As Jane says, the password issue is with 2002. There is another issue with
OL 2000. We can't tell much about your issue because you didn't say which
OL you're using.
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
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
It's pronounced Alberto Gonnnnnne Zales who has purjured himself before
Congress as has the Deputy AG McNulty. The real criminals are at DOJ.
