PS just a quick recap:

As of July 19, Microsoft says, "The existing Lookout product will no longer be available."

As of July 23, Microsoft makes Lookout available through its download center at

http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?familyid=09b835ee-16e5-4961-91b8-2200ba31ea37&displaylang=en

As of July 24, Lookout disappears (?) from the download center, both at the link above and in a date-sorted list of Outlook downloads:

Yeh, I'm as confused as you are.

Begs the question - why are they flip-flopping around with this product

my guess is MS wants to make it available, but doesn't want to support it or have it seen as theirs.
