    The above appears to be my version so maybe Windows installed an automatic update which make it ok?
    I just installed it and let Windows perform updates.
    Thank you for the helpful information; I appreciate your taking the time. So I am relatively ok till 2022?

    Actually 2020, but it looks like you have a few added zeros there. It should be 14.0.7190.5000 not 1400.0.7190.5000, yes?

    And yes, Office has a rather "quiet" update process.

    You're fine, Maranna... Big deal on the numbers; not going to make a whole lot of difference one way or another, since they're not official info. Now, if we were talking financial information, well, umm, err, uhhh...

    Yes, but that's the original version as first released. If that was updated with Service Pack 1 support extended to 10/14/2014, and if then updated to Service Pack 2 there's extended support until 10/13/2020.
    Thanks @Bree, saved me a look into my MS Office 2010 Home and Business SP2 2 more years to procrastinate.

    Thank you all; I can only image the migration away from M$ when these subscriptions etc. and charges go into effect.

    This is just hypothetical as I am staying with M$Office until 2020.
    Does LibreOffice with an email client sound ok? I have three email accounts.
    I know some options are not good as they only have one email or they cost etc.
    Please let me know if there are any red flags.

    P.S. I have come back to report that I would be stuck; non of the choices I found are:
    free, easy to set up, allow for 3 accounts.
    I could not find one that met the above criteria so if you know of one please let me know.

    Good morning, maranna. You may want to consider security as well. e.g. The hack of Yahoo servers. Whichever you use you may want to look into that as well. Is data to and fro encrypted, any news about their system getting hacked, etc.

    Personally I have one MS account with an alias address. I don't trust everyone with my address and it's simple for me to manage. My main address I use for important things like banking, utilities, eBay, etc. accounts. The other I use for what I call junk sites I may try out. If emails get overwhelming there I simply create a new one, register that address for sites I want to keep (very few), and delete the other alias address. It all comes into one box to easily manage as well.

    Edit:

    Of course, Microsoft Office has Outlook as your email client, but for (hypothetical) those who don't have Office, there's Mail built into Windows 10. Also, Outlook.com (Sign in to your Microsoft account) is Microsoft's online mail client and doesn't need MS Office to work. As well, there is Mozilla (think Firefox) Thunderbird, (Thunderbird — Software made to make email easier. — Mozilla).

    For the record, I'm not very familiar with these, since I have always had Outlook with my Office 365 subscription, which I keep because I have three computers and a tablet. I do know that all of them allow multiple email addresses, though.

    So, you have choices, Maranna. I hope this information is helpful to you.
