Hi all! I jus tried to update Outlook on one user's computer, and the exchange connection didn't work.

Some after that, I learned that O 2013 does not support Exchange 2003? WTF?

Is there any way to make those two work together?

Downgrade Outlook or upgrade Exchange - as far as I am aware there are no other fixes. You are basically trying to leap too many generations of products.

Personally I would upgrade Exchange - SBS 2003 is very old.

As Sembee says, outlook 2013 is not compatible with Exchange 2013.  There is no fix, or work around.  All Microsoft support for SBS 2003 ends April 2014. and SBS 2011 will not be available on new systems after December 31 this year

In essence, this is a good thing. I really hate Exchange and consider it a piece of junk, and now I have a reason to completely oust it from my networks.

Thanks.
