    I have Outlook 2003, and want to upgrade. However, my computer operates on XP with SP3 and 64 bit not the 32 required. What do you suggest? Is there an alternative program I can use?

      Good Day Karen,
      I’m sorry to tell you that you cannot install Office 2010 to your XP SP3 64 bit architecture.
      you might as well upgrade your Operating System (OS) too if your going to install Office 2010. or use Windows XP SP3 32 bit architecture if you have one.
