Windows EBS 2008 (Essential Business Server)

Hello all,

 

I found an old post about BB Professional not being compatible with SBS 2008 (Or any Windows 2008 for that matter), but that was a good while ago (oct 2008). Has this change? Or is the only option for Windows 2008 is to go with the full BB Enterprise 5.0?

 

One workaround I've seen is Hyper-V + W2003 + Exchange 2007... Do I have to install Exchange 2007 on W2003 for this to work? Or can I just point BB Professional in the right direction (Messaging Server)?

 

I haven't install BB in years, so any tips are welcome.

 

Thanks

No, just the CDO1.2.1 will be enough Or can I just point BB Professional in the right direction (Messaging Server)? it all works with Active Directory, AD does the pointing not BPS.
