      Outlook : express works fine 2002 doesn't

      Any ideas on what is going wrong.

      Same settings loaded in to both email clients. Outlook express works but 2002 givea time out of the SMTP server due to email address not being verified.

      Nothing coming up on windows update as being required

      Confused

      Have you checked office update? Windows update is not the same as microsoft update and will only give you updates for the operating system I think.
      http://office.microsoft.com/officeupdate
      Also are you using the correct settings and using your sky.com email as your user name and the sky.com password in Outlook?

      You are running XP I assume? As running Office 2002 on Vista has some spectacular issues.

      I must admit since the final servce pack for Office 2002 I am very disappointed with the overall stability and performance of outlook and I am considering moving back to outlook express myself.

      The problem is that Office 2002 is now no longer fully supported by Microsoft only security patches will be released and them infrequently I assume and I would expect that to be removed by the end of the year.

      My wife was bought a copy of Office 2007 for Xmas and I just can't get my head round it, it has a whole new look and a lot of things have been moved around etc but she is happy as outlook seems to work properly for once but I will try and hang onto 2002 for as long as I can.

      Outlook 2007 is vastly superior to 2003 so it's worth getting your head round it - although the rest of Office is a bit weird at first!!
