    I have been wondering if there is enough difference between Outlook 2000 and Outlook 2003 to make it worth upgrading?

    I have used both. Biggest differences for me were that 2003 includes a spam filter and has the option to not show embedded graphics in HTML formatted e-mails. I also believe that 2003 gives you more options for opening certain types of e-mail attachments that may pose security risks. It has been a while since I used 2000 but I kind of recall the latest patches in 2000 forced you to save most attachments to the hard drive and then open them.

    Hi dmullen

    I agree with cwwozniak's statements.
    I like the Don't download pictures or other content automatically in HTML e-mail.
    It is a simple click on the alert bar in the message to download the pictures if desired.

    I am moving this thread to the Business Applications Forum where hopefully, you will receive additional comments.

    2003 "MAKES" you activate it after 50 uses. I don't care much for being force fed activation, but I guess it's the wave of the future ;)

    One of the main things I like is in regards to security. With 2003 there is a Reading Pane with lets you see what is in an e-mail without actually opening it up (like in the earlier Preview Pane).

    For spam for each one I use Spambayes.
