If cc:Mail, Microsoft Mail, NetFolders, Microsoft Fax or Winfax Starter Edition (SE) services are present during the installation of Microsoft Outlook, you are presented with a choice to either remove the services while you install Outlook or Microsoft Outlook is disabled in the Microsoft Office XP installation.
