can't setup IMAP with ms OUTLOOK 2000, HOE CAN I DO SO WITH BUYNG UPDATES

I have about 15 systems with OUTLOOK 2000  that I want to setup with IMAP .  I t doesn't seem that this version of outlook let you use IMAP.   My company won't spend the money to upgrade so I was hoping there is a work round.  

We have useser switching site and with IMAP they can see the emails no mateer  where the loging.  we can't purchase exchange either.  Is there a way to do this?

Are you using Corporate email support, rather than Internet only?

Pull down Tools, Options, Mail Delivery, press the Reconfigure Mail Support button.  Select Internet Only option.

Greetings bsjld !

IMAP works with Outlook 2000.  Is the problem that you cannot set up IMAP?  Here is how to setup IMAP

Make sure you have all the latest updates to Outlook 2000. It is up to service pack 3 and hotfixes.

Hope this helps, war1

bsjld, you do not have IMAP option when you go to the account setup page? You could have a condition in your computer where you need SP3 to be installed for IMAP to work.  SP3 fixes many problems.

war1,
sorry for the delay, I don't have the IMAP option at all on outlook 2000.  I found the sp3 but when I attempted to install on one system I got an error saying it cannot continue for some reason.  I will get the exact message and post.  

In the meantime gonna try moorhouselondon: suggestion
