DetachPipe 5.8.13 - worked around shoddy Microsoft code

Postby DataMystic Support » Fri Mar 05, 2010 10:43 am

We found and worked around a bug in Microsoft Outlook 2003 (and probably 2000, 2002 and 2007), where Outlook cannot handle retrieving emails by received date if the date includes the seconds.

We tried calling Microsoft to advise them of this problem, but they wanted us to pay $80 to speak with an engineer.

We offered to advise them of a bug in their product for free, but there is no way we are going to pay them to advise them of a bug in their software.

Microsoft retains its well-deserved reputation for shoddy software.

If you have any contacts in MS engineering please let us know their email so we can advise them.
