        A lot of things broke going between '95/98 and NT and now
we're finding problems testing stuff under 2000 as well. Thankfully
we only have a handful of 2000 machines. Oh yes, and now MS has
'fixed' the Mac version of Outlook so that it is 'compatible' with
the viruses for the Windows version! Needless to say, I'm the only
one in the building running the Outlook 2001 Beta and that's just for
testing purposes.

        BTW, we had an interesting thing happen today. Everyone went
into work this morning to find that the MS Exchange server had locked
everyone out with an 'out of license' error message. We manually
went through and checked the licenses in use to find that there were
people that had left nearly two years ago that the server software
still saw as vailid even though thier accounts and all had been
removed. Needless to say, we quickly deleted these bogus licenses
and got things back running again.
