Enabling Outlook Anywhere for Exchange 2007


I have to do an Office 365 cutover migration from a SBS 2008 server running Exchange 2007. I've noticed that Outlook Anywhere is not enabled but is a requiement for the cutover migration.

Weirdly, the server has an SSL certificate for OWA but my question is whether enabling Outlook Anywhere will have any effect on the current users and their Outlook profiles ie. if i enable it, will they start getting pop ups or will we need to reconfigure their profiles?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
