I have loaded MS Office 2007 Home version (does not include Outlook 2007). I have MS Outlook 2003 that I still use for mail, calendar, etc. I am running Vista 64-bit system. Is there any way I can force Outlook 2003 text editor function to default to using Word 2003? I believe Outlook 2003 looks and sees Word 2007 as the Word version text editor and sees it as not compatible. It then only allows the Outlook embedded editor to be used. This results in word items previously saved in Outlook 2003 using Word 2003, like signatures, to get all screwed up.
Is there anyway I can force Outlook 2003 to use Word 2003 as the editor instead of being forced into using the default Outlook text editor? I want Outlook 2003 text editing to function in exactly the same way it did before I loaded MS Office 2007 Home version?
