    Critical Update (IE 5.5)

    This new patch for IE 5.5 and 6.0, labeled q313675, has me confused. Everyone says that this is a must have patch but when I get on the MS download sight for the patch, it says that it's for IE 5.5 SP-2. I have IE 5.5 SP-1 only. Will this patch work for me or do I need to update to SP-2 first.

    I am not for sure, but I believe that I remember seeing that this takes care of everything up to this point.

    Just went thro the whole process. First I had to D/L and install IE5Setup.exe in order to D/L and install SP2 and then finally was able to install the Q313675 patch. A very long and frustrating process as I have found most of M/S D/Ls to be. It also dumps Outlook Express back into your system which I promptly remove. Use Netscape mail only for fewer virus hits.

    With the more recent versions of Netscape/Mozilla, Outlook Express can be a useful bridge for dealing with mail migration issues between Netscape/Mozilla and Outlook. Netscape/Mozilla and Outlook will each recognise mail once it's inside Outlook Express. They won't necessarily perform direct imports from each other.
