Morning all, I've read lately how "unwise" it is to have Outlook installed on the exchange servers. I had been using it that way for a couple of years but I bow to the wisdom of the true experts in this field. But one thing I haven't found the answer to. If I simply uninstall Office (2003) from the server, (win2003/Exchange2003/domain2003), will Exchange replace the files Office had overwritten? I'm not sure what all but it has to do with MAPI and the different version Outlook uses vs. Exchange. Anyhow, I guess the real question is, Can I safely uninstall Office? Or will I have to replace files from Exchange afterwards?
