Update informationThis update includes changes to Outlook 2007 that were introduced in the February 2009 cumulative update. These changes include performance, calendar, security, and reliability improvements.
However, if you did not install the February 2009 cumulative update, 2007 Microsoft Office Service Pack 2, or the April 2009 cumulative update before you install the update in this article, the initial startup of Outlook may be slow. This is because Outlook must update internal data structures in .pst or .ost files that are used in performance optimizations.
