Microsoft Entourage 2008 Web Services Edition - MacUpdate

Note: Microsoft Exchange 2010 requires Entourage 2008 Web Services Edition for full Exchange functionality. Entourage 2008 Web Services Edition is a free add-on to Entourage 2008 provided by Microsoft. You can find more information at the following link:

The set up of DU Exchange with Entourage 2008 Web Services edition is now complete.

I have a user who is using Office 2008 home and student. I need to move their email to an exchange hosting solution (exchange 2007). By default, I think I need to uninstall their office 2008 home and student, purchase office 2008 professional and install this in order to get entourage to work.

I see that Microsoft has a free download for Entourage 2008 Web Services Edition which says it works with exchange 2007-2010. I haven't tried it yet, but can I download this and install over the top of the Office 2008 home and student? I assume not, but wanted to see if anyone ran across this yet.

I also have a full copy of entourage 2008, but already tried to install this over the top of office 2008 home and student and it wouldn't work.
