Pre-requisites for BES Express 5.0 -CDO 1.2.1

It's my first time to install BES Express 5.0 and I was wondering about something when I read the install guide.


1. We will be hosting BES Express 5.0 on the same computer where the Small Business Server 2008 and Exchange 2007 is installed, do I still need to install the Microsoft Exchange Server MAPI Client and CDO 1.2.1 components on this server as a pre-requisite? 


2. I also noticed that an MS SQL 2005 Express SP3 is incorporated in the BES Express 5.0 installer, will this SQL installation automatically create a named instance similar to if you did it manually?

1 yes

2 yes if no version of SQL is installed. If SQL is present you have to make sure BESAdmin has proper roles to create a database or make one manually with proper roles.
