How big of a security risk is Office 2003 for my limited personal usage?

I am still using Office 2003 for personal use. It meets my limited needs perfectly well, and I want to avoid learning curves and costs associated with alternatives if at all possible. I understand that Microsoft will no longer be issuing security patches for it soon, so there are potential risks in continuing to use it, but how serious are those risks given my actual pattern of use? And can they be easily mitigated by avoiding various features or behavior? [more inside]

How to prevent accepted tracked changes from carrying over into an excel + word + outlook email to 50 people?

Hi everyone, Hoping someone can help me sort this problem ... It's a excel + microsoft word document + mail merge to outlook email to 50 people. I am trying to help someone out - this is is as it just as it was described to me: Track changes were accepted and turned off and the email looked as it should - so off went 50 customized emails. ..unfortunately the sent email then shows that all the emails are sent showing all of the tracked change revision markings! Sorry if this is too vague. Thanks for your efforts :)

Good help forum for Office 2010?

Can anyone recommend a good, well-trafficked forum for Microsoft Office (particularly 2010) questions? Seems like this should be eminently Googleable, but maybe because there are so many of them, I'm not finding the one that is the one. Thanks!

Exporting outlook email headers

So I'm doing my expenses, and I want to see every night I sent an email after 8:00 or so, because that implies I took a cab home that night. (I can bill them without receipts, but I want to be honest and I'm doing this for a couple months.) Is there a way to export email headers from Outlook to excel or a csv file, so I can sort them by time and count up my trips?
