Outlook 2003 supports Exchange, SMTP, and POP3. Outlook 2002 and Outlook 2003 use a unified configuration. Outlook 2002 and Outlook 2003 do not provide separate configuration options for Corporate or Workgroup installation and for Internet Mail Only installation. Additionally, Outlook 2003 includes some security features to help protect against e-mail worms. These security features first appeared in the Outlook 2000 security update.
We do not recommend that you use Outlook 2002 or Outlook 2003 together with SQL Mail and with Internet mail servers that use SMTP or POP3.
Note We do not recommend the following procedure. You can use this procedure if you must send and receive e-mail messages in SQL Mail through an Internet mail server by using Outlook 2003.
To send and receive e-mail messages in SQL Mail through an Internet mail server by using Outlook 2003, follow these steps:
- Start Outlook 2003 on the computer that is running SQL Server.
- In SQL Server, start a SQL Mail mail session.
If you start a SQL Mail mail session before you start Outlook 2003, you cannot start Outlook 2003, and you receive the following error message:
If you start Outlook 2003 before you start a SQL Mail mail session, you will not receive an error message, even if Outlook 2003 is open in the notification area.
If you cannot keep Outlook 2003 running, use one of the following methods to send and receive e-mail messages:
- Use a computer that is running Exchange instead of using an Internet mail server. You do not have to start Outlook 2003 to send and receive e-mail messages through a computer that is running Exchange.
- Use Microsoft Outlook 2000 Service Pack 3 (SP3). Because the MAPI spooler runs out of process in Outlook 2000 SP3, you do not have to start Outlook 2000 to send and receive e-mail messages through SQL Mail in SQL Server.
