I am planning to upgrade some of my PC's in the office this means buying Office 2003. However I am not in a position to upgrade MS-Exchange Server 5.5 (SP4) as yet.

Does anyone know if there are any problems using Outlook 2003 with Exhcnage 5.5/SP4?

Thanks

There is a known issue.  Outlook 2003 adds a new entry into the PR_FREEBUSY_ENTRYIDS MAPI tag that previous versions of CDO do not understand.  The result is heap corruption in IIS if you are running 5.5 OWA.  To prevent this, simply apply the latest CDO patch:

There is also a known issue that can occur when modifying rules via OL 2003 on a 5.5 server.  The result can cause an Access Violation in store.  However, I believe you will have to contact Microsoft to get this hotfix (hotfix calls are free so don't worry about paying).  The article for this issue is:

Thank for your inputs. I will look into the FREEBUSY issue. We dont use OWA so this should not be a major issue, but its worth knowing about. The rules thing may be more of an issue.
