Answer

Outlook 2000 can be installed in one of two modes, Internet or Corporate.

  1. Installing in Internet Mode allows the use of SMTP, POP, or IMAP but does not allow the use of user defined plugins.
  2. Installing in Corporate Mode allows the use of Exchange, User Defined Plugins and Internet Mode. However under this option Internet Mode does not allow the use of IMAP.

Outlook 2002 and Outlook XP do not rely on this dual mode of operation, therefore upgrading Outlook will allow the use of both IMAP and user defined plugins simultaneously.
