Blackberry Enterprise Server Express account setup on SBS2003

We have a user who need his owa mail and calendar on his Blackberry and as the mobile providers blackberry service is for mail only we have no choice other to install BESE on the SBS2003 server.

I have installed the software and can access the web-based control panel etc, however I found some video's online to help with the setup and I think I may have done something wrong and i am not sure if i need to go back through the setup again.

The video states that when installing on an SBS server you should create an account called "besadmin" configure that account with the settings provided and THEN logon to that account on the server and install the BES-E software.  I have not done this, I have configured it on the main admin account.  

What I would like to know is will this work or do i need to uninstall the BESE software and re-do it on a besadmin account?

Thank you so much for any assistance on this.
