Exchange 2007 On SBS 2008

HI I am running Service pack 1 with Roll-up 10 update on Exchange 2007
I see that Service pack 3 is out- My Exchange is working great. Do I really need to run this update?
The last one shut down Exchange after the Roll-up update.
The Exchange Best Practices Analyzer  is not saying to go to the next Service pack.
If I do need to update should I run SP2 first?

Should you. Wow that is really up to you. I would look at the download page and read over it might help you to make a choice.

You do not need to go to SP2 before SP3

Yea, I did- I don't see any major security issues but how come the Exchange analyzer didn't mention it?

I do not have an answer to that.

But just in case have you also looked at SP2?

If you do reside to install just install SP3 not SP2. SP2 on SBS you needed a separate installer for SBS.
