fine with Exchange 2003.

Basically,
I need to use the outlook function for another application to work - sent mail using the mail profile that outlook creates etc..

Normally I would not put outlook on a DC - but I have no choice for now..

Do you know if will cause any issues?

Are your corporate email signatures appalling?

Is it scary how unprofessional your email signatures look? Do users create their own terrible designs and give themselves stupid job titles? You can make this a lot easier for yourself by choosing an email signature management solution from Exclaimer today.

Not only is it not supported, I can definitely verify that it *will* break Exchange, sharepoint integration, and fax integration on SBS 2003.
With OWA, there is no reason to have Outlook on a server.

CDO is part of SBS - fix was to give permissions to the mailboxes - used the Blackberry set up for BESADMIN to allow the user that needed access

So the answer is - use MAPI and give apropiate permissions to the mailboxes

Thanks guys
