This service pack contains all the Cumulative Updates and Public Updates for Office 2007 that have shipped since SP2 for both the Office client suites and applications, and the SharePoint server applications. The Project Server updates are included along with the SharePoint updates in the Office Servers SP3 updates. SP3 also contains additional new fixes which are described here.

@ xpclient: CPAO 2007 SP3 should work with Outlook 2010 (32-bit). It is not supported on 64-bit.
@ Maria Carlson: We released a fix for this issue for both Office 2010 and Office 2007 (support.microsoft.com/.../2586274. Check there for the Outlook 2007 fix: support.microsoft.com/.../2553028)
@Anonymous8867: You can find the Chinese update here: www.microsoft.com/.../details.aspx
@OfficeUser: SP3 includes all the fixes released for Office 2007 since SP2 until August 2011 Public Update (included).
@MCFH, @Mark Heaton and @Jim Bagwell: If the version of the Office Suite installed on your system was delivered with a component updated with SP3, the system will be offered updates for it whether the component is installed or not. The detection logic used to scan for affected systems is designed to check for updates for all components that shipped with the particular Office Suite and offer the updates to a system. Users who choose not to apply an update for a component that is not installed, but is included in their version of the Office Suite, will not increase the security risk of that system. On the other hand, users who do choose to install the update will not have a negative impact on the security or performance of a system.
@email@example.com: We updated the LIP page with clear links. It should work now. (support.microsoft.com/.../2526307)
@ Arian van der Pijl: This is correct.
Regarding losing reminders after installing Office 2007 SP3, why is the hotfix dated Aug 30, 2011? Is the hotfix not part of SP3? Do I need to install SP3 and the hotfix?
