Microsoft re-issues Outlook 2007 update after Dec. blunder
Nearly a month after it yanked an Outlook 2007 update over connection and performance problems, Microsoft this week re-released the patch to correct its mistakes.
Microsoft re-issued the Outlook 2007 update on Tuesday, saying it had addressed the problems with connecting to mail servers, sluggish folders and automatic archiving that surfaced almost immediately after the original fix was offered to users Dec. 14.
The company pulled the update from its patch service two days later and apologized for the gaffe.
In a post to the Office team's blog, Microsoft urged users to retrieve the reworked update via Windows Update, or by manually downloading the new version from its site.
Several users said that the new patch solved their problems.
