The Exchange Server supportability matrix in the Microsoft TechNet documentation has now been updated to included Outlook versions and the Exchange Server version they are supported against. You can find it here.

 


Exchange Server 2007

The following Outlook client versions are fully supported by Exchange server 2007. Please bear in mind though, there’s a difference between what is supported and what might be compatible with Exchange 2007.

All of the Outlook versions listed below have been thoroughly tested by the Exchange Product group:

  • Microsoft Office Outlook 2010 RTM and later
  • Microsoft Office Outlook 2007 RTM and later
  • Microsoft Office Outlook 2003 RTM and later
  • Microsoft Office Outlook 2002

 
Note
When using Outlook 2003 or earlier to connect against an Exchange 2007 or 2010 organization, you must make sure a public folder database exist in the organization. This is because Outlook 2003 and earlier uses public folders to retrieve free/busy information and the offline address book (OAB). For more information see: Microsoft KB article:
When you use Outlook with an Exchange 2007 mailbox, you cannot connect to Exchange 2007, and you receive an error message.
