Using Outlook 2003 with Office XP

By fergynm ·
Is Outlook 2003 compatible for use with Office XP? I'm running Windows 2003 server and Exchange 2003, but my desktops are all running Office XP (Outlook 2002). Is Outlook 2003 even available without buying Office 2003?

Yes, Outlook 2003 will run under previous versions of Office but you will not be able to use Word as your default editor. Naturally, mixed Office configurations bring a new set of "issues", as well. If possible, upgrading the entire Office suite is preferred.

Double check your MS licensing, but an Outlook 2003 license is typically included with Exchange 2003 CAL licenses.
