Microsoft has released an update to Microsoft Office Outlook 2003 with Business Contact Manager. This update allows Microsoft Office Outlook 2003 users to configure a Microsoft Exchange Server service in their mail profile, as long as the Exchange Server is a Microsoft Windows Small Business Server 2003-based computer. Previously, this was not a supported configuration.
This article describes how to download and install the Business Contact Manager for Outlook 2003 Update: Windows Small Business Server 2003.
How to download and install the update
Important Before you install this update, consider the following important notes:
This update requires you to install Microsoft Office Outlook 2003 on the client by using the Set Up Client Computers Wizard in Microsoft Windows Small Business Server 2003. For more information, see the "How to configure the Set Up Client Computers Wizard" section.
This update requires your Microsoft Office Outlook 2003 profile to be configured to use Cached Exchange Mode. If Cached Exchange Mode is not turned on (enabled), Business Contact Manager does not load. For more information about how to turn on Cached Exchange Mode, see the "How to enable Cached Exchange Mode for your Outlook 2003 profile" section. By default, Cached Exchange Mode is turned on when you configure an Exchange Server service in your Outlook 2003 profile.
This update does not work with stand-alone Exchange Server installations. This update works only with an Exchange Server that is running on a Small Business Server 2003-based computer. We do not support the use of this update with stand-alone Exchange Server installations or with earlier versions of Microsoft Windows Small Business Server.

Business Contact Manager is designed for small businesses that are made up of 25 or fewer users who primarily use Internet service providers (ISPs) e-mail accounts, Post Office Protocol (POP) e-mail accounts, and HTTP-based e-mail accounts. We recommend that businesses with sophisticated requirements, like multi-user and contact sharing, consider Microsoft Exchange Server as a collaborative communications server. We also recommend that these businesses use Microsoft Business Solutions CRM for lead management, opportunity management, and incident management, with a searchable knowledge base and reporting tools.
