If I upgrade from 10.5.8 to snow leopard, can I use my existing Mail to access Exchange Server?

I have 10.5.8

I want to use my Mail application to access work email on Exchange Server 2007.

If I upgrade to Snow Leopard is that enough or will I also be asked to updgrade Ilife.

My Mail application is version 3.6.

ICal version 3.0.8

    Mail is not part of iLife, so upgrading to Snow Leopard 10.6.x will upgrade Mail to version 4.x and this is enough to use Mail with Exchange Server 2007. iCal will update as well (to version 4.0.x). You will likely have to re-enter your exchange settings in Mail & iCal to get all of the Exchange Server 2007 features, but it will work (I've done it for myself and others at my work).

    Hope this helps, good luck.
