We're planning on upgrading to SP1 for our Exchange 2007 SP1 server this weekend.
Our current version of BPS is the latest, I believe, at 188.8.131.52, Service Pack 4A. I realize there is a 4B as well, and will upgrade to that if need be.
Dumb question, though: Can I just download the entire ~ 311MB service pack file and run that on top of the existing BPS server, and it'll upgrade it?
Anyways, my main question is this: Post SP1 install on Exchange 2007, is there anything I'll need to do on the BPS side of things?
Thanks for any information, and I can clarify any points.

4.1.3 or > is supported with Exchange 2007 (and SP1)
Make sure you're using the latest version of the MAPI / CDO components on the BES. BPS 4.1.4B I think only adds language support; no real value in it for you. ... but yes, you download the big upgrade file and run that to upgrade if you want.

Interesting, did not know they had released a new version of the MAPI controls. Thanks for pointing that out.
I assume the newer version of the Exchange MAPI controls can just be installed over the existing MAPI controls I have on the BES now?

Depends what you currently have installed.
If you have Exchange 2003 ESM installed you'll want to remove that and replace with this.
