Installing BES 4.1. Tried to install MAPI Client. Brought down our exchange environment!

hi guys,

I'm installing BES 4.1. I'm at a stage during the installation where the BES is showing the screenshot provided.

I thought I needed to install the Exchange System Manager. However, I went ahead and installed the Microsoft Exchange Server MAPI Client and Collaboration Data Objects 1.2.1. After I did that, people called up saying that they were unable to log onto Outlook. I looked in the event viewer of our the live environment (running Exchange 2000) and it said:

The MAPI call 'OpenMsgStore' failed with the following error:
The attempt to log on to the Microsoft Exchange Server computer has failed.

So I uninstalled the MAPI from the BES server and restarted the services on the Exchange server and things began working again.

What gives?! Is it because I needed to install the System Manager instead of the MAPI Client? How can I install this BES 4.1 and silly screenshot it gives me without causing disruption like that again?

thanks guys

Exchange 2000? Pretty old now. Also you should install BES on different server not on Exchange server.

I know, we're migrating these guys onto 2010 in weeks to come.

BES is on its own server. No Exchange on there, which is why I want to install the system manager. When I installed the MAPI client on the BES, it affected the Exchange environment on another server.
