Windows 8 and Outlook 2003


QuizMan

Likes # 0

I have run the W8 compatibility checker and everything is fine except, rather surprisingly. MS Outlook 2003. Outlook 2003 is one of those programs that I have used and come to rely on over the years and Outlook is not part of the MS Office 2007 suite that I also use.

I cannot really justify paying for a newer version of Outlook, but can anybody confirm that is does not work with W8? Otherwise, any recommendations for an alternative that will accept OST & PST files?

Thanks to everyone for their input. There are conflicting comments which makes me err on the the side of caution. I can do without Windows 8 (although the £25 upgrade seemed too good to miss), but I cannot do without Outlook 2003 or justify an upgrade to 2010 so I shall stick where I am.
