Installation Issue BES Express on SBS 2011



I've got a brand new install of SBS2011 and am trying to get BES Express installed on it. Going through the setup I have gotten down to where MAPI and CDO components are required. I downloaded the ExchangeMAPI CDO 1.2.1, however when I open control panel I do not get the option for "Mail" even when I switch the view to where it would normally show up.


I have uninstalled, rebooted and reinstalled and even tried to get it working with Outlook 2010. Not having a lot of luck with it, so thought I would reach out to see if anyone has any thoughts.

you need to install CDO when logged in as BESAdmin and Outlook should not be installed
