Does anyone have the MS patch (and are they allowed to forward it to me) to allow OWA from a Vista client to Exchange 2000. I have been trying to find the patch on Microsoft's Technet

I have one Exchange 2000 Server that we do not wish to update for another 12 months for other legacy reasons. A couple of the clients wish to use OWA to that server, from Vista but get the box with the red cross.  I have searched for a patch however it appears the only way is to call MS but as I am as far away from MS base in eastern USA and the time zones etc for phone calls etc - it makes it difficult to achieve.  So I was wondering if anyone has the patch available.  Please do not suggest the existing URLs to MS Patch unless that URL actually has the patch available for a download.
Thanks in anticipation!

    Is this what you're looking for?

    The download is just above the file list.

    Ah!  You're right.  Exchange 2000 information is further down the page.  It says to contact support.  You should call or email MS - the hotfix should be free.  Click the link under "Get Help Now" (upper right of the link I sent previously).  It's usually pretty painless.
