Will MS Office Professional 2016 work with Exchnage 2007?

We are preparing to upgrade our Exchange from 2007 to 2016 and I am thinking about testing Office versions now, before the upgrade.  Will Office 2016 work with Exchange 2007

I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Stop, you should wait to install Office 2016. You won’t be able to receive mail from a current mailbox. Outlook 2016 is not compatible with Exchange 2007. You may want to contact your mailbox provider or system administrator about this issue.

There is an excellent article explaining how this will work and what you need to do to make it work

You will also run into trouble using Outlook 2016 with Exchange 2010.  If you have 2 users trying to share say a calendar, the one using Outlook 2016 can't see the Outlook 2010 user's calendar correctly.
Exchange 2007 is no longer supported and receives no security updates any more, by the way. It should be upgraded as soon as possible.
Of course, the question should have been "does outlook 2016 work with Exchange 2007" and the answer would have been "no". You may install the rest of office 2016 and you can use it, as it does not interact with exchange, just not outlook, that would need to be left at the old version (2010/2013).
