    Update new install (10.2627.2625)

    I have just made a fresh from the box install of Office XP. I read WOW and recall warnings about some of the upgrades posted by Microsoft. I would like to know whether I should upgrade with SP-1, SP-2, and SP-3? Outline 2002 was identified, I believe as having an upgrade that severely restricted receipt and sending of attachments. Is this still a problem and should I avoid one or more updates?

    I think Office XP (unlike 2000) came with the Outlook security hassles built-in, and installing the security and bug-fix updates won't worsen the situation. (I'm not sure about the most recent SP...might way to delay that one a bit.) Once you get to first base with a complete install, you can read up on the work-arounds for attachments, and so forth. Make sense?

    Woody RECOMMENDS to instal SP-3 for Office XP as well as for Office 2000.
    If you use Outlook, don't forget to download a new version of Ken Slovak's ATTOPT utility from http://www.slovaktech.com/attachmentoptions.htm

    Methinks I'll wait for Peter Deegan's write-up in a future issue of WOW... <img src=/S/wink.gif border=0 alt=wink width=15 height=15>

    Yeah, and didn't I read somewhere in the Lounge that there is dissension in the ranks about agreeing with Woody on installing the Office 2000 SP-3? Maybe next week he will have more or different information. I know I'm waiting.

    I installed it with no known problems, but I don't use Outlook for email. Just today, Woody took back his recommendation. Oh, well.....

    Yeah, I saw that too. Hope he keeps on MS until they fix it.
