Hi to all and greetings from downunder


I am slowly building up a stockpile of new released MS software and with the task near complete, I've been searching for a reasonably priced copy of Outlook 2007 or 2010.


As luck would have it, I've been given a legal copy of both Outlook 2007 and 2010 (both have installs available) but they're  academic versions and courtesy of my employment, I don't fit the criteria as laid down by Microsoft.


I've read a LOT of conflicting comments regarding my entitlements to use the software.  Some say it's OK given I won't be using Outlook commercially and as I understand it, when registering the product in Australia, I'm not required to enter any details specific to universities, tertiary institutions etc etc. 


Would someone please give me some guidance as to whether my assumptions from what I've read are correct ?  That is, can I use either of these Outlooks without any concerns I'm in breach of the EULAs?


Kind Regards and thanks

<<I don't fit the criteria as laid down by Microsoft.>>


OK, that seems to be your anxwer...regarding the legality, EULA, etc.


You did not need this forum/topic for that :).


If you insist on having someone tell you it's alright...I suggest contacting a responsible representative of Microsoft.  It's their product, their EULA...their terms of use.
