Deploy outlook to clients from Win SBS 2003 Prem

chuck_johnson
I need to deploy Outlook client from Windows SBS 2003 Prem to workstations.
Where is the file to execute this deployment?
My understanding is that this is build into the SBS software, OR does the client need to be loaded directly onto the workstation.
My concern is licensing. Where does the client copy get the license?

The Server has the Exchange and the workstations have the Mail Client.

Outlook is part of Microsoft Office and it is registered to M$ Office as they share the same product key.

However depending on what you have it's possible that you have purchased a Volume License of Outlook separately from the Server Software and you can Load the Install File onto a Share on the Server and install from there.

However if that's the case you need to use the correct Product Key for the part of Office that you are installing. And while it is possible that you got a Volume License of Outlook it's not something that I have ever heard of being sold separately from Office in the M$ Volume License Program.

That however doesn't mean much as I'm in AU and am not sure what is available where you live from M$, there could be country differences between different countries.

Thank you for your response Col. I do not have a volume license. Although Outlook is part of MS Office, I seem to remember that it is also in SBS and can be deployed from the server to a workstation within the constraints of the number of SBS user licenses. I need to know if this is true. If it is, then where or how to deploy. If not, then I need to buy Outlook licenses elsewhere.

SBS has Exchange as part of it not Outlook.

Thanks to all.
I found the solution on another site.
Windows Small Business Server 2003 has an Outlook CD with a license number included in the media packet. I loaded the Outlook CD onto the workstation using the supplied license affixed to the CD folder and it works correctly. I can now deploy Outlook directly from the CD onto the number of workstations within my license quantity.
