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?

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
