On the road report; What is with Outlook

greenspun.com : LUSENET : TimeBomb 2000 (Y2000) : One Thread


As I said, I am on the road. Now in Cascadia. I have the following question: First the facts. Evidently the battery that maintains my clock failed and the computer defaulted to 1956 [of course you know it is a Mac]. When I tried to access my e-mail, the server told me that my clock was set to the wrong date and I couldn't access my accounts. When I reset the clock, it worked well. Why would Outlook care what my clock said?

Best wish

Because Microsoft is out to get you??????

I've left my Mac in 1956, it works just fine, once I start it twice. Automatic Y2K compliance.
