PS:  a small correction to my last post:  when I said "IE7 is not an option" I really meant to say "MSIE is not optional", apologies if this caused any confusion, since the two phrases are practically opposite in meaning!
Anyway I would appreciate any feedback from anyone who has upgraded to IE7 on their Ex2k3 servers yet.

Seriously though, have you never had the need to run a Windows update on the Exchange server, or search the Microsoft support site etc for an article or download a patch or code from a known trusted site?  A web browser is an indensible tool when used properly.
To my knowledge, Microsoft IE is not an option if you want to run Windows updates, MS Baseline Security Analyzer etc., hence my question.  My question (and concern) is: does IE7 do anything unexpectedly funky, being tightly interwoven as it is with the OS. (BTW Firefox or the "other browsers" are not that much safer, all of them have security exposures when improperly used).

Has anyone updated their IE to v7 on their Exchange 2003 serves yet?  Any comments on doing that or not doing that?
