Summary

Microsoft has released an update to Outlook 2000. This update fixes an issue with Outlook 2000 in Internet Mail Only (IMO) mode after the Microsoft Office 2000 Service Pack 3 (SP-3) is installed, in which Outlook 2000 reminders may not behave as expected or they may use 100 percent of the CPU when they appear. This Outlook 2000 update is part of Microsoft's continued effort to provide the latest product updates to customers.

This article describes how to download and install the Microsoft Outlook 2000 Update: December 18, 2002.

    -or-
  • Install only the Outlook 2000 Update: December 18, 2002, by following the steps described later in this article.
NOTE: Microsoft recommends that you install the client update by using the Office Product Updates Web site. The Office Product Updates Web site detects your particular installation of Microsoft Office and prompts you to install exactly what you must have to make sure that your Office installation is completely up-to-date.
