Bugs worked out with XP SP2 and Outlook?

When SP2 just came out, one functionality that existed in Outlook 2003
(while using Word as e-mail editor) didn't work anymore, the icons (in Web
Tools toolbar) that allowed embedding of sound, video, and marquee text in
e-mail.

I wrote about that problem here, and there was a response that that is a
known bug, that Microsoft was working on.

Has there been a fix for this yet, either through a SP2 update, or an
Outlook 2003 update?

Are you running Windows XP SP2?
I think that is what has broken it (or an update to IE). It's broken in 
Outlook 2003 too.

Actually I am not now running SP2. I did upgrade to SP2, and had various
problems with it, including the one mentioned. So I downgraded back to SP1
(with all the latest updates to SP1).

The feature is not broken in Outlook 2003 running under XP SP1, but only
with SP2.

At some point I would like to upgrade to SP2, so was checking if this bug
has been worked out, with newer updates to SP2 or Outlook 2003. Are you sure
it hasn't been fixed? Do you have the newest updates to both SP2 and
Outlook?

Someone wrote before that Microsoft was aware of this problem and working on
it. Does anyone know when it will be fixed?

It hasn' been fixed yet. They are working on it. No time frame for the fix 
yet.

Details of how Filter By Form works
I'm trying to use Filter By Form in some applications for several projects, and the more I use this functionality, the more it baffles me. For instance: - When a form is displayed as FilterByForm, clicking to close the form doesn't close it - it changes it from FBF view to normal form view - Command buttons are disabled on the form when viewed as FBF - Non-search fields - for instance, a field in the form footer - are disabled, so that a value can't be assigned to those fields while FBF is in force Is there a document out there that explains just how a form in F...

Outlook does not open (crashes)
My apologies if this question has been covered somewhere already. I searched this and other newsgroups, and searched Google for an answer without much luck. I use Outlook 2003 mainly for Tasks, along with a few Calendar items and Contacts. Last week, Outlook just stopped working. When I try to open Outlook, it opens, but as soon as everything is done loading, it disappears. Outlook.exe is not running, which is strange because I have pocket PC, an old HP/Compaq iPAQ 3900 series and Outlook.exe always starts up with the computer.

Outlook 2000 VS XP Notes

He used these to group related emails and files together. Since upgrading to Office XP he can no longer do this. Is there a way to do this in Office XP, using Notes, or in some other fashion?

Transactions By Category Report Bug (Money 2005)
All, I'm experiencing a problem that I can't seem to work around and I hope somebody can help me out. I ran the transaction by category report and selected category A. I then went to the category setup screen and moved category A into B. I then went back to the transactions by category report and this time it won't open. Instead, it acts like it's going to open, but then immediately reverts back to the report menu screen.

If you select the OK button, the load will not converge. I have saved a net worth report that converges and attempted to reload...
