installing Windows Server SP2 onto SBS 2003 SP1

I have SBS 2003 SP1.  I have been keeping up with all the windows updates for 
this machine and would like to update the machine to SP2.  

I had heard that if you try to update the SBS 2003 SP1 server to SP2, you 
need to unload a lot of the updates issued after the SP2 was submitted.  Is 
this true?

Hi Carl,

This hasn't been my experience.  And there is no SBS 2003 SP2.  It's Windows 
2003 SP2 installed on top of SBS 2003 SP1 (which already has Win2003 SP1 

Run the SBS 2003 BPA prior to the install of Win2003 SP2 to make sure you 
don't have an issues with the existing server.  Then install Win2003 SP2. 
Then run SBS 2003 BPA again and perform any recommendation it makes or clean 
up any problems it finds.

Outlook 2003 "Reply to All" not functioning
I have a particular end-user (User 1) who is receiving e-mails from another end-user (User 2) within the same Exchange 2003 domain.

Outlook 2003
More than 50% of my contacts do not have email addresses, so it therefore clutters the Address book unnecessarily. Is there anyway to allow the address book (the popup which appears when clicking on "To:") to only show contacts that have email addresses? I can use categories to assign contacts as ValidEmailUser, but I can't seem to find a way to force the address book popup form, to show based on a category. Thanks. That's odd. I have never seen the Outlook Address Book display Contacts without electronic addresses. It simply won't do that. Do these Contacts ...

website configuration on SBS
I've read the posts on issues with CRM & the default website in SBS 2003. I could use some input on how best to set up my server: Criteria * Clean install of SBS2003 & CRM. * CRM not in default web-site. * Single public IP address.

Outlook Rules not working with new Exchange Server
We recently (last week) upgraded our Exchange 5.5 server with a new machine running Exchange 2003. Since that change, a few clients who use Outlook Rules to forward messages to other email addresses have noticed that those messages are no longer being delivered. We have clients using Outlook 2000 and some using 2003 - it doesn't seem to matter which version of Outlook that's being used. The rules work just fine for placing specific messages into specific folders, but anytime that a message is supposed to be forwarded to an outside email address, it is never delivered. Any ide...
