Outlook e-mail problem

Our Outlook 97 can't handle some email that we receive and we end up
with pages full of blue links. I think the problem is that Outlook 97
cannot handle HTML. Is there a version of Outlook that we could upgrade to
without replacing our Office product or our OS?

Since our PC's use mostly Win95 or NT4, what can we do about our version of Outlook
that came with Office 97?

Outlook 2000 certainly handles HTML E-mail properly, and I think you can get it without having to purchase the whole Office 2000 suite. (I think Outlook 98 possibly handled HTML E-mails as well, but we went straight from 97 to 2000 so I can't be sure).

You will still have to purchase Outlook2000 by itself.  The cost is about $100 or so for this alone.  You need to do some more testing to verify that as the problem.  Have you done an Add/Remove, Eraser97, and reinstall?

Outlook 98 definitely supports HTML, but I don't think your going to find it or Outlook 2000 in stores.  Outlook 2002 (part of Office XP) is the current version.

outlook 97 was alwasy horrible, thus the reason for evening having an Outlook 98 when there was no Office98.
