  • Outlook2003 not able to use Word2000 as it's default editor

    We have an Exchange 2003 server with outlook 2003 installed on all the PC's. We also have office 2000 on all the PCs. Some of my users want to use Word as their default Outlook editor. . The option in Outlook 2003 shows up as "Use Office 2003 to edit e-mail messages". Since we are running Office 2000, the option is greyed out. Since we are not upgrading Office to 2003, does anyone know of any way to get over this?

    This isn't possible, the versions must match (Word XP, Outlook XP, etc). The only option that you'd have would be to downgrade to a lesser version of Outlook for the users that want to use Word as their email editor.

    In my opinion, Word takes too much memory and the process (winword.exe) stays memory resident until you close Outlook. Tell your users to suck it up and use the built-in editor .
