Caveats with Outlook 2003/2000

People who already have Outlook 97/98/2000 installed in Internet Only mode for use with an IMAP4 email account should not install Outlook 2000 or 2003.

People who use Outlook 97/98/2000/2003 with another Exchange email system other than UMKC's will need to contact their email systems provider to find out if setting up an additional Outlook profile will cause you problems.

If you currently have Outlook 97/98/2000 installed without using the email portion, and just for PIM (Calendaring and personal information storage) purposes, be sure to backup your existing Outlook .PST file before installing Outlook 2000 or 2003. (A .PST is a file that Outlook uses for storing your information). Once Outlook 2000/2003 is installed, you can add your .PST back into your new UMKC email profile in Outlook.
