Slightly off the original topic; one thing to watch with Outlook
(2000, maybe later versions also). There are 2 ways to install it. I
don't remember the exact terminology, but one way gives you an
internet-only version (very similar to OE), the other gives you the
full, corporate Outlook package. The former has fewer automation
interfaces available than the latter so be careful when you write code
to automate it; may not work for everyone!
