When I elected to upgrade the Microsoft Outlook Connector on my Professional 2003…after downloading, I get the message”We were unable to upgarde your computer with the latest version of Outlook Connector…If this persists, contact support” This only works if you are willing to pay them a ridiculously expensive fee for their screw-up! Then they tell you that you will not receive any mail through Outlook — Microft SUX!
