You really need these patches, they contain so much good things that you simply cannot do without them. Number 1 is the big improvement for big OST and PST files. The performance gain is really outstanding if you have a couple of GB in your files.
Number 2 is the changed behavior when outlook closes that gives you fewer corrupt files and faster shutdown of outlook.
Number 3 is all the good calendar bugfixes.
