Hi
The holiday import included with Outlook 2k expires in 2002. You need to get the updated holiday download,
Useful info on the holidays:

For your shortcut problem you could try repairing outlook if your shortcut's not working properly - Click Help - Detect and Repair - you may need your office cd. If this doesn't help also try office update - Help - Office on the Web - Then try "Check for Updates" - Your Outlook may need patching,
