exchange 2010 enterprise, adding outlook 2003 support AFTER install

during install, I said I would not support outlook 2003 and lo and behold, i have one user with outlook 2003.

now, to solve my problem, I simply upgraded them to 2007, BUT, for future reference, can I add outlook 2003 support to Exchange 2010 Enterprise AFTER the install is complete?

if so, how?

in exchange 2010 there is no SG (storage Group) and i guess you are looking in the wrong place

go to EMC -> Org config -> mailbox -> database management and try there
The thing you are refering to means only if a public folder database will be created and how OAB will be distributed (web only or oublic folder and web) so it is enough to create a public folder database and enable PF distribution on AOB ( offline address book)
