    however the casual user won't find the upgrade significant enough to shell out $200 or more. Unless you're using some of the more business-oriented functionality (colaboration tools are a big :bigthumb: in the new Office) you won't see too huge of a difference.

    Outlook is a lot better IMO - no really significant changes in the rest of the programs

    i use the new office 2003. i like it better, mostly because its new.

    i don't do much with it as i am a casual user, but i got it for free so i can't complain either way!

    Couldn't agree more. Just transferred everything over from Outlook Express. Only bug I've found is that when I bring Outlook up from the system tray, it says the Outlook isn't responding, but really it is. Anybody else notice this?

    nope. Did you have office XP or any other earlier version of outlook (not express) installed previously? I've found that I have problems similar in nature when upgrading/replacing from a previous version but its fine on a fresh install.

    Yeah, Outlook 2003 is much better... The forms program looks useful, but my company already uses Informed, which sucks...

    I have only ever had problems with Outlook 2003 at work, using exchange, my service is in Philly and we are running through a VPN in VA... basically our network sucks... using pop3 at home it works flawlessly..
