Microsoft Releases Cumulative Update for Outlook Express 6 Service Pack 1

Yesterday, Microsoft released an update that corrects some problems in Microsoft Outlook Express for Windows. According to Microsoft Knowledge Base Article 887797 the following problems where addressed:

  • When you use Outlook Express to send an e-mail message to a specific recipient in your address book, the e-mail message is delivered correctly. However, the subject line of the received message is empty, and the body of the message contains header information. Sometimes, the message may contain recipients that were included in the BCC (Blind Carbon Copy) field of the message.
  • When you use Outlook Express to send an e-mail message that is larger than then the size you specify in the Break apart messages larger than option in the Properties dialog box for the e-mail account, the e-mail message is sent as a multipart message. If you have also included e-mail recipients in the BCC field of the e-mail message, e-mail recipients who are listed in the To field or in the CC field of the multipart e-mail message may be able to view the e-mail recipients who are listed in the BCC field. This behavior occurs if the e-mail recipients who are listed in the To or CC fields copy the e-mail message to the desktop, and then use Notepad to open the e-mail message.
  • When you receive an Outlook Express e-mail message that was sent by using a Japanese version of Microsoft Windows XP, the name that is displayed in the From field may not appear correctly.
  • When you use the Microsoft Collaboration Data Object (CDO) to filter e-mail on a Microsoft Exchange server, a corrupted e-mail message on the server may cause an infinite loop when the CDO processes the message. This behavior may cause the CPU usage that is displayed in Task Manager to approach 100 percent. The CDO libraries use interfaces that are included in Outlook Express for data collection and for parsing.
  • When you use a custom program, such as a backup program, that uses Simple MAPI (Messaging Application Programming Interface) for e-mail notification, the notifications may stop after the program tries to send a Simple MAPI command. This problem occurs because Simple MAPI has stopped responding. The program may still function correctly, but it cannot send e-mail notifications.
  • After you install Windows XP Service Pack 2 (SP2), the body text of HTML-based e-mail messages that are sent from Outlook Express may be truncated and may be missing data. This problem may occur if the e-mail message contains non-ASCII characters, such as Chinese characters.
  • If you install Windows XP SP2, and then you open a *.mht file from a Microsoft Office SharePoint Portal Server 2003-based Web site, the text or the images that are associated with the file do not display. A red "X" appears instead of the images. This problem may occur if large .mht files are stored on a SharePoint Portal Server computer.

Supported Operating Systems: Windows 2000 Service Pack 3, Windows 2000 Service Pack 4, Windows XP
