Are there any issues between Vista Home Prem and Office 2003? For example,
attaching a file in Outlook 2003, it seems to be working so long to attach,
sometimes it even hangs the program? Also the attachment dialogue box of
files seem to be "corrupted" etc . . .

Re: Are there issues between Vista and Office 2003?
Hi Dino--

I have had no problem at all using Office 2003 on Vista beta builds, until
I could get my hands on the Office 07 Beta and now I use Office 2007 and it
works great.

There has been one widely reported issue with Outlook 2000 though, but I'm
not aware of any particular problems with Outlook 2003. I haven't had any
problems with Outlook 2007 or Outlook 2003 on Vista.

Diane Poremsky has summed the situation up this way on Slipstick:

Outlook and Vista
Which versions of Outlook work with Vista?

Outlook 2007, naturally, along with Outlook 2003.

Outlook 2002 works fine but email account passwords are not saved. This is
because Outlook stores passwords in protected storage interface and Vista
does not support it.

Outlook 2000 in Internet only mode (IMO) loads but the address book does not
work - it needs the Windows Address Book files (wab.dll), which is not found
in Vista. Corporate mode seems to work fine in my limited tests, once you
get past the Outlook Start Up screen and verify it should be the default
mail client. (This dialog comes up every time I restart Outlook.) Either
switch to Corporate mode or upgrade to Outlook 2007. Vista's Mail and
Calendar applications are viable alternatives to Outlook for many home
users.

Outlook 98 IMO will not work correctly due to the missing wab.dll. I haven't
yet tested Outlook 98 Corp or Outlook 97 with Vista, but frankly, if you are
still using either version you need to either upgrade to Outlook 2007 or
switch to Vista's Mail and Calendar applications. Both have security issues
and need to be retired.

Don't look for Microsoft to release patches to fix any issues that may come
up with Outlook2002 and older, as they are all well past their mainstream
support lifecycle


I am not encoutering any issues reported here.

I think you will find the info here on Slipstick (scroll down) helpful for
Outlook and Vista and the issues some are encountering:

Good luck and if you do have any specific issues holler up. The MSFT
Outlook newsgroups are full of fantastic experts who are very quick to
answer questions and very good at it as well.

Wave Buh buh to **Gonnnnne Zales who has violated federal law by lying to
Congress. It is a violation of law to lie to Congress whether you are under
oath or not and Alberto has gone (zales) both ways. Justice Brandeis once
said:
"Sending a yokel like Gonzales with no federal litigation experience from
Austin Texas to be AG is like asking Anna Nicole to fix a ruptured
aneurysm." The dude has the worst of both worlds--he's a congenital liar
and a shill for moron Bush whose coat tails he rode from a trailer and he's
in way over his head.

What if Alberto Gonzales and Harriet Miers had been confirmed to the Supreme
Court? Ans. It would have made a great Broadway Musical.
