Windows 7 - Can I purchase just Outlook 2007 without the entire office?
Asked By Joe on 07-Mar-07 10:15 AM
I want only Outlook 2007, so that I can synch with my Motorola Q. Will this
product work alone? I have the trial version and it seems to work, but it's
the trial of the entire office suite. Is there anywhere I can download
Outlook instead of getting it mailed to me? I have tried Microsoft but they
only offer full suite downloads.

You can probably pick it up in a store, or order it online from a reseller.

Share Outlook without Exchange: Public ShareFolder
Freeware addin for Outlook: Public Mail 2 Contact

Certainly you can buy it separately. However, if you wish to use MS Word as
your e-mail editor, bot must be the same version.

Not so. Word is the only editor for Outlook 2007. If Word is not installed,
Outlook still has the code it needs in a dll.

Just to clarify -I have Office 2003, on WinXP. I'd like to upgrade to Outlook
2007, but leave the rest of Office as 2003. I use Word (2003) as email
If I just do the Outlook 2007 upgrade, will that mix still work together OK?

Russ, I believe my point was IF the OP wanted to use Word it must be the

Outlook 2007 will use its own embedded version of Word and not integrate
with Word 2003.
