Office 2003 SP2 released

by Nikola Strahija on October 2nd, 2005 With the release of Service Pack 2 for Office 2003 Microsoft issued a handful of security tweaks. The update is designed to improve the reliability of the latest version of Microsoft's office productivity suite along with support for upgraded applications, security improvements, stability and performance improvements.


In order to fight off phishing, SP2 brings improved handling of spam emails sent to an Outlook user's junk mail folder. Junk messages are now rendered as plain text, preventing HTML information from being viewed inadvertently. Links also now disabled in spam email messages with SP2.

SP2 includes numerous fixes and enhancements for Office applications and servers designed to improve application stability. In a related development, Windows SharePoint Services and Microsoft Office InfoPath 2003 have been updated to include support for the upcoming releases of SQL Server 2005 and Visual Studio 2005. Office 2003 SP2 will be distributed via Microsoft Update and Office update or it's available for customers as a separate download from Microsoft's web site.
