    Outlook 2000 (1)

    I have been using Outlook Express 6, but want to play around with Outlook 2000 (which I already have but have never used).

    Although I have SR1 (not installed yet), What patches do I need to install to be safe if I decide to use Outlook 2000 as my primary e-mail client.

    Any help much appreciated. i'm a bit new at this sort of thing.


    Cheers

    I am not sure if this is sound advice, in regards to the recent W32.Blaster.Worm virus outbreak, but the best way to keep your PC healthy and up to date is by visiting the Windows Update and the Office Update sites.

    I am running Outlook 2000 and its version number is 9.0.0.3821

    Re: Outlook 2000 (1)

    SP-2 and some related mail patches added a bunch of security features; you can get the details at Slipstick. Some of these are quite annoying, but nevertheless, if you believe in "better safe than sorry," it might be worthwhile to you.

    Separately, it is critical that under Tools>Options>Security you assign Outlook to the Restricted Zone, and ensure that Active Scripting and ActiveX are disabled in that zone. This controls how HTML message bodies are rendered, and is independent of attachment security, which generally would be handled by your antivirus software.

    Hope this helps.
