To determine whether the version of Microsoft Outlook you are running is year 2000 (Y2K) compliant, check the client version.

IMPORTANT: You cannot use the Microsoft Exchange Administrator program to make this check even though the Administrator program includes a Client Version column in the private information store Logons container. The client version information in this column is collected from the Emsmdb32.dll file, which resides on the client workstation, and not from the actual client. That is, the client version number displayed in the Client Version column is that of the Emsmdb32.dll file, not Outlook, and therefore, doesn't determine Y2K compliancy for Outlook applications.

To determine the correct version of Microsoft Outlook applications, in Outlook, click About Microsoft Outlook on the Help menu.


To provide in-depth Y2K information for both the IT professional and the home computer user, Microsoft has created the "Microsoft Year 2000 Guide for Home Computers."

Additional query words: Y2K 8.0 8.01 8.02 8.03 8.04 8.5 9.0
