    It is compatible. Outlook 2000 does require a minor copying of files.

    Use Explorer to navigate to C:\Program Files\Common Files\System
    Copy wab32.dll and wab32res.dll to C:\Windows\System32

    What about the issue with Outlook where it cannot remember passwords, or
    something like that?

    .... and heaven forbid should you actually have e-mail addresses in Outlook
    2K ... you will get an error message for _each_ one when attempting to open
    Outlook.

    Yes, it is. There are apparently a couple of relatively minor issues
    in Outlook, but none of them appears to be a show stopper.

    Outlook will give you a small issue. Otherwise everything else is fine

    Word, Excel and Access work fine. However there's one quirk that may have to
    do with Vista's file system/security. When you click a DOC file you get an
    error message saying file not found but Word does start. However if you open
    Word2000, navigate to the doc file and open it, all works fine. Maybe has to
    do with Compatibiluty folders... not user.
