During recently completed installation of SBS 2003 workstation accounts were mistakenly configured to install Outlook 2003. The plan is to let Outlook pop mail accounts directly. Exchange was not installed on Server. Now when attempting to configure Office 2007 on workstations they are looking for Exchange. The configuration wizard exits when this fails. Is there a registry edit which will allow Outlook to install without Exchange?
I posted this same question earlier today and awarded points thinking I had been given a solution using mail in Control panel. Unfortunately the problem isn't solved I was able to complete the configuration but now Exchange is one of the accounts and I can't remove it after demoting it from default. There is no data to save having never opened it. Several errors are generated about not being able to connect to an exchange server each time I open Outlook or when I try to send/receive.
