The best way to upgrade to Outlook 98 is to obtain the Outlook 98 CD-ROM. Some stores may have copies of the Microsoft Press books that pertain to Outlook 98, and some of these books include CD-ROMs. The CD-ROMs contain the Outlook 98 software, tutorials, and other helpful information.

The following are the titles of some of the Microsoft Press books that pertain to Outlook 98:

  • Microsoft Outlook 98 Step by Step
  • Running Microsoft Outlook 98
  • Mastering Microsoft Outlook 98
  • Building Applications with Microsoft Outlook 98

It is important that you verify that the particular issue of the book that you want does, indeed, include a copy of the CD-ROM. The CD-ROM is usually placed in a sealed cover on the inside of the back cover of the book.
