    Where is the update ?

    I don't want to install MS autodownload c*** (as if I could like to have any autocrashing MS app on my mac)

    Seems ok

    I've applied it. So far it hasn't broken anything with Exchange mail.

    I had some very long e-mails that seemed to take several seconds to display in preview. They are not instant now, but they do display much faster.

    WYSIWYG fonts in Entourage seemd to be turned back on. The font list still does not scroll very quickly.

    Enough playing around with it tonight though. For what it's worth, it has not broken anything.
