It will PROBABLY be OK if you do this:

1) Stop all Exchange Services

2) Set the "startup type" of system attendent to "disabled"

3) Reboot [ensures that everything related to exchange is out of memory]

4) Remove Outlook

5) Reboot [ensures that everything related to outlook is out of memory]

6) Set the "startup type" of system attendent to "automatic"

7) Apply sp1 plus the rollup [installs a new set of dll's]

8) Reboot 

This process generally works for me.

Subject: [exchangelist] Outlook on Exchange

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?
