Outlook Express 5.0.3 Fixes Access Problems -- Microsoft has released Outlook Express 5.0.3, a maintenance update of the free email and news client. The update restores the capability to access MSN Hotmail accounts, which was disrupted recently when Microsoft modified its Passport servers. In addition, Outlook Express 5.0.3 adds support for accessing MSN Internet accounts and offers enhanced SMTP AUTH support for authenticated transmission of outgoing messages. The update is a free 9.1 MB download. [JLC]
