If you guys actually use Outlook I would suggest that you at least look at Outlook 2003. It is visually more appealing, things are laid out in a more coherent fashion and IMAP works better for me. I don't get the random crashes while doing routine tasks any more either.
Above that, when you look at web services like Google Calendar and others they work with 2003 and newer. It might be worth a sniff if Outlook is something that you use every day.
I saw 2003 on several eBay stores from highly rated sellers in the $30-40 range only a few days ago. As time goes on, more services will sync with Outlook 2003 or newer and at some point new BlackBerries will need something newer than DTM 4.2.
