    IE does open new message in Outlook (Outlook97 98.04.5619/IE5.5.4807.2300)

    Bit of a quandary as to which thread to post this in. Hope this is the right one!

    The environment: client using Outlook97 (8.04.5619) with Internet Explorer 5.5.4807.2300 on Windows98 4.10.1998.

    The problem: Outlook and IE work fine on their own. When a Web site's link to

    It is known Outlook97 was so buggy that it became obsolete almost from the beginning. I never use it - upgrade to Outlook98 was available for free. Try to upgrade it - I hope it will help.

    Thanks, good thought.

    Any idea where I get find an upgrade for just Outlook? The download on CNET threatens to *upgrade* IE5.5 to IE4.01. <img src=/S/aflame.gif border=0 alt=aflame width=15 height=15>

    Having had the experience from another install program doing similar IE5.5 to IE5.0 I know there is a real danger of trashing the system. <img src=/S/headthrob.gif border=0 alt=headthrob width=15 height=15>

    My thanks to you both. <img src=/S/bow.gif border=0 alt=bow width=15 height=15>

    Have decided to abandon the 90's and install Outlook2000, just found out our corporate license covers us for the upgrade. (mind you, that info had to come from a third party.) <img src=/S/igiveup.gif border=0 alt=igiveup width=31 height=23>
