Outlook Express Year 2000 Update

A problem exists in Outlook Express 5 for Win16 in handling IMAP mail boxes and News Groups. Under certain conditions when a 2 digit year is used (e.g. 97 for 1997) Outlook Express may interpret this incorrectly displaying the year 2097. For technical information on this issue see MSKB Q237824.

Download the Outlook Express Year 2000 Update
