A customer got office 2013 online from microsoft, multiple hours of support later just to get it downloaded, it was realized its not compatible with sbs2003.

Upgrade server - not the answer
Different version of Office - not the answer

Apparently the online retail version has no downgrade key option.

It also has no component option, its all the package or none of the package.

What I did was install outlook 2003 from the SBS to the xp mode VM.
Copied the shortcut to the start folder

So the user has access to outlook, everything is fine and good there.

How does one tell windows 7 that the default email application is the Outlook 2003 (remote)?
