2011 update disables Mail import under Lion

Microsoft has released new updates for the 2011 and 2008 editions of Office for Mac. The 2011 update, v14.1.3, solves a bevy of problems, including documents not opening in some browsers. The bulk of fixes appear to be directed at Outlook, targeting issues such as contact images not displaying in the Contacts Search box. The email client has had import from Mail disabled under Lion, however, since the option "does not work as expected" under Apple's new OS, according to Microsoft.

Elsewhere the 2011 update deals with crashes in Excel and PowerPoint. In Word Microsoft has corrected a glitch with Dutch-language citation options, and added a "Show Items with no data" option to PivotTable.

The 2008 release, v12.3.1, makes just two minor adjustments. Entourage now has updated timezones (like Outlook 2011); Word's Help function, meanwhile, should properly display in all languages.

    Doesn't launch

    For some reason, Outlook won't launch on my MBP, 2.33 Core 2 Duo, 3gb RAM, 10.6.8. It was working before the update: beware!
