Microsoft Office 2008 12.2.7/Office 2004 11.6.1
Microsoft has released security updates for Microsoft Office 2008 and Office 2004. Both updates fix vulnerabilities that could allow attackers to execute code remotely if you were to open a maliciously crafted Excel or Word file. Microsoft says that the update for Office 2008 also improves stability in Excel
2008 and resolves Entourage 2008 issues with Kerberos authentication and inadvertent duplication of items in Exchange 2007 mailboxes. The Office 2008 update requires Mac OS X 10.4.9 Tiger or later, while the Office 2004 update needs Mac OS X 10.2.8 Jaguar or later. (Free updates; the Office 2008 updater is 333 MB and the Office 2004 updater is 16 MB.)
When initially retrieving email, Entourage automatically filters attached embedded graphic files, which I think is a good idea. There is a link at the top of the email to download those graphics if wanted.
After updating Office 2008 to V. 12.2.7, I discovered the link no longer appears. I can find no way to currently download embedded graphics into my emails.
Does anyone have answers, or is there a bug in Update 12.2.7? If not, is there a way to go back to Update 12.2.6?
This appears to be a bug. Someone in the comments of a blog post about this problem shared a workaround: if you resize the message window, the bar with the link to download the images will appear.
Thanks, Curtis. Your work-around does work. But it's kind of a pain in the behind. I hope MS get it fixed soon.
There is a bug in Office 2004 11.6.1 updater that prevents some Excel files from opening. The fix is Updater 11.6.2.
