Do I need to install Office 2003 updates for Window 7?

I have a new computer with Window 7 operating system. I used my original disk 
and product code to install Office 2003 and it seemed to go well. Now I am 
wonering if I need to go  back and install Office 2003 updates. I am 
primarily worried about Office 2003 security but thinking maybe Windows 7 
takes care of that. If Windows 7 does not, which ones need to be used to 
update and how do I get access to them?

Yes, you need to install all the security updates and service pack 3 to the 
Office 2003 install.

You can download the stand alone SP 3 here:

Once this is installed you then need to update using Microsoft Update.

Yes, you need them. Nothing to do with Windows 7 security. You get them 
through Windows update.

Exchange for remote users/offices
Up to this point i've used SBS 2003 with POP3 (using Popbeamer)...the reason i chose this from the get go was because we have about 15 users here on site and about another 20 that are scattered across the globe. I didn't want to be in charge of mail for those that weren't here remotely, so figured just using the POP3 route was the way to go. Well, i'm preparing to move to SBS 2008 and REALLY want to set it up as a true Exchange server hosing the mail. But, again, am not sure i want to deal with the other 20 users if i don't have to. So, is there a way to set up ...

Standalone install of Office 98 Upgrade?
I'm in the process of getting an old Mac up and running on OS 9 for my teenager. I want to install Office 98, but my version, in the box, is Upgrade.

Outlook 2003 and "Check Names"
Hi, We are testing Outlook 2003 at our office now and there is one very frustrating "feature" that is bugging all of us. When we create a new e-mail message and type in the first name of a person from the global address book and hit ctrl- k to check the name...we get a response that Outlook doesn't recognize the name and there are "no suggestions". The only way Check Name will successfully resolve the name is if we type it last name first (ie, Gates, Bill). This was not the case in Office XP or Outlook 2000. You could search by first name (or partial first name)...

upgrade from mac office to pc?
Can you upgrade from Office 2004 for Mac to Office 2007 for PC for the lower upgrade price? Or do I have to basically start over and buy Office again for $250 - $300 or whatever it is, if I switch from Mac and buy a new PC? (I have Office '04 on my iMac. I'm weighing buying either a new iMac or a new Dell. The cost of buying Office again makes the inferior-but- cheaper Dell almost as expensive as a new Mac, alas.)

Outlook needs Outlook Express to work

Before Update on record select
I am getting no where fast. I have a main form and sub form and what i need is a message to appear when user moves on to the next record using the record selector on the bottom of the form. I have tried the beforeupdate on the form but no results. Can form design prevent a message prompt? One problem is that if no changes to the current record have been changed, the Before Update event will not fire. If you do make a change, the code as is should work. I have gotten into the habbit of not using the standard record navigators, but write my own so I can easily deal with this. -- Dave Ha...

[Exchange 2003] Mail enabled public folder and sender address

Outlook 2003
Hello, we have one client pc with Outlook 2003 where the following problem occurs: if a mail is replied from a user created sub folder of the inbox, the reply will not appear in sent mails, but will end up in the same sub folder, sender and recipient appear as identical. The mail goes out properly though, it's just that Outlook sets internally sender = recipient and bounces the reply back to the subfolder in which the original mail is stored. This happens on a Win 2000 machine with SP4 and all updates, the other clients use Outlook 2000 or XP and there is no such problem. There are no ru...
